Barcelona, Spain (2)

barcelona-spain-3Another pin from the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona. I am NO fan of rock music, but I love the atmosphere of Hard Rock Cafes around the world. My hotel was not far from the Plaça de Catalunya (Catalan language) meaning in English “Catalonia Square”; sometimes referred to as Plaza de Cataluña, its Spanish name. The Square is a large square in central Barcelona that is generally considered to be both its city center and the place where the old city and the 19th century-built city meet.

Some of the city’s most important streets and avenues meet at Plaça Catalunya. The plaza occupies an area of about 50,000 square meters. It is especially known for itsplaca-de-catalunya fountains and statues, its proximity to some of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, and for the flocks of pigeons that gather in the center. January weather was not bad and the tourist population seems to be very small compared to the favorite tourist months.
