Plaza Catalunya
is Barcelona's central square. It was designed by architect Francesc de Paula Nebot and inaugurated on November 2nd 1927 by King Alphonso XIII. It was designed with a small temple with a central colonnade, fountains and 28 sculptures in stone and bronze, by leading sculptors of the time. Josep M. Subirachs's striking monument to former President of Catalunya Francesco Macià later brought the number of sculptures to 29. Plaza Catalunya is the center of public transport in Barcelona with many metro, bus and tour bus connections.

Barcelona's main Tourist Office of Barcelona is on Plaza Catalunya in an underground office on the corner of Plaza Catalunya. Plaza Catalunya is the place where two of Barcelona´s most famous streets begin (or end) which are  La Rambla walking street and the elegant designer shopping boulevard Passeig de Gracia.  On Plaza Catalunya itself you can find the top department store El Corte Ingles - American restaurant and bar Hard Rock Cafe Barcelona, a small shopping centre El Triangle and many top hotels near Plaza Catalunya. Plaza Catalunya is an important transport hub and the first place many tourists arrive in Barcelona if you take the Aerobus airport buses in front of the Corte Ingles store to and from Barcelona Airport.  There also many night buses and regional buses connections on Plaza Catalunya, as well as the station Catalunya, where you can catch metro trains, regional trains and FGC trains.
