Plaša Sant Jaume, Barcelona: 14 reviews and 31 photos
This square, reminiscent of an Italian piazza, is the political centre of Barcelona. The ancient Barcelona was founded excatly here (on Mons Taber, they built the roman forum here) and nowadays we can find the two political powers: the Generalitat (or the seat of the Catalan Autonomous Government) and the Town Hall.
You might find strange this big square in the middle of the narrow streets of the Barri G˛tic. This is a result of a "desamortitzaciˇ" (destruction of a lot of houses) in 1823 to build this square and the Princesa and Ferran streets.
Sant Jaume Square has this name in honour of a little church dedicated to Sant Jaume that was exactly here
Address: Plaša Sant Jaume
