ART ON DIAGONAL

Les Corts sculpture route

Gran Via Diagonal, Argüelles Avenue, Catorze d’Abril Avenue, Generalísimo Francisco Franco Avenue and simply Diagonal Avenue… Various names have been given to the street designed by Ildefons Cerdà in the urban plan he drew up in 1860 to connect points far from the city and the Barcelona plain, beyond the grid layout of the Eixample. It is the largest of the three diagonal streets he planned – over 11 kilometres long – and presently connects the coastline, at the Fòrum, with Barcelona’s boundaries, in the Les Corts district.
