  • It is the oldest public statue in Barcelona, although it was not always located in this place, but was in the already defunct Passeig de l'Esplanada. It is the work of the sculptor Salvador Gurri, highly sought after in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. It was built between 1797 and 1802 and was part of a set of four, dedicated to mythological characters, one to the sea god Fortis, to a nereida riding on a dolphin, to the nymph Aretusa, but only that of Hercules is the only survivor of that set.

  • Accidentally saw this magnificent statue and fountain of Hercules, strolling after visiting Sagrada Familia on neighbouring streets ... The fountain appeared in the beginning of 19 century, the work of sculptor Salvator Gourri. Composition-the copy of the famous Hercules of Therm Caracalla. Poor Hercules dragged from place to place, until in 1928, he had not stood up here and calmed down. The beautiful statue.
