Plaça d'Espanya, Barcelona: 48 reviews and 120 photos

 
 

The Avinguda de la Reina María Christina is a very wide avenue and is flanked by the two Venetian Towers. The Towers draw their name from the fact that they were built by Ramon Reventés to resemble the Bell Tower of the San Marco Square in Venice and served as an entrance portal to the grounds of the 1929 International Fair. The 47 metre high towers lead to the fountains and light columns that line both sides of the avenue.
