14 things to do and see with a theme of Boulevards and Squares.

These are open paved public spaces of interest in and around Barcelona. A boulevard or "Rambla" is a wide avenue or street that is pedestrianised and a good place to walk and take in the city. A square or "Plaza" is an open air space for outside dining and chilling.

This list details my favourite boulevards and squares in Barcelona and the towns of Catalunya.

Happy Exploring!
