In Ramelleres street there is a revolving window known as the orphans hole. The single mothers were very badly considered, for that they abandoned their kids in that hole to the care of the nuns.

If you go by a walk in the Montjuic cemetery you can find big artworks that only a few people know. It is divided in 14 tours which receive various names: Santa Eulalia, San Pedro, Santa María, San Jaime, etc.
In its beginnings, the post office worked very bad in Barcelona, for that there is a mock sculpture with a turtle and swallows. This sculpture means that the post service should go as fast as the swallows but in reality it went as slow as the turtle.
