How to get to Plaça de Sant Jaume

Plaça de Sant Jaume
08002 Barcelona, Spain

Plaça de Sant Jaume is the main square in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona. Placa de Sant Jaume is often used for festivals and procession - and also for demonstrations. Plaça de Sant Jaume is located on the ancient site of the Roman forum in Roman town called Barcino which later became Barcelona.

In Roman times this plaza was the city center and was on the junction of the Roman  citys main streets Cardo Maximus and Decumanus Maximus.

Barcino's four city gates were at the end of these two streets which today are called Carrer Ciutat / Carrer del Bisbe ( = Decumanus Maximus) and Carrer Llibreteria (= Cardo Maximus).

Barcino was a small city but even today there are impressive remnants of Barcelona Roman city walls in the gothic area.

Plaça de Sant Jaume houses two government buildings. One is the renaissance palace El Palau de la Generalitat which is the home of the regional government of Catalonia region - called the Generalitat de Catalunya. Opposite you can see the neo-classical town hall building of the ciy council of Barcelona called Ajuntament de Barcelona
