  • El desconsol is the name given to a white sculpture located in the Ciutadella Park and the center of the pond oval in front of the building that houses the Catalan Parliament. Meant to represent pain, depicted a nude woman curled up on the ground. It is considered the most beautiful sculpture of Catalan modernism, performed by José Limon, but from what I understand is supposed to be a copy. Not being an art expert I assigned an average score, not being capable of a competent assessment. In any case it is a visit that advice because we are in one of the most beautiful parks in Barcelona, where in addition to the sculpture you'll see even more. The photo I am attaching doesn't do justice to the sculpture because taken from an angle not happy (photograph from better perspective was not possible for the backlight)

  • Beatifull park with some pieces of culture. You can have lunch in the centre of the park . The only thing bit dirty around with some rubbish . 
  • For rest of the ride by Barcelona. Seems interesting but less. A little abandoned, it might be better care.
