It is quite interesting to see a castle-like structure in an urban park. This building, along with the surrounding complex, was the venue of the 1888 Universal Exhibition. Unfortunately the other structures are in disrepair.

This structure is on the opposite side of the park, a short stroll from the Cascada Monumental. This building dates to 1888 and started life as a cafeteria/restaurant for the Universal Exhibition. The exterior walls are mostly brick construction and the upper sections are similar...More

Near the PArk de la Ciutadela stands this beautiful building. We only saw it from outside. They are renovating it now

Unfortunately the castle structure was closed and under internal refurbishment. Apparently it was most recently used by the zoo assumingly to hold reptiles for display, since it's called the Castle of the 3 Dragons. The building itself is fantastic to look at from the outside...More

Despite its intriguing look, the building was closed shut during our second visit of it. This time, it was totally closed shut, which was a shame. Don't miss the lovely chameleon in the nearby pond.

One of the cult buildings of modernists in Barcelona. Located in the city park. It is very impressive and looks like a castle from fairy tales.

It was a shame that it had some covering on it, (presumably due to some repair work). This only covered part of it and it and it is a very impressive looking building that ads a lovely backdrop at the corner of this wonderful park

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
