Arch of Triumph
This brick arch was designed in the Mudejar style, as the entry gate for the 1888 Expo, by Josep Vilaseca. The coats-of-arms, which represents all the Spanish provinces, were placed around it, with Barcelona's in the middle—the place of honor. On the sides of the arch are four statues of women symbolizing fame. Other stone carvings represent various countries' participation in the Expo, and Barcelona thanking them for their attendance. It is not as grand as the Paris version, perhaps, but still beautiful and worth a visit.
The name comes from the Basílica de Santa Maria del Pi, and from St Josep Oriol, who is buried there.
