Monuments and sculptures

Arc de Triomf

Arc de Triomf

In 1888 Barcelona hosted the Universal Exhibition. The Arc de Triomf was built as the gateway to the fair which was held in the Parc de la Ciutadella. The monument is classical in shape and proportions and features ground-breaking sculptural and decorative finishes replete with symbolism. It has become one of the city"s iconic landmarks.
Woman and Bird, Joan Miró

Woman and Bird, Joan Miró

A giant form protrudes from one end of the Parc de Joan Miró in Barcelona. It is the sculpture Woman and Bird by the Barcelona-born artist Joan Miró. With a little imagination we can make out the female form surmounted by a bird in this imposing, brightly coloured work. The sculpture is one of Barcelona"s iconic artistic landmarks.
Fallen Sky, Beverly Pepper

Fallen Sky, Beverly Pepper

A fallen sky is reflected in the undulating forms emerging from the grass in Barcelona"s Parc de l"Estació del Nord, in a subtle interplay with the natural surface. This is the sculptural ensemble designed by Beverly Pepper to decorate the new park laid out on the site of a disused railway station.
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?
Peix (Fish), Frank Gehry

Peix (Fish), Frank Gehry

This giant goldfish has become one of the symbols of post-Olympic Barcelona and looks as if it is bobbing along on the waters of the Mediterranean. The sunlight is reflected in the scales of this sculpture that presides over the waterfront of the Olympic Marina and Barcelona"s beaches.
