Parc de la Ciutadella

The city’s main central park absolutely fills up on a pleasant day, but there’s always somewhere to sit and enjoy the passing parade.

The park also features some leftover – and curiously, unused – buildings from the 1888 Universal Exhibition, and a spectacular fountain and lake designed by the park’s architect Josep Fontseré.

The park is also home to Barcelona Zoo, and attached to the promenade along Passeig de Lluís Companys that culminates at the Arc de Triomf, which was the gateway to the Exhibition.
