1. Located at Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery, this magnificent sculpture, titled Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El Beso de la Muerte in Spanish), depicts death (in the form of a winged skeleton) planting a kiss on a young man’s forehead. According to the story, in 1930, the Llaudet family was mourning the death of their son and created this sculpture for his tomb. The epitaph bears famous verses by one of Catalan’s greatest poets, Jacint Verdaguer:

    “And his young heart can not help;
    in his veins the blood stops and freezes
    and encouragement lost faith embraces
    fall feeling the kiss of death”
