Fun site to see

Quick walk from our hotel. This was the first thing we did upon arriving in Barcelona. It was evening and everyone was out walking their dogs, kids playing, families and visitors all around. Right next to a park which I recommend strolling thru.

many details
Nov. 2020
This brick arch is very beautiful. It has many details. Along this arch is a street that is covered with palm trees on both sides. Most of the time here you can see street shows. We went there shortly after midnight However, someone was playing the violin there. But in this place, take care of your wallet, mobile phone and belongings.

Popular Must See Attraction in Barcelona

Very popular area with street music and vendors in the evenings. Arc de Triomf is a must see for any visit to Barcelona. Popular for dog walking also.

Selfie time
Sep. 2021 • Couples
This is another amazing structure in Barcelona! It is a great place to take selfie’s! The location is kind of in the middle of town. So there are plenty of places to eat and get a drink! This place was a little busier than we expected but nothing over the top. Plan to see this and take a few and then have lunch!

It's very unique but not much of a "wow"factor
Feb. 2020
I just happened to stumble across this when walking in the park. The park itself is very lovely, and it was very nice to see this too. It's not as huge as photos lead it to be, but nonetheless, it's still quite charming. If you're wanting something free to see in Barcelona, then walking to see this is very nice.

unique arch of triumph
Sep. 2020
I've seen quite a few triumph arches in my travels, including that most famous one in Paris. This one is one of the most unique given it's gothic style and red brick. I like it a lot, its easily found in it's open parkway. The parks nearby are decent for a sangria hideaway too.

Designed in the style of neo-mudéjar, but I saw India.
Dec. 2019
Spain could no longer boast of military victories in the XIX century, so this 30-meter triumphal arch was built by the architect José Vilaseca as the main entrance to the Barcelona world's fair in 1888. Holding it in the Catalan capital was a recognition of its success in industrial growth. Therefore, instead of cannons and banners on the arch, we see allegories of Industry, Agriculture and Trade (sculptor Antoni Vilanova), allegories of Sciences and Arts (Torquat Tasso). What 12 women mean (sculptors Manuel Fuxá and Pere Carbonell) I never found out. The architect designed the arch in the style of neo-mudéjar, but from a distance it is associated more with India. Something like the Gate of India. Attracted by the design, I saw that the arch continues a peaceful tradition. On this day, there was an exhibition of Catalan wines. I had to go back to the bus station. The disappointment was boundless...

Worth a stop but only if you have time
Nov. 2019
Barcelona’s Arc de Triumph was built by Josep Casanova as a welcome entrance to the 1888 World Expo, Spain’s first international exposition. Although the expo was attended by more than 400,000 people, it took 10 years for Barcelona to recover financially. The history is interesting and the views around, but in itself, I would rather spend my time in the historic districts.
