Parc de Joan Miró

Park in Montjuïc, Poble Sec & Sant Antoni

This palm-filled park is worth a look for its massive Miró sculpture, Dona i Ocell, which towers above the surrounding concrete. Locals know the park as the Parc de l’Escorxador (Abattoir Park), after the slaughterhouse that once stood here – unsurprisingly given the proximity to the former Les Arenes bullring (now a shopping centre).
