This is a fantastic oasis in an otherwise busy city. Lie back on the grass listening to the sound of the fountains while people laugh and play - bliss. Enhanced further by a mojito from one of the many locals wandering the park trying to sell you something!

This is a beautiful and relaxing part in the centre of the city. On a sunny day, it is the perfect place to sit and relax after a busy day in the city. It is well worth a walk around, but is also nice to sit and enjoy a book. Be careful, because there are some pickpockets and thieves active... More

Parks in Spain amaze me. Great places to go for a stroll, have a family picnic or take the kids out to play or the dog for a walk. The park is large and there is a fountain that is beautiful and a pond to row a boat if you wish. There are arboretums to see local plants also. The... More

A very large spectacular fountain in a nice green space in the city. Apparently it is even more spectacular when the lights are on and the fountain is working!

Well maintained parc.its free to visit. You can get good relax. There are so many spots you can get nice clicks. Mainly there is a big fountain it's a nice view. Main problem you can't get free parking places near there. So you should pay some for parking. It's cost 2.75€/h. 5€/2hrs. So think before you go there. Forget to... More

GO ON A SUNDAY! go to relax, with time to enjoy and listen to de street musicians. Take a look around and see everybody doing their thing, like acroyoga and circus and slackline. Read and write, take a nap. Go to the fountain at five and see the tap jam, its really entertaining. You will find peace

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.
