0 Barcelona: Around Town and Santa Maria del Mar

 I'll be honest, I'm terrible about remembering the names and locations of the things I photograph.  
I often wish my camera had a "notes" section, that allowed a few characters noted with each image. Sure, I could just be more organized and have notes in hand, but that's just too logical.
I've employed the magic that is Google, and done my best.

This statue was in a small green space in the Tetuan roundabout called Jardins del Doctor Robert.

 Horse and boy statue in Placa de Catalunya.

 Marc, a sculpture by Robert Llimós, near Port Olímpic.

 This tile-art was on an outer wall... somewhere.  Sorry.

 Christopher Columbus statue in harbor.

 Located in the roundabout in Placa de Espanya, this fountain and statues are a joint effort of Josep Maria Jujol and Miquel Blay.

 I can't find verifiable information on this sculpture online.  The closest information that I can find is that it's most likely in honor of Narcís Monturiol, the inventor of the submarine.

 This terrible picture is of an arc with an eternal flame at the tip stands in Placa de Fosser de les Moreres in honor of those who died in the Spanish Civil War.

 Santa Maria del Mar was built in the mid-14th century and stands just down the street from Museu Picasso, so it's conveniently located for a stop-in.

 The pews feature rose-window-like cutouts.
