" Plaza de A. Garriga I Bachs "

From Plaça Nova, head towards Pl. de Garriga i Bachs.

It is a small quiet plaza where you'd find five heroic statues of 1809, dedicated to them.

According to a travel book :
they were those who attempted to take Monjüic Castle from
the Napoleonic occupiers; three hid in the cathedral organ for days before
they were caught and hanged.
In this dusty plaça, were also a row of charming sepia painted tile works.

You could catch street performers during the night, but with not much ample lighting,
this street can be quite dark though.
