I have visited Barcelona many times over the last 15 years, but on my last visit I finally got to visit the Parc de la Ciutadella. This is a lovely relaxing green area in Barcelona. Almost like Barcelona's own Hyde Park. So pleased that I finally got to visit it and spend time wandering through it. The Arc de Triumf... More

Best parc in Barcelona with a great fountain, activities and recreational areas. The unique arc de triomphe is at the entrance of the parc. Above all, the fountain was incredibly beautiful, you must see it before you leave Barcelona!

This is a pleasant park right in the heart of the city. The fountains are worth seeing and it's nice to sit down and watch the world go by. Do take care when entering and exiting as there are cycle path running right across the entrance.

Beautiful park to take a break from the city. The lake and the fountain are great for pictures, specially in a sunny day.

This park is the only big park in the city centre, which means it's always packed with people during the high season, which in my opinion is not the best thing if you're looking for some relaxation. The area is very green, but there are not many places to sit down on the grass in the shadow because most of... More

It is a very diverse park, with different areas, even the government building is there, the lake is cool, and the fountain is a picture must. You can do su much there, or just do nothing at all.

We had great time visiting the park. It's big and refreshing. Out of all the parks I visited in Barcelona, this is the one I'd return to. It has a very nice lake with boats for rent and some water birds. A nice Mamouth the kids had great time riding and getting photoed. Nice trails to do some jogging. The... More

What a marvel to behold! It's like walking through a fantasy. Then you see what would be a beautiful photo only to have someone step into the frame and then another and another! That's when I decided to just enjoy the surrounds and admire with my eyes rather than capture everything on film. Perhaps go early in the day? It's... More

A great park with lovely buildings and areas around it. Multiple entrances, one leads to the cultural centre and one to the arc station. Very nice and wide paths so no cycle dodging, flat walk and some lovely well kept areas. I would not say go and visit for an afternoon, but making this parc a walk on your route... More

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighborhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
