The Royal Square (Plaça Reial in Catalan) It is a large trapezoidal porticoed square built in the mid-19th century and located next to La Rambla, in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. The palm trees and the neoclassical buildings give a distinguished and exotic touch to the ensemble.

In the center of the square stands the fountain of the Three Graces (1876), the work of Antoine Durenne, flanked by lampposts designed by Antoni Gaudí. The passages that connect the plaza to adjacent streets are also very interesting.

Plaça Reial is one of the liveliest and most cosmopolitan places in the city. Under its arcades, the terraces of the restaurants, bars and cafes are filled with tourists during the day and especially at night when the square becomes one of the best places for nightlife lovers.
On Sunday morning in the square it is held a market of stamps and vintage coins.
