Love this sculpture with its playful atmosphere. Great spot to take pictures to send home and gives the area a joyous feeling often absent in other places. The art scene is an important part of the city and this should be viewed by all art...More
Ran across “el Gato de Botero” while wandering around. The neighborhood does feel a bit sketchy but safe enough in daylight hours.
The giant black cat appears to be cast in bronze with cartoonish features. An endearing statue to any feline fans. Bright side :...More
An adorable statue of a giant cat. He’s cute, claimable and photogenic. What’s not to enjoy? The area is nice as well and only 5/10 minutes gentle stroll from the Ramblas. The “square”is surrounded by affordable and serviceable cafes, they are a la carts dining...More
Botero's is worth a look see. Down some strange little alley way you come out into a apartment park square and there he is. He isn't ferral he has a bell and a collar. He's large and truly a statement. Where would you out him...More

I mean, you kind of know what to expect based on the picture, but this isn't really an attraction or thing to do. If you're already on this strip to eat or take a stroll, sure, stop by like we did and get a quick...More
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
