THE (SKATEBOARD) ANGELS OF THE PLAZA
by Gabriel Pernau

It is a peculiar place. In the Plaša dels └ngels two cities meet each other: the modern and cosmopolitan and the popular and multicolour. Hundreds of people of the most different types circulate between the white of the Museum of Contemporary Art and the four-century-old walls of the Convent of the └ngels. But those who seem to most enjoy this new open area in the heart of the Ciutat Vella district are the everpresent skateboarders. They are the angels of the plaza, an open space in the heart of the Raval area, a real lung for the district.
