5 important landmarks in Barcelona

1) El Peix – Frank Gehry

This work of art by Canadian-born American architect Frank Gehry is an undisputed highlight of Barceloneta Beach. The gilded stainless steel strips catch the sunlight and transform it into a golden sheen, gliding over the elegant lines of this non-descript peix (fish), created in 1992.
