Parc de la ciutadella is an absolutely gem to see when in Barcelona. There is so many places to explore in the park . Lots of places to also sit or sunbathe. It’s just a lovely park with many activities to find and do.

we drove through the park by bike on a guided tour of Barcelona. The park is beautiful and relaxing. I am sure it is difficult to spend some time on this, but unfortunately we have not taken the time to do so.

Beautiful park in Barcelona. The zoo is situated here. We hired rowing boats on the lake here... €6 for two people, for half hour. So reasonable and the they're not strict on the timing either. Highly recommend a stroll through if you're in Barcelona, vibrant...More

Walked around this park after visiting the zoo. Lots of shaded areas and a beautiful fountain which you can climb to get a nice view.

We loved this park...and actually went through it several times on our treks to other designations in Barcelona. The park setting is really beautiful the structures, the light posts - all of it.

This place had the potential to be a beautiful green area of Barcelona, with large meadows and the majestic fountain of Gaudi. Sadly it’s poorly maintained, most of the grass is now dirt and is impossible to get some rest with the “cerveza beer” guys...More

This was actually my husband's favorite part of Barcelona. The park isn't huge, very walkable, but has quite a bit to see. The Arc de triumph is right outside the park which is a plus. There are artisans selling items, musicians hanging out, and people...More

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
