The monumental fountain that rises up in the centre of the Plaça Espanya is one of the iconic images of this part of Barcelona.

This sculptural ensemble marks the gateway to the avenue leading to the grounds of the 1929 International Exhibition.

Mural de les Olles (Pot Mural), Frederic Amat

Mural de les Olles (Pot Mural), Frederic Amat

1,500 ceramic pots hang from a wall. They look as if they might fall to the ground at any moment. The originality and profound symbolism of this mural make it a unique decorative work in the centre of the performing arts complex, the Ciutat del Teatre. As people stop in front of it they wonder what painful past these ceramic pieces have endured?
Montjuïc Cemetery

Montjuïc Cemetery

A visit to a cemetery is always a moving experience. A stroll through Montjuïc Cemetery is like walking through a miniature city: the city of the dead and silence. Winding up the hillside, overlooking the sea, this major necropolis of Barcelona contains valuable examples of funerary art and the only collection of hearses in Europe.
