Barcelona’s Costumed Street Performers Are Truly Incredible

While walking down Las Ramblas in Barcelona, it’s quite normal to see the head of a chef in a pizza, an angel, a man covered in scrap, a demoness from mythology, a moving skeleton on a bicycle, Galileo Galilei, or a man on a toilet, not to mention a levitating Satan, people coated in mud, a guy who has lost his head, a devil in the trunk, and the Grim Reaper.

Once the site of a monastery and a university, the stretch is now Barcelona’s busking center. Human statues, who patiently transform themselves into mythical creatures or famous figures from history with the help of elaborate makeup and attire, spend hours frozen in place, or break the position to perform for and interact with the gathered crowds.
