  • Cat lovers will love it. Non-cat lovers will probably like it. Wonderful thick-neck (however, the Colombian Fernando Botero all the sculptures "inflated") with a bell around his neck stopped in the shade of trees on Rambla Raval. Some magnetism comes from this sculpture. By the way, in the shadow of the cat on a hot day love to rest dogs.

  • A place where you will find several hotels around. You can enjoy drinks also setting under the open sky. Most of the hotels are for Pakistani, Indian and Morocco food on both side of the Plaça.
  • On the Rambla del Raval, the lovely bronze cat with long whiskers "El gato negro" by Fernando Botero stands imposing and plump. This huge sculpture, about 2 meters high and 5 meters long, I recommend to visit not only to appreciate it beauty but also to perform a small lucky ritual "touch the cat's testicles!" If you are in Barcelona, ​​visit this beautiful cat and don't forget to do the superstitious ritual.
