One of the things I love about the Mediterranean countries are the shady squares where you can relax and have a coffee or an aperitif. Early February in Barcelona wasn’t quite as warm (or sunny) as we hoped, so we didn’t spend as much time sitting outdoors as we would have liked but we did walk a lot. In Catalan, which is the language spoken by a large majority of the people in Barcelona, the term is plaça which becomes places in the plural.
