It is a nice place to walk and see a great park with a lot of plants and pretty statues. Sadly there are some buildings there which seems to be abandoned and some paths with excessive mud.

This was such a beautiful park! We went for a stroll around it, admired the magnificant fountain/waterfall and then rented a little boat on the lake for 30 mins for only 6 euro! Well worth a visit.

Walked to Parc de la Ciutadella to the fountain. The golden chariot on top and the cascading waterfalls were beautiful. This spot is a big favorite for tourists and locals alike. The park is huge and provides lots of opportunity to relax or be as active as you want.

Close to our hotel and located in front of the Barcelona Zoo. Perfect for a Sunday morning run. Beautiful Cascada Monumental with the golden horses and small pound were you can rent boats. Not on Sunday morning of course.

It is a great place for a stroll or just a lazy time on the bench, but also for jogging. You'll find there a very nice fountain, lots of green, a mammoth, not a real one of course. The Zoo of Barcelona is situated there as well. In front of the park is situated the Arc de Triompf and on... More

This is beautiful, a must see in this city. You can do it as park of most guided bicycle tours, I believe.

The park itself is pleasant to walk round, it's a refreshing space in the city and families, cyclists and dog-walkers can be seen exploring along with tour groups and couple. The Cascada is definitely something to see, the large golden chariot and other shiny figures are impressive as is the scale of the structure.

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.
