Covering an area the size of four city blocks, the old slaughterhouse ('escorxador') was demolished in 1979 to provide some much-needed parkland, although there’s little greenery. The rows of palms and pines are dwarfed by Miró’s sculpture 'Dona i Ocell' ('Woman and Bird') getting its feet wet in a cement lake; there’s also a good playground for small kids.
