Barcelona Spain Tourist Information and City Guide
Placa d'Espanya is one of Barcelona's great squares. At its centre, is a fountain that was designed by Josep Maria Jujol, one of Gaudi's many followers.
The two large Venetian Towers (brick campaniles) mark the entrance to Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, the road that leads up to the Magic Fountain.
The Fira de Barcelona (convention centre) is located left of the twin towers.
Barcelona's former bullring is also located on the square. It was converted into an upscale shopping mall with a spectacular rooftop observation deck.
