The best time to see Placa Espanya is at night when the area is lit up. Unfortunately during my visit to Barcelona there was a trade fair in the Placa d'Esapanya exhibition rooms so the area was not lit up as much as usual :( but it was still impressive especially the Palau Nacional which was lit up from behind with spotlights. THe mighty venetian towers are based on St. Mark's in Venice and mark the entrance to the trade exhibition halls and to Montjuic itself.

Address: Avingudade la Reina María Cristina
Directions: Metro lines blue 5, green 3 and red 1 to Espanya station.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
