The Royal Square (Plaça Reial in Catalan) is a large trapezoidal square built in the middle of the 19th century, located next to the Rambla, in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. The palms and 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 to adjacent streets are 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 held a market of stamps and coins.
