Submarine Sculpture in honor of inventor Narcis Monturiol
We stumbled across this sculpture whilst walking to Pedrera. It is in honor of Narcis Monturiol, the visionary Catalan inventor of a submarine launched in 1859. When it was destroyed in a collision, he invented a bigger one, this time powered by an internal combustion engine. Sadly for him, he was not able to go into mass production and sell submarines. He died a broken man. He is however something of a hero to the Catalans.
