Lovely morning spent at this park, starting at the lovely Arc de triomf and walking through to see the fountains (being cleaned at the time) but the structures are beautiful. Be careful to avoid a scam about disabled access which then asks for a 'donation'. At the end is Barcelona zoo which was a nice way to spend half a... More

I really nice little park, with great fountain (Cascada Monumental) - limited facilities, but great for a wander - near the Zoo and Arc de Triumph.

If you want to calm down go there. Nice relaxing place. Unfortunatelly you cannot pass through it to the beach. But if you get round it there is the tram which takes you to further beaches.

Nice enough place for a wander if you have an afternoon to kill. Can then wander over to the Arc De Triumph after too.

This is a really great park and open space in the heart of the city. The fountains and architecture are interesting and accessible. Good change of pace in Barcelona.

Parc de la Ciutadella is a beautiful place to take a break from the lively city life. The atmosphere is relaxed, you can see the magical fountains, talented buckers and local entertainers, chill out by the lake or take a seat and people watch. I went early on a Sunday sunny morning and it was a really nice start to... More

A small, hot, city park. Impressive arc de triumph at one end, mucky boating pond where you can hire a rowing boat, some ducks. The parrots were cool, though. We visited on a really hot day and there wasn't enough shade - I'd have enjoyed it more if I wasn't so hot!

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. We were greeted with a wonderful experience of watching The Catalans dancing meringue in the gazebo - it's such an experience to witness in full form, what historical they are known for - a Spanish Romance ethnic group. The Park offered wide space and abundance of beautiful foliage, ponds and man-made lake where you... 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.
