Monuments and sculptures

L'Estel ferit, (The Wounded Shooting Star), Rebecca Horn

L'Estel ferit, (The Wounded Shooting Star), Rebecca Horn

The sculpture L’Estel Ferit (The Wounded Shooting Star) consists of four twisted cubes, stacked seemingly at random. Most people refer to this popular landmark as “the cubes”, and it is a clear reflection of Barcelona’s penchant for ground-breaking art during the Olympic period. However, its symbolism is inextricably linked to the past of the Barceloneta district.
Cat, Fernando Botero

Cat, Fernando Botero

A true symbol of Barcelona and the Raval neighbourhood. He seems to feel comfortable here at the end of the avenue in this neighbourhood, after spending 15 years looking for a home. Botero’s Cat is greeted with a smile by everyone. He only has one competitor: the horse by the same artist.
Barcino, by Joan Brossa

Barcino, by Joan Brossa

This visual poem by Joan Brossa stands just in front of Barcelona’s Roman wall, where the aqueduct once entered the city. This curious sculpture, which blends in perfectly with the city’s most ancient stones, spells out the word Barcino, the Roman name of Barcelona, and is the artist’s tribute to the ancient colony.
Canaletes Fountain

Canaletes Fountain

The fountain is one of the symbols of Barcelona, a meeting place for locals and visitors alike where people also flock to celebrate the victories of the Catalan team, Futbol Club Barcelona, Barça. The Canaletes Fountain has become one of Barcelona’s most visited landmarks. It also conceals a history that is closely associated with the old town’s water supply.
Mirador de Colom

Mirador de Colom

The Columbus Monument, stands at the end of Barcelona’s Rambla, near the sea. Take the lift inside the column to the viewing gallery at the top, 60 metres above the ground.
