Barcelona Barri Gòtic (Photo 1 of 7)
This square called "Plaça del Pi" is only five minutes walk from the Ramblas and is also close to the Liceu metro stop.
There are two outdoor cafes in this square. It's relaxing to sit outside, have a coffee and just soak up the atmosphere.
On many occasions there will be a street performer providing music or some other form of entertainment, all of which add to the atmosphere.
This square often has street stalls set up by locals selling traditional Catalan craft work and on other occasions you'll find local artists displaying their artwork or a few that offer to draw your portrait. These stalls are normally set up on Saturdays and Sundays.
Most of this area is pedestrianized and is free of traffic.
