The giant fish Oct 21, 2013
Down at the waterfront just before you reach the Olympic Port you see a giant copper structure. It is the giant Peix or fish. The fish is place pretty high on top a scaffolding which support this open structure we see it as we go down to the Olympic Port to have some lunch. We are watching the sculpture against the sun - which isn’t the best way to view this art pieces since it is a bit dark and boring - the fish really has to be view with the sun behind you.

Hence the best way to view the fish is to walk along the beach from Barcelonette in the afternoon sunshine and just look straight down the road - you won’t miss it there is nothing else quite like the fish in Barcelona. It is very shinny and bright when you got the sun behind you.

When you reach the Olympic Port you can catch a metro back to the center of Barcelona or any other place you like to go - this would be a better option than doing the trip in reverse like we did since we had to look back all the time to see the fish when walking towards Barcelonette.
