Plaça de Catalunya stop

Hola Barcelona, your travel solution

It is practically impossible to visit Barcelona without passing through Plaça de Catalunya, the nexus of the Old Town and the Eixample district and the convergence point of the public transport network and some of the city’s most important thoroughfares.

Starting point for various routes through the centre of Barcelona

Plaça de Catalunya is the starting point of the Blue Route and of the Red Route of Barcelona Bus Turístic and of the various routes of Catalunya Bus Turístic.

From Plaça de Catalunya you can walk down La Rambla, which forms the border between the Gothic Quarter and the Raval district. You can also walk along the spectacular Passeig de Gràcia, which is home to some of the major Modernista buildings designed by architects like Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch; or opt for its parallel street, Rambla de Catalunya, which is much quieter and has bars with terraces where you can watch the world go by.

This square is also the starting point of Ronda de Sant Pere and Ronda de la Universitat, which follow the course of the old city walls and take you to the Arc de Triomf and Plaça de la Universitat, respectively.
