If you walk along the Barcelona beach you'll inevitably come to this weird and wonderful sculpture! It's meant to be a golden fish, which to honest I didn't initially realise, I just thought it looked pretty cool. It was built for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics by the artist Frank Gehry. There are many other attractions worth visiting nearby, such as the Olympic Village and Barcelona. The area around the sculpture has a nice relaxed vibe in the summer, and you'll come across many people skateboarding and rollerblading.

This fish is undoubtedly a point of reference if you are in the area of Barceloneta. It is located on the seafront, very close to the casino and it is simply impossible to go unnoticed. Gilded, shiny and colorful is a lovely structure. It was built for the 1992 Olympic Games with the intention of revaluing the Barceloneta neighborhood. He did it.

Undoubtedly a monumental sculpture of the genius of Gehry. Since it was installed, for the Olympic Games of the year 92, the work has become an icon of the Barceloneta area. It is located where the most popular coastal area ends, just where another series of buildings characteristic of the city's skyline are grouped (the legendary Mapfre Tower was built just outside). The work is huge. A steel representation of a beautiful fish, which seems ready to jump into the water. I love to appreciate it from afar when I take walks on the beach!
