Monuments and sculptures

Despair, Josep Llimona

Despair, Josep Llimona

A girl, slumped to her knees, her hands delicately clasped and her face covered by her mane of hair, rises up in the middle of the pond in the Plaça d"Armes, in Barcelona"s Parc de la Ciutadella. It seems that nothing or no one can console her. Here Despair takes the form of the sculpture of a woman.
MUHBA Temple d'August

Barcelona"s Gothic Quarter you"ll come across one of the city"s best-kept secrets in a building on Carrer Paradís. Inside a small medieval courtyard, the four columns from the Temple of Augustus have survived despite the passing of the centuries. They are more than 2,000 years old, like Barcelona itself.

Pla de l'Os

Pla de l'Os

Thousands of people walk over Joan Miró"s pavement mosaic in the centre of Barcelona"s Rambla.

However, few people know that an important Rambla landmark once stood opposite this site: the famous Boqueria gate.
Arc de Triomf
