  1. Botero’s Cat

This sculpture by Fernando Botero was purchased by Barcelona’s city council in 1987, but it was positioned permanently in the Raval district only in 2003: up until then, as cats do, it had wandered the city, in sites at the zoo, then the Olympic stadium, then the Medieval shipyards, and finally settling in the Raval district.

  1. The Garden Maze

The Parc del Laberint d’Horta has a hedge maze, a typical feature of aristocratic gardens in the 19th century. It was planned and developed by the Desvalls family from 1791, and the carefully pruned hedges conceal a route leading to the centre where there is a statue of Eros

  1. Palau de la Música

Hidden inside city you can find the magical Palau de la Música, built by Lluís Domènech I Montaner. Anyone who loves the eccentric architecture of Barcelona is sure to admire the organic shapes, colourful staine glass windouws and fine detailing of this concert hall.
