Favorite thing: Not really a 'must see' while in Barcelona - but Placa Reial is a very beautiful square, and if you have time, you should check it out.

I was lucky enough that the hostel I was staying at was situated in one of the buildings around this square. It is filled with cafes and restaurants, and is a great place to grab a meal and relax.

Or an alternative is to just buy a drink, sit against the fountain or on one of the seats around the square and just people watch. It really is like a picture from a postcard :).

Placa Reial is found about a third of the way up Las Ramblas on the right (if coming from the harbour).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
