“Interesting monument - worth a quick picture”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Arc de triomf fares a little pale in comparison to the one in Paris. But nevertheles is an itneresting monument, close to other attractions. Definitely worth a drive through and perhaps a quick picture. If you have time, you can sit around there, walk through the walkway, and people watch.

“Disappointing commercialism”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Really nice monument , totally ruined by the huge purple dome tent put up by a shoe company (I will not give them free advertising) right at the base of the monument. It made it look tacky and ruined any type of pictures one might have taken. It is hard to believe that the city is that hard up for money to allow this to happen. Really sad.

“A nice surprise”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We found this monument by accident when heading to the hotel from the Metro station. It is well maintained and quite impressive, set out nicely in an avenue and a nice patisserie shop across the road for that naughty snack while viewing.

“Definitely worth a quick look”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We hadn't a clue the Arc existed in Barcelona until we exited the Zoo and started walking towards it.

It's a historic part of Barcelona's history and well worth a visit. The Arc is located right near the Arc De Triomf metro station.

“Inspiring, be sure to see it!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This absolutely rivals Paris' Arc, it is a fabulous attraction. Fascinating to look at, and take a stroll down the long pedestrian only avenue and then look back up to the Arc to see a beautiful framing on the street and hills behind.
Its free and not one to miss.
