Sculptures of the Moll de la Fusta Promenade
The promenade is a wide avenue of palm trees that stretches from the Rambla del Mar Bridge to the Moll d'Espanya pier along the Darsena National yacht harbor.
At the very beginning of the embankment, behind the Port Authority building, the schooner Santa Elualia, the largest exhibit of the Barcelona Maritime Museum, is moored (more details).
Opposite the schooner is a monument to Joan Salvat-Papasseit (1894-1924), Catalan avant-garde poet, author of the"First Manifesto of Catalan Futurism".
A little further on is a steel pedestrian bridge painted bright red. The bridge is adjustable, but it is completely unclear for what purpose. I have seen bridges of this design on the canals of France.
The bridge crosses the Ronda del Litoral expressway and connects the Mole de la Fusta embankment with Columbus Boulevard. Another bridge is visible at the end of the embankment.
Let's go back to the embankment and walk along it for another hundred steps. Here we will see the surreal sculpture "Para" (La Parella). So the Chilean artist Lautaro Díaz Silva (Lautaro Díaz Silva) depicted two lovers contemplating the sea. The figures do not have hands, which is typical of Diaz's statues, but the artist shows that he draws inspiration from classical Greek and Roman sculptures. However, you can see a man's hand gently resting on the girl's shoulder.
At the end of the boardwalk is a metal structure depicting a boat with a wind-blown sail on the crest of a wave. Monument als esportistes de la mar by sculptor Joaquim Ros i Sabaté was installed by the Yacht Captains ' Assembly in 1969.
