The Arc and Parc de Ciutadella

Centrally located to the Barri Gotic and the beaches is Barcelona’s Arc de Triumf and the verdant Parc de Ciutadella. The Arc was constructed in the 1880’s for a world exhibition, and the Park is home to the city’s Zoo.

Palm trees and fountains make up the park, with grassy areas and many benches. Barcelonins with dogs don’t bother with leashes and swimming in a fountain earns a harsh whistle from a park official.
