Plaça Catalunya

Historical Heritage

Next to Plaça de la Font Lluminosa, on the east side, we find Plaça de Catalunya. It was inaugurated in 1994, and a weekly food market takes place on its grounds on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, as well as in Plaça del Gra. The appearance of Plaça Catalunya was radically changed in 2011 with the inauguration of the remodelling work which resulted in the installation of an innovative photovoltaic cover designed by the architect Rafael Cáceres. This new structure has rapidly become a new city icon and a must-see for any visitor.
