Gratis in Barcelona… Fernando Botero Cat by Bed and Breakfast in Barcelona

Botero’s cat is a sculpture made by the Colombian artist Fernando Botero that you can
find at the end of La Rambla del Raval. It was installed in the
Raval Quarter
in 2004 but before finding a place in this promenade, it had been installed in other parts of Barcelona. It was bought in 1987 and -amongst others- lived a while some time in the
Ciutadella Park. The cat moved at least four times, maybe that’s why he looks a bit tired maybe?

The sculpture is a large and fat cat, built in bronze. It weighs more than 2 tons and measures 7 meters long by 2.50 meters high, not a cat that is easily bypassed. The design lines
clearly follow the round and voluptuous style of the famous painter and sculptor Fernando Botero.

According to the urban legend -and mandatory to try- you will visit Barcelona again in the future if… you touch his balls. We, Barcelona residents, like to believe that for this
reason his intimate parts shine more than any other part of the sculpture! We encourage you to rub them with passion…. or would you like to leave us forever?
