What people are saying:

El Beso, "The Kiss." Located in the alley opposite the cathedral in the old town of Barcelona. #网红打卡点 This kissing wall was built to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the fall of Catalonia in the Spanish War of Succession on September 11, 1714. Photographer Joan Foncaverta JOAN FONCUBERTA collaborated with Catalan newspaper to create a mural with photos provided by readers. There are 4,000 tiles in this wall, distributed in 50 rows, with 80 tiles in each row. Together they form the image of kissing lips. It was installed in the private garden of nearby Isidre Nonell. Although in principle it should be a short-lived exhibit, the city council decided to keep it here forever. The mural was opened on July 3, 2014 by the mayor of Barcelona Xavier Trias.
