parks   ~  sassy

The Ciutadella Park is 30 hectares of beautiful parklands located in Barcelona’s Gothic quarter. It was originally used as a military citadel built by King Philip V in the 1700s to ward off the rebellious Catalans. Napoleon Bonaparte even kept prisoners behind its fortified walls (more here , wiki info here) Today, various statues and sculptures artfully dot the landscape, such as the popular sassy mammoth pictured here.


  1. Must make a return trip to BCN ~ so many things I missed. I would like to spend a lot of time in this park.

  2. The mammoth is a fun surprise for new park visitors I'm sure :)

  3. from afar it would look real! :D

  4. I think I've seen that photo before but I'm okay with seeing it again. Let's put it this way: it's such a memorable as well as cool sight that I can't help but remember it! :D

    1. Very good visual memory YTSL! I am still sans digital cam, can't decide which one to get, so I have to rely on my archives :)

  5. First I thought it was a real elephant ! Must be nice sitting in this park !

  6. 30 hectares! I am trying to imagine the size....

    Happy weekend Mar!

  7. What an unusual statue to have in the park - a sassy move indeed! A great shot for this week's theme.

    Have a super weekend.

  8. That's sassy!
    I look forward to seeing what you can spook us with next weekend.
    Happy Hunting~
