Sights of Barcelona: Placa Reial

Placa Reial is the ultimate place for a romantic evening. This wonderful square, the old street lamps designed by Gaudí, and the tall palmtrees creates a great background for a good dinner or an evening drink.

Placa Reial is a favourite. It is situated just a stones throw away from La Rambla, and the entire square was constructed in the 19th century. There are arcades around the whole square housing bars as Colon and Cerveseria Canarias, where you can get a drink and some tapas. You can also get a great dinner at Les Quinzenitz, Taxidermista, or Santa Monica.

So a visit to this beautiful old square is highly recommendable. It ended up as our favourite area to eat and drink. I will share our culinary memories from four restaurants and bars around the square.

So enjoy!
