Tip Tourists often have difficulties finding the Catalunya tourist office - even though it's the biggest tourist office in Barcelona and it's on the busiest square in Barcelona. Why? Because it's underground! The way to find it is first to find the El Cortes Inglés (the large shopping complex) the tourist office is close but actually under the Catalunya Square near the fountain. Look for the large pillars with an " I " at the top. These pillars are just outside the tourist office. There are two entrances to the Barcelona tourist office - each pillar marks an entrance.
