    A great choice of restaurants around the sides of the square, a beautiful fountain in the center. We enjoyed just sitting there, watching the street dancers.

    Keep walking! The square looks nice, but it's full of overpriced tourist traps, pickpockets and beggars

    Sort of the main modern plaza in the old city center. Cool to walk around in, also where Gaudi walking tours often start, but otherwise a little bit too touristy. Especially the restaurants.

    This is where you can truly feel the Mediterranean spirit of Barcelona! Also, Gaudi's first civil engineering project is here --- the street lights.

    Really nice place in Barcelona to sit and watch the world go by. It's best to go early evening as it's not full of drunk people from the clubs.

    A whiff of fresh air in one of the busiest parts of Barcelona. Sit by the fountain or in one of the many restaurants and enjoy people watching!

    If you go to Plaça Real pay atention to the 2 Gaudi Streetlights and don´t miss the opportunity of watching a jazz concert at Jamboree or an Indie one at Sidecar. Tarantos for flamenco!

    Nice plaça in central Barcelona. The bars/restaurants are 'touristy' but still not too expensive.

    Great place to sit a relax but they are mostly restaurants can be hard to find a seat just for drinking beer. Food served is good quality but they are a little arrogant when it comes to service. Slow!

    Beautiful square surrounded by palm trees and lit by street lamps designed by Gaudi. Watch the queue in front of Les Quinze Nuits grow around dinner time.

    A hidden gem next to the Rambla. Unwind and have a cocktail or Moritz, the Barcelona beer. The prices here are a bit higher, but certainly worth it! Also very nice in the evening!
