Plaça d'Espanya, Bacelona - No Bull

The monumental fountain that rises up in the centre of the Plaça Espanya is one of the iconic images of this part of Barcelona. You’ll get a great view of the fountain from the top of the former bull ring, now converted to a shopping mall.

Bullfighting was banned in Barcelona in January 2012.

There’s a nice walk up past the columns that grace the square to the majestic National Art Museum of Catalonia and to the fountains and waterfalls that flow below.
