Plaça d'Espanya is one of Barcelona's most important and biggest squares, built on the occasion of the 1929 International Exhibition, held at the foot of Montjuïc, in the Sants-Montjuïc district. This shot has been taken from a roof of the Les Arenes building. I'm sure you will be able to recognize many well-known buildings and monuments from that view! Have a nice weekend to all!:)

very nice this panoramic view of the Plaça d'Espanya, with the characteristic monument in the round about and the two towers to welcoming the visitors as the turists too.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Witaj dzisiejsz sasiadko!
Pamietam to piekne miejsce w Barcelonie. Fajne ujcie z wysokiego POV. Podoba mi sie w tym ujeciu. Za tymi "weneckimi" wiezami jest jeszcze piekniej.

mi piace questo panorama per la composizione apprezzabile e per il bel contrasto tra il verde della piazza e l'azzurro del cielo.
Indovinata la posizione leggermente decentrata della piazza che dà grande respiro alla foto senza sacrificare l'architettura circostante.
Buono il colore e apprezzabilke la nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Beautiful composition and colours. It is ironic that this is called a square.

ladnie uchwycona scena z dobrze wybranego punktu widzenia. Duzo ruchu i dynamiki w tym zdjeciu. Ladne, naturalne kolory.

Grand view from the old arena, nowadays a mall, as happens in many Spain and Portugal towns, Gosia.
The Plaza-de-Espanea offers wonderful and most intriguing scenery in Barcelona, especially over the Mont.-Juic and also about town buildings and boulevards, modern and older.
Recognized here several known monuments in town.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Yes, I recognize the square, the monuments and the buildings but you managed to present them from an original POV. This view I haven't seen before.
This beautiful city panorama is also shown under a wonderful sky.
Best regards, Paul

a great shot of this Barcelona roundabout that is a nightmare to negotiate in an English car!! I remember it so distinctly and it is well over 20 years since I saw it. A superb POV that shows us so much of the rich architectural history and beauty of this great city. Wonderful image!
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

Its a pleasant enought scene, a breathtaking skyline taken from the best vantage point in bright light and colors and great dof. Perpective is excellent with effective diagonal, excellent focal point for the eyes to meander around with bags of details and wonderful touch of greenery. The feel is thoroughly lively, a post card material that makes for a very eyecatching city scene. Great shot. Congrats, TFS

very good pov and framing for this view, so nice light and architecture...clear details every were...this is a wonderful city mix of old and new architecture...

From the work of Juan (JFS), Krzysztof (Krzychu30) and others, I've now long thought of Barcelona as a city comprised entirely of magnificent modern skyscrapers, but you remind me here that there's another side to the city. This is a beautiful high POV that really gives a sense of the geography and layout of the place, with beautiful focus on the monument ad good balance with the other beautiful old buildings and monuments visible. Thanks!
chrislo (4155) 2013-03-17 11:17
Your high vantage point lets us fully appreciate the amazing sight of this square and its surroundings. The clarity is superb and there is so much to look at. There isn't much traffic around the roundabout at this time of the day, but the cloudy sky adds to the dynamic range of the scene. Excellent picture.
jusninasirun (17160) 2013-03-17 17:26
This square was captured from vantage pov. It looks like a roundabout with cars stopping inside it. Great details against the beautiful sky.
Thanks and have a nice day.

Hi Gosia, very good picture of this interesting view of the Plaza of Spain. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and beautiful color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting and well done.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
ChrisJ (99304) 2013-03-18 12:30
A superb high pov with good sharpness and superb color and saturation. I like the twin columns at left capped with triangles. The circular green oblong shape is eyecatching. Interesting cloud patterns in the sky. Tfs!
macjake (57074) 2013-03-22 4:41
great to see Barcelona from this POV, i don't think I've ever seen it before like this.
I'm sure Juan will be pleased :)
the clouds are just as attractive, and of course the circular pattern and green color stands out well.
eldancer1 (28513) 2013-03-27 7:46
Great pov of this traffic circle surrounded by awesome architectures. Las Vegas is starting to use them. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
jcpix (13688) 2013-03-27 18:25
Great look out over the Placa d'Espanya, this elevated vantage point really offers a stunning view! There are so many things to take in with this perspective, and the large circular shape makes a very captivating centerpiece. The green grass and blue sky is a lovely color combination and the light is bright and warm. Thanks for sharing this part of the cities grid. Have a great day.
siolaw (38284) 2013-04-02 8:29
I am quite surprised there is so little traffic there... is it always like that?! You found an excellent high POV giving us a bird's eye view of the huge square.
Fine general quality too.
EstelleJ (921) 2013-04-03 12:36
Beautiful wide city panorama! I like very much the sense of openness here. A lot of sky in the image adds to this feeling of space. The green grassy circle with the fountain in the middle of the Square d'Espanya is a great focal point in this photo.
Barcelona is a wonderful city, some day I really hope to visit it.
claudeD (33234) 2013-04-04 9:49

It looks fantastic from this view point, great POV and composition.
pierrefonds (57531) 2013-04-21 17:18
The wideness of the Plaça is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the buildings and of the Plaça d'Espanya. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.
