Plaça de Mossèn Jacint Verdaguer - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This panorama was taken at the edge of the junction on which the monument to Mossèn Jacint Verdaguer stands. I tried to get as close to the monument as possible without being run over. The result is a panoramic image that captures most of the monument and the surrounding buildings.
