Last Sunday, the public celebration held to unveil the renovated Mirador de l’Alcalde, which has been restored as part of the urban planning project being carried out in Montjuïc.
The Mirador de l’Alcalde was opened in 1969 by the mayor José María Porcioles, from which you can find a panoramic view of the Port of Barcelona. The floor of the Mirador is a mosaic made from ceramics, iron bits and pieces of glass bottles, a work created by the artist Joan Josep Tharrats. The central feature of the park is the Mirador’s fountain, which was designed by Carles Buigas who also created the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc.
The restoration has been carried out maintaining the original design. The floor and railings have been restored and the public lighting and irrigation facilities have been replaced.
