      Plaça de Sant Just Details

      Barcelona is Spain's second largest city and the Gothic quarter is where the travelers go to really enjoy it. This old quarter has become part of the city's new grid lined street system, making it easier to get around by foot. Here you can also find the Church 'Saints Just & Pastor', one of the city's oldest Christian churches. The Gothic fountain was built in 1367 by the patrician Joan Fiveller, then Chief Minister of the city administration. The fountain in the square bears an image of St. Just, and the city and sovereign count-kings' coats of arms, along with a pair of falcons. The excellent entryway and courtyard to the left of Carrer Bisbe Caçador is the Palau Moixó, the town house of an important early Barcelona family; down Carrer Bisbe Caçador are the Acadèmia de Bones Lletres, the Catalan Academy of Arts and Letters. For a night out, you need only walk to the Gothic district. For shopping, you've found yourself in one of the top trade towns of the Mediterranean.
