Statues in La Rambla Street, Barcelona

Visiting Barcelona last year, I was astonished at the site of numerous live statues at the main landmark street La Rambla. It is aproximately 1.3 km long, in the middles is a pedestrian zone, which ends at the Christopher Columbus monument at Port Vell, Barcelona's port.



Walking down this main street anyone can see various performers posing as human statues. These street statues can get pretty imaginative, ranging from celebrities, mythical, historical characters and also imaginary figures. They stand on small boxes or platforms, wave or wink at the pedestrians (mainly tourists) and put up a small show for a tip. So if anyone visits La Rambla have a lot of change in order to give them something for their effort!
