In a stylized arch, izvajannoj directly in the wall located here, sacral, we see the bronze figures of five men, over which the barelefnom performance soar two angels. History of the monument very interesting: in the year 1809 French attempt was suppressed the revolt of the Catalans against the occupiers. 3 June of the same year, five leaders of the uprising (military, two civilians and two priests) were executed on the Esplanade of the Barcelona Citadel. After 24 days were sentenced to death and executed three of the most active rebel. After the French left Barcelona as a sign of gratitude and admiration for the courage of the executed, the idea of installing them. The idea of "soared in the air more than a hundred years and only 1929 year has become tangible traits is exactly in this area was opened by the architect Pere Benaven de Barberà (Pere Benavent de Barberà), which planned to install a bronze composition the dead rebels. The authorship of the sculpture itself is owned by the local master Josep Llimone (Josep Llimona). For some unknown reason to me instead of eight executed final version installed already in 1941 year, captured only five heroes. A bas-relief with the Angels is the work of the Catalan sculptor Vicente Navarro (Vicente Navarro).
