Arc de Triomf, Barcelona

4.3
#45 of 1,560 in Things to do in Barcelona
Like Barcelona itself, the Arc de Triomf is at once both international and Spanish. Spend some time enjoying the street artists and carnival-like atmosphere that surround this arch. Gaze up at it and try to decipher the various symbols. While the style and proportions are classical, out of respect for visitors from abroad, the red brick and sculptures are in line with neo-Mudéjar Spanish architecture. This was a fashionable choice before the turn of the 20th century, when this arch was built.

  • This time we get out of the subway to the famous Arc de Triomphe. Even when we're the arc de triomphe. And well this one is for us all too beautiful. And even more beautiful because it's relatively quieter. Beautiful pedestrian beautiful perspective beautiful together not really top. And in addition there is a geocache we regret not to be out of the Earth

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
