Plaça Sant Vicenç de Sarrià, Barcelona: An Illustrious Biker
Not very far away from the spot where I took the graffiti pictures at carrer Cornet i Mas there is Plaça Sant Vicenç de Sarrià, a small square protected by the shade of platane trees.
In the center, a statue like any other. But wait, what's that he is wearing on the head?.Someone took the trouble of climbing the sculpture and disguised it with this bike helmet.
Sant Vicenç is the patron of the villa of Sarria. In 1939, during the civil war the statue was beheaded and later restored. As you see its future is still at stake.
