The Eiffel Tower was once abandoned by Barcelonans when it was intended to be built here. But if it's really built here, it really doesn't work. Beauty, next to the magic fountain. The landmark buildings here are a pair of brick-red square pillars of Venice Tower and four huge Ionian stone pillars, standing upright on both sides of Queen Christina Avenue. Up the stairs are the Catalonia National Gallery of Art and the National Palace, so there are a lot of local students here.
