Photographer's Note

Plaša Catalunya (or Plaša de Catalunya, both being the official Catalan language names; Plaza de Catalu˝a in Spanish) is a large square in central Barcelona that is generally considered to be both its city centre and the place where the old city (see Barri G˛tic and Raval, in Ciutat Vella) and the 19th century-built Eixample meet.

Some of the city's most important streets and avenues meet in Plaša Catalunya: Passeig de GrÓcia, Rambla de Catalunya, La Rambla or Portal de l'└ngel, in addition to Ronda de Sant Pere, Carrer de Vergara or Carrer de Pelai. It has an area of about 50,000 square metres. It is especially known for its fountains and statues, its proximity to some of Barcelona's most popular attractions, and for the impressive flocks of pigeons that gather in the centre
