An important meeting point
The square has witnessed numerous historic events throughout its existence and nowadays, the plaza houses several concerts, exhibitions and protests. It is also where FC Barcelona fans celebrate the team’s victories.
The surroundings of Plaça Sant Jaume are packed with interesting things to see and charming narrow and winding alleyways to explore. One of the best streets in our opinion is the Carrer del Bisbe that connects Plaça Sant Jaume with the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia.
