The Plaça de Sant Jaume is a square at the center of Barcelona's Old City, and the administrative heart of both the city and surrounding Catalonia. It's located at the former center of the Roman city of Barcino, where its main streets, the Cardo (modern day Llibreteria and Call streets) and Decumanus (now the streets of Bisbe/Ciutat/Regomir), crossed. At this junction there was the forum and the Temple of Augustus, of which four columns are preserved on top of Mont Tàber, found at the adjacent Paradís Street. Among many significant historical events which took place here, the proclamation of the Catalan State happened here in 1931, and the Sunday tradition of performing Catalan dances here still holds strong today.
