Lovely park to wander around, with fountains and a boating lake. It is also directly next to the zoo. We had a nice afternoon stroll around the park, perfect location to sit and relax for an hour or so, maybe even take a picnic?

The Ciutadella park in Barcelona is very pleasant and very well kept. It is ideal for a leisurely stroll or even to spend a couple hours sitting in the grass. There are vendors proposing various services, drinks and foods.

This is one of my favorite places in BCN - so much is going on there - people doing acro-yoga, corde lisse, tightrope walking, or just singing-dancing-drinking-picknicking and just having a good time. PS be very careful not to be too taken away by all this craziness or your precious belongings will be taken away, too!

Barcelona in general made some life changing impression on me, walking around here makes you feel like your creativity is important and any type of art in life makes it just better. Ciutadella shocked me at first, I was completely surprized with this golden horses reaching out from above the trees! There is so many things happening; I had great... More

This was a wonderful park. sunbathed on the grass listening to some lovely combination of guitar/violin/samba drum and singing near by. A really nice fountain and small lake where can take a little rowing boat out. Not a massive part but just very sweet to walk through, and a nice dynamic atmosphere. Would recommend walking through or spending some time... More

This is one of the most amazing places to spend the day in Barcelona. I explored on a bicycle which made it all the more fun. Grab lunch from a local market or bakery and spend your afternoon here. Such a calming and happy place.

This is easily my favorite park in Barcelona. It feels so relaxed and makes you just want to laze about all day in the grass. The architecture here is stunning and lets you know you're really in Spain. I love to walk through the winding paths to the castle like building in the center. It's also great for running.
