This walkway looks nice. It’s close to the harbour and old town. Some small market shops are there with all kid of goods. The city also provides wooden stools to sit on where quite a lot of people make use of.

Easy to get to from the Metro station, and a must whilst in Barca. You can either take the steps to the top, or the escalators,either way its a beautiful location and well worth spending an afternoon.

This is a large plaza which seems to be a main interconnect for buses and coaches rather than an attraction. It is near to the base of the hill up to Montjuic, and not too far from the 'Font Magica' fountains and the Venetian Towers.

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
