There's not much to mention about this statue. It is just a very short walk from the Aquarium and is as modern as Barcelona is to say the least. It is called the Barcelona Head as is obvious from the picture. It is an unmistakable creation of Roy Liechtenstein the American pop-artist. According to his website, it was created in 1992.
On the main harbour, just when the Ramblas end, you will find this metallic tower that is a part of the aerial transport that goes from St. Sebastian Beach to Montjuic.
You will see the little cabins passing over the harbour on their way up to the hill. From these cabins you can have a wonderful view of all Barcelona.
It looked nice from the outside, so I took a pic of it. I didn't stop for a cup of coffee though. It was a very hot day!
When you see this cafe, it's also the end of Moll de la Fusta walk. If you are hungry, keep walking head a little and go for the direction of the Museum of History and you'll find many nice restaurants there (according to the lady of the tourist info). Okay, this ends the half day trip in BCN. I hope you enjoy it.
A beatiful walk in Barcelona, from time to time I walk this way and I feel more lively.
I start in Catalonia Square (Plaça Catalunya), going down les Rambles to Colom. It´s nice to see les Rambles, you can go 1000 days and each day are diffrent, try it!
From Colom I go to the Port Vell (Old Port) through Moll de la fusta (a splendid promenade). Then Mirador del Port Vell, Plaça de l´Odissea, Rambla del Mar and Colom.
We are in les Rambles again, now we can back to Plaça Catalunya through: Plaça del Teatre, Carrer Escudellers, Carrer del Vidre, Plaça Reial, Carrer Ferran, Plaça Sant Jaume, Carrer del Bisbe, Catedral, Portal de l´Angel and Plaça Catalunya.
It can take half day depending on your stops.
When you see this statue, your La Rambla Walk has hit the end. If you still feel energetic, turn left at the end (the harbor), and keep walking on " Moll de la Fusta"--a nice walk along the harbor.
This is a sculpture made by the Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein in 1992 and called 'Barcelona Head'. It is placed in the Moll de la Fusta in the Port.
