House Of Black Cats Aug 19, 2012
So, basically it's two statues of cats. But as I love cats, and especially black cats, I think this is one (or two, however you want to count it) of the best statues I've seen. It was a bit of a lucky strike that I ended up seeing this though. There is a story behind these statues, which I recommend for you to find out if you're going there. There use to be four statues, I heard one tourist guide saying, but unfortunately I didn't hear why the two were removed.
They are on the top of a yellow building (can't remember what it is called) and you might miss them if you don't know to look up. They're on the next street of the Powder Tower and next to a market place, which might be easier for you to find.
The statues look awesome and are worth seeing. What I do wish is that there would be some info board telling the meaning of these statues. Maybe they could put it up on the wall of the building or something?
