The Eight-Ton Cat

Barcelona, Spain


Ksu Zavyalova

At the very beginning of Rambla de Raval, you'll see a giant eight-ton statue of a cat with a pleasant smile. This cat is called Botero or Ravaleando, the latter being a derivation from the name of the district. Botero Cat is one of the iconic strongly-built, huge sculptures by Fernando Botero, placed all over the world. This copper cat of the size of a small house was the artist's gift to the city. While his sculptures receive mixed response from people around the world, Barcelonians definitely enjoyed this piece of art.
