Placa d'Espanya Tours

star-4.5
11 Reviews
Placa d'Espanya
Plaça d'Espanya is one of the busiest hubs of activity in Barcelona. Its Magic Fountain (Font Màgica) is the site of an evening light-and-sound show, while its National Palace (Palau Nacional) houses Catalonia’s national art museum. Reminiscent of those in Venice, the two towers on the Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina are city landmarks.

The Basics
A common meeting point for travelers and locals alike, Plaça d'Espanya is located at the intersection of main roads such as Paral·lel and Gran Via. The boulevard, known for its stately architecture, also has a major metro and train stop.

Due to its central location and plethora of attractions, Plaça d'Espanya features on virtually every sightseeing tour in the city, and most visitors are bound to end up here at least once. Nighttime tours, including those by electric bike, typically stop at the plaza for a show at the Magic Fountain. The Red Route of the Barcelona hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus also stops at the plaza on its way up and down Montjuïc.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Plaça d'Espanya is a must-see for all first-time visitors, and the fountain show is a hit with kids.
  • Don’t forget to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat, as there isn’t much shade in the area.
  • Bring your camera; this plaza is loaded with photo opportunities.
  • The Plaça d'Espanya train station is fully wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There
Plaça d'Espanya is in the Sants-Montjuïc district of Barcelona. Metro lines 1, 3, and 8 all stop here, as do numerous city buses. It’s about a 35-minute walk from the Old City (Ciutat Vella).

When to Get There
The best time to visit Plaça d'Espanya is early in the morning, just as the sun is rising, or in the evening when the sun is beginning to set. The light during these times makes for the best images of the square’s grand architecture. Come after dark to see the free fountain show.

What’s Nearby
Plaça d'Espanya has one of the heaviest concentrations of attractions outside the Old City. Head between the two giant towers to the CaixaForum art museum, or continue up the stairs to the National Art Museum of Catalonia. From there, Poble Espanyol and the Joan Miró Foundation are both within walking distance.
Address: Sants-Montjuïc District, Barcelona 08004, Spain
