Plaça Catalunya

Plaça Catalunya BarcelonaPractically everybody that has been in Barcelona has been in Plaça Catalunya as it is the hub for Barcelona's public transportation (metro, train from/to the airport, bus from/to the airport). It is a beautiful square surrounded by stunning buildings such us the Banco de España (see picture) and the famous mega department store 'El Corte Inglés'. It is also where the La Rambla begins.

Castellers BarcelonaCastellers are one of the greatest and most impressive Catalan traditions. A Castell (castle) consists of a human tower which can have up to ten levels high.

Castells are built during local festivals where competitions between groups (colles) take place in order to build the most impressive castell. In order to be successful they have to be assembled and dismantled.
