It was a hot day, a lot of people, but it was a nice trip anyway. Very beautiful sculptures. Very large park. Very green.

A beautiful setting to rest in while you are walking around the city. Cascada monumental is quite nice and offers good photo opportunities. 4/5 stars because the park is mostly unpaved.

We spent some hours at this park, it's so big and cool, with a great fount and monuments. It was sunday, it was really full, with many musics and dancies (Spanish, oriental and african)...We loved it!

In a city that is otherwise very building-dense at its heart, you don't have to go far to feel like you're in a different world with a visit to these public gardens. The fountain is spectacular, and the park has a very relaxed feel.

Instead of sitting at the beach (10 people per m³) with a good book, we went here. Beautiful, tranquil yet 'alive' park where you could stay the whole day.

This park is a "working" park - that is to say, people really use it. On weekends you will see birthday parties and other events being celebrated there. There is a little pond with rowboats for rent cheap (€5) and lots of interesting buildings, museums and such to see, but the best are the fountains - wonderful because there is... More

Also known as city park, Parc de la Ciutadella is a great park close to Arc de Triomf. It's a big park including a fountain. You can walk around the park and enjoy the beauty. There are activities like boating etc also available.

The park has a beautiful fountain that is worth visiting and there are lovely statues all around the park. If you are planning to see the Arc de Trionf, make sure to see the park as well since they are right beside each other

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.
