Barceloneta beach, above, features the installation L’Estel Ferit (The Wounded Shooting Star) By Rebecca Horn, commissioned for the 1992 Summer Olympics.



Tossa de Mar is a little over an hour drive north of Barcelona. In the 12th century the medieval town was walled off and a castle was built on the highest point of Mt. Guardí.
