How to make a wish near the cat statue in Barcelona
The Raval Cat is one of the main decorations of relatively young Rambla del Raval. You'll see it right away - a huge sculpture weighing two tonnes is difficult to remain unnoticed. Despite its large size, the Raval cat has a very sleek look.

There is a legend that if you rub his nose and make a wish, it will come true. It was invented by the inhabitants of the city, they thought that watching travelers lining up to perform this funny ritual is kinda fun.

How to do?

1. Go to the Rambula del Raval street.
2. Two-ton cat can not remain unnoticed.
3. Scratch the cats nose, so that all your desires come true :)
4. If you do not really believe in such legends, then you can just make a cheerful selfie next to this unusual sculpture and send this photo to your cat-fancied friends :)
