La Plaça del Rei, Tinell and the chapel Saint Agata

 
This is the most handsome section of ancient Barcelona. It is a square outlined by gothic buildings toped by the facade of the former main Royal Palace and its watchtower- a true skyscraper for the 16th Century. The Plaça del Rei ( the King Square) is the most noble urban space of old Barcelona. On this majestic square stand some of the important medieval buildings of the city: the Palau Reial Mayor which contains the exquisite Saló Tinell banqueting hall, the Chapel of Santa Agatha and the Palau de Lloctinent

De préférence, essayez d'y aller un dimanche après midi. Beaucoup moins de monde que la semaine, même en période estivale. Prenez votre temps, marchez, savourez les lieux, profitez des bancs publics. N'oubliez pas de lever les yeux car les sommets des bâtiments sont magnifiques.
