A lovely little square with beautiful architecture. It now has government buildings including City Hall and Palace of the Generalitat of Catalonia. Nice area to stroll along.

This is a small square, surrounded by some shops, restaurants and government buildings. Not much was going on when I passed by. Some basic nativity decorations were up since it was December.

When this place is best, when there is Diada Castellera, at "Las Fiestas de la Mercé". You have to arrive at 12 or even early

Nice corner, always busy, going from Jaume to Las Ramblas (Ferrane street). Shopping stores. Cafés and restaurants. So close to the gothic area, to Barcelona Cathedral. Eat tapas there.

This is not only de core of the city, but also of Catalonia. Here you find, for example, both Barcelona's and Catalonia's goverment buildings (Ajuntament and Palau de la Generalitat). Also, it is not only a beautiful place, the fact of arriving there worths it...More

It is a square. If you do not have a guide, you probably won't enjoy too much, once the history around this area is the main thing. If you are passing by, you should give a look at the buildings. It is quite full of...More

There's not much to do here but Placa de Saint Jaume really is a stunning square with some beautiful buildings. It's a lovely spot to walk through from the cathedral down towards Barceloneta.
