Nadal Pharmacy (La Rambla, 121), Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. 1850. The most famous of Barcelona’s old-fashioned pharmacies.

Fresh-eyed travellers to Barcelona can sometimes have the impression that the city is a basket of hidden treasures, where everyday twists and turns can lead you down hidden pathways and into secret corners of the city. One of our favourite quotidian marvels of Barcelona is the city’s old-fashioned pharmacies, many of which date back to the Art Nouveau period.

Plaza Real (meaning “Royal Plaza”) is a square in the Barri Gòtic of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It lies next to La Rambla and constitutes a well-known touristic attraction, especially at night. On the plaza are a large number of restaurants and some of the city’s most famous nightclubs including Sidecar, Jamboree or Karma. It is also known for its many outdoor venues and is a popular meeting place during the summer and the annual La Mercè festival in September, when open air concerts take place, and during other celebrations such as New Year’s Eve, often being very crowded. 

The Plaça Reial was designed by Francesc Daniel Molina i Casamajó in the 19th century. The square is twinned with Plaza Garibaldi, in Mexico City. The lanterns there were designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The square is the site of the Hotel Roma Reial and club.
