Statue of count Ramon Berenguer III by sculptor Josep Llimona i Bruguera installed in 1888. Count is considered a collector of Catalan lands. He gained power almost in accordance with the plot of Shakespeare's Hamlet. His father Berenguer II was killed on a hunting trip just after his birth. The twin uncle ascended to the throne (here Shakespeare's fantasy is inferior to the Barcelona story). After many years of rule, the uncle was accused of murdering his brother by the Castilian king and lost a court battle. When his uncle went as a pilgrim to the Holy land in Jerusalem, he perished there. Here's a bit of Walter Scott. Ramon Berenguer III ascended the throne. He was constantly at war with someone, but he collected land not so much by conquests as by the successful marriages of his children.

This monument stands in tribute to Ramon Berenguer III, also known by his sobriquet, the great. His chief legacy was to the defeats of the Almoravid moors attempts to expand further north, as well has expanding his own realm.

The monument is an equestrian statue of the Count of Barcelona, calming sitting on his horse in an almost portrait like pose. It's well sculpted statue with the artist portraying the count at his most regal. Worth taking a look if you're heading to the PLaza that bears his name.

The equestrian statue of the Count of Barcelona is the focal point in Plaza de Ramon Berenguer within the Gothic Quarter. This imposing statue is surrounded by ancient buildings and is worth a stopover if you are nearby.
