The iconic mosaic benches on Passeig de Gracia are both beautiful and practical. These and the accompanying street lamps were designed by Pere Falqués i Urpí in 1906. They are entirely in keeping with the surrounding modernist buildings by such architects as Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner. They make a welcome, cool spot to rest during a hard day’s busy sight seeing or shopping.
