I was on my way to Barri Gotic along the waterfront and ran across this large and colorful sculpture. I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to see it but if you're in the neighborhood...why not!

Right on the harbour front... you can't miss it. Big, bold and beautiful. Great for a selfie! Lovely on a sunny day just walk along the front.
