When Barcelona presented itself to the world for the Summer Olympic Games in 1992, new buildings and structures appeared, but of course also a lot of art. Among the most obvious sculptures is the Peix (Catalan for fish) by Canadian artist Frank Gehry. Its sun-reflecting metal structure makes it easily visible from distance. It sits on the Olympic Port Building in front of a big skyscraper. Materials used are steel, stone and glass.

Address: Metro: Barceloneta, Ciutadella/Villa Olimpica
Directions: Barceloneta Beach, around 20 min. walk away from the Columbus Monument at the ramblas
