Although not one of Barcelona's most famous plaza's, Placa San Miguel is home to this absolutely intriguing piece of street art. Although at first glance it looks like the wire from a used bottle of champagne it is in fact a monument to thelCastellers of...More

Very creative representation of the castells (human towers). It encouraged me to read into this more and the history/story behind the towers was very interesting. Not much to look at unless you’re willing to read up on it though.

If you wander somewhat if the gothic Barrio you may pass this art. It is nice but certainly not worthwhile a detour

Well as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and obviously the committee that decided that this modern structure was a perfect choice for this plaza. I'm sorry but I cannot get excited over this work of art and therefore cannot comment...More

Very ugly and not very representative for the castellers world. I could tell you as a casteller de la Vila de Gràcia.

I came across this interesting structure in one of the squares in the Gothic quarter when I was looking for the Tourist Office. It is rather high and not sure what it represents.

It is a very intriguing modern art monument placed in a baroque-gothic surrounding, smack in the mid of the Gothic Quarter, that of course is a bit shocking the first time you see it. Passing again and again near it, one sees that incredibly it...More

I'm not a big fan of modern art, but this is rather interesting piece. Worth seeing, especially since it's in the centre, very near to the main Cathedral. Take a drink and relax in nearby cafes.

Plenty of restaurants around the monument, very nice area. The "kiss burger" next to it has great burgers and beer. Sometimes there are street singers. Nice.

It's cool to see any city with so much street art. This is a cool piece. Reading other reviews makes me think that perhaps I dont understand the story behind it or I may be more impressed. I wouldnt say put it as a destination...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
