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.

 

>Take advantage of being in the area to visit Barcelona Cathedral, which is just a short walk away. One of the most important and symbolic monuments in Barcelona.

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.

Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Green Line
Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?

Dla mnie Barcelona to miasto Hiszpanii i wiele ciekawych zabytków oraz dużo turystów jest w nim tak na prawdę i myślę że jeszcze bym chciał tam polecieć bo chcę zwiedzić muzeum FC Barcelony i przejechać się kolejką linową jaka to jest atrakcja dla mnie najbardziej w tym ale wiem że dużo zwiedziłem z Adamem tych właśnie miejsc chociaż stałem się dobrym podróżnikiem ale radość we mnie jest w tym to jest najważniejsze w moim życiu codziennym Ja z Adamem stworzyłem najlepszą grupę przyjaciół w tej Hiszpanii tam na plaży Barceloneta skradłem całusy pięknym dziewczynom bo mi się podobają jak się legną do mnie takie osoby młode i to właśnie potrzebują dziewczyny tego mojego ciepła mojego ciała
