El Gat del Raval

El Gat del Raval

A cat statue by Fernando Botero[a]. The cat started its life in 1987 in Parc de la Ciutadella[b], but was moved to the Olympic stadium in 1992. From there it was placed in Plaça de Blanquerna[c] where it remained until finally moved to its current place at the south end of Rambla del Raval. Lluís-Anton Baulenas has written a nice account of the cat's life so far in Story of a Fat Cat[d].
