Considered the heart of the city, this large circular plaza is where the old city and the 19th-century extension meet. Since its last renovation in 1929, it has also been the crossroads of the Metro system. Shoppers flock to a large branch of the Spanish department store El Corte Inglés, and a recent addition grabbed a prime location on the busy square: the Apple Store. Plaça de Catalunya is also known for its fountains. Legend says that anyone who drinks from the Font de Canaletes will inevitably return to Barcelona.
