Plaza del Pi is without any doubt, one of our favourite. It is the most interesting and Bohemian Square of the Gothic quarter. Lying near Plaza de Sant Josep Oriol, street Petritxol and Santa Maria del Pi church it has ancient shops and restaurants with traditional cuisine.
In Sants neighbourhood is Plaza d’Osca. You could enjoy in an easy-going and impressive area. Furthermore, at night is ideal if you are keen on restaurants and bars with terrace. You will have to be patient because every day people are queuing for one table!
