Plaça Catalunya And Around
If you’re coming on holiday, Barcelona City Centre is where you are likely to spend most of your time and where you will probably look for accommodation.
Many hotel, hostel and apartment booking sites suggest that some establishments are closer to the City Centre than they actually are so the aim of this page is to come with a general definition of what Barcelona City Centre actually is.
As far as most locals are concerned, the centre of Barcelona is Plaça de Catalunya, which acts as a hub between the city’s two central districts:
* Ciutat Vella or the Old City
* L’Eixample or Extension (beyond the old city walls)
However, please bear in mind that both Ciutat Vella and The Eixample are large districts and include neighbourhoods that are outside the City Centre.
