Public Nudism in Barcelona

Those who have visited Barcelona have no doubt seen some of the main tourist attractions here: Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, the Picasso Museum, the Ramblas and so on. However, they may not have seen one of the “attractions” lesser known to visitors. He is a new attraction in Barcelona and is gaining more and more popularity each year.

Barcelona is the only major city and, most likely, the only place in the world where one can witness a man in his sixties strolling down the main strip of a city´s centre (the Ramblas) completely nude! It is a shocking sight for many as people often don´t realise that this gentleman is actually naked until he is very, very close. The gentleman has a swimming costume tattooed onto his body and it is not until one is within a close distance to the gentleman and that the finer details of his tattoo are revealed, that it is realised that he has no clothes on!

There are laws in place (or not in place) that give the people of Catalonia freedom and the right to practice and express nudism in public places. Consequently, crowds stop, gather and watch this man go about his daily business like it is completely normal to be walking down the most popular strip of one of the most popular cities in the world naked!

Has anybody sighted this man recently???
