Monuments and sculptures

Topos, Eduardo Chillida

Topos, Eduardo Chillida

At one end of the Plaça del Rei, a monument breaks with the prevailing Gothic style of this area. A robust metal structure seems out of keeping with its surroundings while fitting in perfectly. Topos V is a sculpture that acts as a bridge between the Middle Ages and the modern era.
The Fossar de les Moreres

The Fossar de les Moreres

The Fossar de les Moreres is a place of great symbolic significance where the weight of history takes centre stage. Here, right in the centre of the Born neighbourhood, was the site of the graveyard for the fallen during the 1714 Siege of Barcelona. A monument stands on the site as a reminder. The place sometimes goes unnoticed by visitors. For the Catalans, the fossar is more than a memory. It is a homage.
Barcelona Face, Roy Lichtenstein

Barcelona Face, Roy Lichtenstein

The colour and size of the sculpture Barcelona Face make it impossible to miss. Everyone has their own opinion about this piece of public art that has decorated one end of Barcelona"s Port Vell since the Olympic era, and blends in with the maritime past and present of one of the city"s main leisure areas.
The lady with the umbrella

The lady with the umbrella

The lady with the umbrella is a symbol of the Parc de la Ciutadella and Barcelona Zoo. For many, it also represents a childhood memory of the most beautiful Barcelona lady of them all. Few people can fail to be captivated when they look at this enigmatic, anonymous figure in her period costume who delicately puts out her hand?.

Onades (Waves), Andreu Alfaro

These waves extend a welcome and bid farewell to those arriving in or leaving the city by sea. They decorate one end of the Plaça del Carbó, the entrance to the harbour breakwater. The work impresses us with its sheer size and flexible forms.
