Plaza Catalunya was designed by architect Francesc de Paula Nebot. It was inaugurated on November 2nd 1927 by King Alphonso XIII. The plaza has 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.
