Walking up Las Ramblas from the sea front, Placa Reial can be found through an alleyway on your right hand side, about one third of the way up Barcelona's most famous street.
Gaudi's influence on this palm tree-lined plaza extends no further than the lampposts, but with hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and outdoor cafes maintaining a constant buzz in this plaza day and night, you will come back again and again.
Placa Reial is one step down from Las Ramblas on the list of Barcelona tourist traps and is only 30 seconds away from it, making it the perfect escape from the hustle of Barcelona's most famous street.
