Barcelona. The promenade Moll de la Fusta
Visited the schooner "Santa Eulalia", the largest exhibit of Maritime Museum of Barcelona, I continued to walk along promenade moll de La fusta. Opposite the schooner can be seen monument to Juan Salvato-Papasseit, map), Catalan poet of the avant-garde, the author of "the First Catalan Manifesto of futurism".
A little further is a steel pedestrian bridge over a highway, it was built for the Olympics games 2012.
It is unclear why the construction is made as drawbridge. The same bridges I have seen on the canals in France.
Over the bulding's roofs you can see the figure of the virgin Mary that tops the dome of the Church of La mercè (Basílica de la Mare de Déu de la Mercè).
The Shrimp is the work of sculptor Javier Mariscal, created in 1989, the Symbol of the restaurant, which was in this place. During the reconstruction of the waterfront restaurant was demolished, but beloved by the people of Barcelona and tourists brand immortalized in this form.
Plaza Antonio Lopez. The monument the "Head of Barcelona” (El Cap de Barcelona map). Roy Lichtenstein, a famous american pop art artist made this miracle of concrete, covered with ceramic tiles in 1982.
From the "Head" you can take a look at the entire panorama of Old Port (Port Vell).
On the other side of the square attracted the attention of the tower building of the Central Telegraph.
Most offices of National postal service in Spain (Sociedad Estatal de Correos y Telégrafos, or simple "Correos") are the architectural masterpieces.
To the Right of the Telegraph - house, just decorated with a tower.
Here I turned in the direction of Barceloneta is one of the most interesting quarters of the Barcelona.
