Description

Park is located on two levels. The lower level is directly a park, here you can walk among palm, eucalyptus and pine groves. There are also football pitches. In the XIX century, on the site of the current park of Joan Miro or Parque de l’Escoshador (Parc de Joan Miro / Parc de l’Escoshador) there was a slaughterhouse. The park was founded in the 80s of the twentieth century. The main attraction of the upper level is the sculpture of Joan Miro "The Woman and the Bird". The height of the sculpture is 22 meters. The sculpture is decorated with colorful tiles, which are beautifully reflected in the water surface. The sculpture "Woman and the Bird" was opened in 1983 (according to other sources - in 1982). This is one of the latest works of Joan Miro. Joan Artigas carried out the work of covering the sculpture with blue, red, green, yellow tiles, which are beautifully reflected in the water surface. The Woman and the Bird is one of the last three works of the sculptor, which were entrusted to him and were to become a greeting and a visiting card for the guests of Barcelona. Sculptures should be visible from the air, sea and land. The statue coped with its task, but Miro himself was no longer able to attend its opening, as he was seriously ill and soon died. Joan Miro - Catalan painter, sculptor and graphic artist. His works are surrealistic, they resemble both children's drawings, and the vague outlines of objects in which we see real images. The park is located near the Plaza of Spain, the Magic Fountain and the Fairgrounds. It is also distinguished from other parks of Barcelona by the fact that trees are planted more intensely here.
