'Elogio del Agua'
Looking down onto the claw from the rim of the park

Parc de la Creueta del Coll[1] is a park in the Gràcia and Horta districts of Barcelona, Spain. The park was created from an abandoned quarry as part of the nou urbanisme developments during the Olympics by architects Martorell and Mackay.[2] Today it's distinctly run-down and scruffy.

The park contains the scultpture 'Elogio del Agua', by Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida, a massive concrete claw suspended by steel cables above a flooded quarry.

Another steel sculpture, 'Escultura' by Ellsworth Kelly is near the entrance gate.
