Placa D'espanya # 2 - Barcelona
Photograph - Photographs
Plaça d'Espanya is one of Barcelona's most important squares, built on the occasion of the 1929 International Exhibition, held at the foot of Montjuïc, in the Sants-Montjuïc district.
One of the city's biggest squares, it is the junction of several major thoroughfares: Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Avinguda del Paral·lel, Carrer de la Creu Coberta and Carrer de Tarragona, and leads to the Palau Nacional through Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, which houses one of Catalonia's finest museums, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC). It was designed by Josep Amargós. The fountain at the centre of the square was designed by Josep Maria Jujol, a collaborator of Antoni Gaudí, while Miquel Blay designed the statues. The buildings were designed by Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí.
Here we see an exciting aerial view from Barcelona's now closed bullring which has been converted into a pedestrian mall with shops , restaurants and a circular walkway atop the building affording these wonderful views.
This view features prominently the Venetian Towers which of course are modeled after the tower in Venice. They form a gateway to the Magic Fountain and the National Museum of the Arts.
