This statue is of general Joan Prim i Prats and is also located close to the Arc de Triomf.  During the Civil War of 1936-39 the statue was destroyed. After the original model in plaster a new copy was made in 1948 by Frederic Mars. On either side of the base of the statues are reminders of the conquest of Los Costellejos and the withdrawal from Mexico. The heroic stance which the general takes is identical to that of Burenguer.

This statue is of the famous Sant Jordi slaying a dragon. The statue is located at the Placa de Sant Jaume. Sant Jordi was a Roman solider and a Christian Saint. The scene being portrayed is Sant Jordi slaying a dragon, above him there is a niche, inside of which we see three busts. Saint Jordi would be considered legend rather than a hero because of the mythical story. This statue is unique because of its color and because it is from a much earlier time period.

This image shows a bronze statue of Roger de Llúria created by sculptor Josep Reynés in 1885. This sculpture also belongs to the series of 8 sculptures created to showcase Catalan heroes, and is also one of only 3 remaining statues.
