Plaça Reial (In Castellano Plaza Real, meaning “Royal Plaza”) is a square in the Barri Gòtic, situated next to La Rambla. Around 19th century designed by Francesc Molina this Plaça was imagined to be one of the most luxurious with the purpose of exalting the monarchy. But, Gaudi also had his impact in the construction of Plaça. Namely, the laterns on Plaça were designed by Antoni himself.
Nowdays, it is very popular tourist attraction/destination especially during nights because it is filled with bars, restaurants and the most visited clubs here in Barcelona.
The fountain with its statue in the center of the square represents three Graces. On both sides of the fountain there are two lampposts also made by Antoni Gaudí, which are culminated by a winged helmet and a dragon. The surrounding palm trees give the plaça a cozy Mediterranean atmosphere.
Also, it is very popular outdoor venue where lots of concerts, celebrations and gatherings are being held.
