Plaça de Catalunya. Plaza Catalunya is downtown Barcelona's central square. It was designed by architect Francesc de Paula Nebot and inaugurated on November 2nd 1927 by Spanish King Alphonso XIII. It was designed with a small temple, a central colonnade, fountains and sculptures.

When the square was opened there were 29 sculptures in stone and bronze by leading sculptors of the time. Josep M. Subirachs's monument to former President Francesco Macià later brought the number of sculptures to 29.
