Plaça Catalunya, Barcelona: As Seen From El Corte Inglés
Today I will sacrifice a little quality so I can share with you this sight of Plaza Cataluña as seen from El Corte Inglés (check the picture to see the windows from where I shot).
When you visit this square, in the middle of what we consider the center of Barcelona, don´t forget to do something that most tourists fail to do, enter the shopping center and reach the top floor.
You will find a cafe-bar with a spectacular view over this neuralgic spot and the rest of the city. From there you can see Montjuic or Paseo de Gracia in all its length. The bad thing is that the restaurant is covered with glass panels that filter the light and hinder pictures in some way.
Here is another image where you can see the sea side of the square, touching the entrance to Las Ramblas in the background, where the big sign is.
See Picture of Plaça Catalunya on a Google Earth Map.
