General Prim - Parc de la Ciutadella

Share

I had the occasion to visit Barcelona a few times during my travels. It's a city I really like for its atmosphere, architecture and culture. It is difficult to get bored taking photos while wandering around the old streets and huge parks.
This shot was taken while visiting the Parc the la Ciutadella with a few friends. Opened in the mid-19th century, it's the most central park in Barcelona and for a long time the only green area inside the city. It hosts a zoo (that hosted the famous albino gorilla Snowflake), a lake, museums, a parliament and a fountain designed by Gaudi.
The statue on the photo is of General Juan Prim, a famous Catalan general and statesman assassinated in 1870. I liked the silhouette against the evening sky.
