  Plaša d'Armes
by seamandrew

Located just south of the big lake in Parc de la Cuitadella is the Plaša d'Armes. Here one finds a serene oval formal garden which was designed by the French landscape Architect J.C.N. Forestier. The statue in the small lake is "El Desconosol", one of Catalan sculptor Josep Llimona's most highly regarded pieces (I personally didn't think much of it). However, the Plaša d'Armes is certainly worth seeing.

Address: Avingudade del MarquŔs de l'Argentera
Directions: On the edge of Ribera district. Near Barri Gothic, Cathedral Seu and Port Vell.
