A countermonument proposal

  • L’Atlàntida is an original idea developed  by Jordi Guixe and Nuria Ricart  with the aim to close the circle of symbolism of the statue of the marquis of Comillas, Antonio López López;
  • The anti-slavery countermonument would exhibit the statue under Mediterranean waters collected directly from the Port Vell of Barcelona.



  • The statue was withdrawn in March 2018 following popular claims and a participatory process.

  • Two plaques explain different moments of the history of the square, that keeps the empty plith.
