A fantastic place to hang around with family and kids in Barcelona. Literally half the city come here to spend the evenings. Located perfectly, it's very comfortable to reach with the underground metro station and all the tourist hop on hop off buses which start/end there. If you're going to Barcelona, you may want to spend more than one evening there!
Keep your memories close and your bags closer. We loved this area. It is where you can easily wander, shop, eat, walk, and board the buses to see the city. Barcelona is well known for pickpockets, and in fact we did see some from our hotel window. Please keep a watchful eye on your belongings and you'll be okay. Never set anything down even to take a picture, or it will be GONE.
