Arc de Triomf Tours

star-5
2 Reviews
Arc de Triomf
With its signature red-and-white neo-Mudéjar brickwork, the Arc de Triomf of Barcelona stands tall in the center of the wide Passeig de Lluís Companys. Designed by Catalan architect Josep Vilaseca, it originally served as the entrance to the 1888 Universal Exposition, which took place at the nearby Parc de la Ciutadella.

The Basics
While the Universal Exposition was a commercial failure, the Arc de Triomf has become an enduring symbol of the city and one of its most notable landmarks. Today, the arch marks the starting point of a long promenade often used for festivals and events (and a favorite for walking and people watching). Most sightseeing tours at least pass by the arch, whether on foot or by bike, bus, or Segway. After-dark ghost tours of the old city typically begin beneath the illuminated arch.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Arc de Triomf is a must-see for first-time visitors.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunblock, sunglasses, and a hat as the area around the arch has minimal shade.
  • The promenade surrounding the arch is wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There
The Arc de Triomf is very easy to get to by public transportation; it even has its own metro station: Arc de Triomf on line 1. Several buses also stop nearby.

When to Get There

The Arc de Triomf is always visible (and the surrounding promenade always open). Visit in the early morning or late evening when the golden light provides the best opportunity for photos. If you’re in town in September, head to the arch on September 11, when the promenade fills up with Catalan flag–waving celebrants during the National Day of Catalonia.

Details of the Arch

Various friezes in stone and tile along the sides of the arch represent advancements in technology, the arts, and agriculture. At the top of the arch are the coats of arms of 49 provinces of Spain, topped with Barcelona’s coat of arms. Another relief shows Barcelona welcoming the visiting nations.
Address: Passeig de Sant Joan and Av. de Vilanova, Barcelona 08018, Spain
