If you are in Barcelona, the entertainment center of EU, you are not going to make a visit to this park (you'd be a fool to do so) as it's nothing special comparing what Barcelona has to offer. However, if you are close to it, near by it, or could pass through it you must do so! It's a really... More

This park was really beautiful and is a must visit if you are in Barcelona. Lots of statues, a zoo at the far end and a building with a gold horse and carriage on the top, which is surrounded by fountains! Unfortunately, for our visit the other lake part had been emptied so we were not able to take a... More

So the park is lovely, a little dry with dust flying up from the paths. About five minutes into the walk, we were asked whether we would like to donate money to provide for a handicap ramp up to a garden villa. After handing a few euros over, we were asked to sign a clipboard paper and show ID for... More

We loved the parc for its shadow, the lake, beautiful nature and architectural constructions. You can rent a boat and swim across the lake, or just walk around the place to enjoy its beauty.

The park is full of people on Sunday playing, walking, dancing and enjoying the sun. Great place to let your kid run around.

You will love the fountain the park has, one of the most impressive ones I saw in Europe. You will also find a relaxing park to sit and take a break.

Definitely worth visiting. Fountains and sculptures are truly beautiful. Set in nice surroundings a relaxing walk and a laze in the sun was perfect

We thought of going to a nice parc where we can hang out, chill and do some sports (we are used to parcs like the vondelpark in amsterdam and all of the parcs in utrecht). Nothing of that all was possible. The parc is very very crowdy, a lot of groups walking around, most of the greenery you're not allowed... More

This park was so beautiful. Lots to walk around to see and well kept. The fountain is stunning! There is a zoo at the other end (you have to pay to enter...we didn't go in but it looked as if it had a super variety of animals in it!)

Parc de la Ciutadella is beautiful park in the heart of Barcelona. It is home of Zoo, lake and excellent fountain with cascades. It is a place for a nice walk, place to read a book, or even play some sports in the green areas. There is also quite large playground for children. As we have visited this place in... 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.
