Located next to Port Olímpic, there’s a sculpture in Barcelona, already closely linked to the city, and known as Gehry’s Golden Fish. The city commissioned it for the 1992 Olympic Games from the great Canadian architect, Frank O. Gehry, known mostly for the design of buildings such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, or the Marqués de Riscal Vineyard Hotel in the Rioja Alavesa region. The fish in question, located at the beginning of Barcelona’s seafront promenade, is a great iron structure whose golden reflections when the sun hits it have led Barcelona residents to dub it “the Golden Fish”. Since Port Olímpic is a required visit for any tourist in Barcelona, we recommend taking in this original sculpture, which is actually a framework of fine interwoven metallic lines that make up an abstract sculpture. However, the figure of a fish is clearly intuited.
