Parc de la Ciutadella

Barcelona’s oldest and most popular central park, the Parc de la Ciutadella is a picturesque expanse of greenery located just northeast of the city center, not far from the Barceloneta beach. The 74-acre park was designed in 1872 by architect Josep Fontsère, who also created the impressive Baroque Cascada inside the park - a 19th-century triumphal arch and fountain – and was famously assisted by a young Gaudí. At the northern entrance, the landmark Arc de Triomf designed by Josep Vilaseca, serves as the monumental gateway to the park, perched at the head of a wide pedestrian walkway. Today the park is home to a boating lake, several museums and a much-celebrated series of sculptures, including the modern 'Monument to the World Fair' by Antoni Clavé, a giant stone mammoth, and pieces by Frederic Marès, Eusebi Arnau, Josep Llimona, Pau Gargallo and Manuel Fuxà, among others.

Strolling the idyllic promenades, lined with palm trees and colorful flowerbeds, is one of the most popular pastimes for visitors to the park, but there are also a number of impressive buildings are dotted throughout. The 19th century Castel dels Tres Dragons, built to resemble a medieval castle, and the neoclassical Martorell, or Geology Museum, designed by Antoni Rovira i Tries in 1870, are both worth a look, but the dramatic centerpiece to the park is the striking Catalan Parliament building, the park’s oldest building.

Barcelona Zoo, home to 7,500 animals including dolphins, orangutans, snow leopards and elephants, is another much-visited attraction, along with the Zoology museum, Geology Museum and Botanical gardens. Whether you’re looking to spot local wildlife, to enjoy the park’s many summer music and theater events or scout out a scenic picnic spot, Parc de la Ciutadella is a must for visitors to Barcelona.
