Girona, Spain

The smallest square in Europe, and possibly in the whole world, is the Plaça dels Raïms, in Girona, Catalonia.

According to Medieval texts, this square used to be a street, broad enough for carriages to go through. But with the years, houses were built and closed the space, creating the little Plaça dels Raïms (Square of the Grapes).

There’s a little “secret exit” through a shop, that was designed for the lovers who met there in secret.
