Barcelona Ciutadella park

17 hectares of park in the heart of the Ciutadella

Located between the Triumphal arch and the Barcelona Zoo, the magnificent Parc de la Ciutadella of Barcelona is the ideal place for family outings. The waterfalls, gardens, sculptures, museums, woods, playgrounds and artificial lake that form the Parc de la Ciutadella will take you directly to Barcelona's Olympic port.

Nestled in the heart of the Ciutadella district, this 17 hectares of park takes its name from the Ciutadella fortress which was built after the War of Succession, then bombed in 1843 and totally demolished in 1868 during the revolution. Twenty years later, the Ciutadella Park hosted the Universal Exhibition of 1888, on which occasion the Triumphal Arch that forms one end of the park was built to mark its entrance.
