Parabola Monument in Barcelona

The Fossar de les Moreres (Moreres Cemetery) is a memorial plaza in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain), adjacent to the basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. The plaza was built over a cemetery where defenders of the city were buried following the Siege of Barcelona at the end of the War of the Spanish Succession in 1714.

The plaza retains its everyday use as a public space, but also prominently features a memorial to the fallen Catalans of the war, with a torch of eternal flame and a heroic poem by Frederic Soler, "El Fossar de les Moreres". On 11th September, in this place, the Catalan people celebrate their National Day. This historical date refers back to September 11 in 1714, when Barcelona, following a 13-month siege, surrendered to the Castilian and French soldiers.
