This plays a key role in Barcelona's urban network, and is one of the city's main routes.
Born in 1929.
Are you ready to see the second largest square in Spain? Barcelona’s España Plaza was built in 1929 and was the starting point for the main road that connected the city to the country’s capital. Although this route is no longer in use, it is still one of the most travelled areas in Barcelona. It connects four of the city’s main roads, as it is right in the centre, between Gran Via de Las Cortes Catalanas, Tarragona Street, Creu Coberta Street and Maria Cristina Avenue. At the very end, Montjuic Park awaits you. In the same square, you will also find the old bullring, commonly known as ‘La Monumental’, which is now Las Arenas Shopping Centre. In the middle of the square is a fountain, which sits where the enormous cross of the square’s initial project used to be found. This cross symbolised the city’s border. Behind the shopping and monumental area, you will find the Joan Miro Park, a large green space, ideal for some rest and relaxation. From here, you can walk through Las Cortes Street to get back to the city centre.
