The Hole of Shame

There is a square near our flat which has a very sordid past with the government of Barcelona.  This is fascinating article about it.  

For my purposes, though, it is a place where a very different side of Barcelona can be seen.  On the weekends, it is bustling with activity.  Just walking a few hundred yards into this square removes you from the tourist-heavy Borne and into a much more local environment.  It is yet another example of Barcelona trying to preserve its own culture.
