Arc de Triomf, Barcelona

(3.9/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Arc de Triomf on your trip to Barcelona, use our Barcelona travel itinerary planner.

  • the arc looks pretty cool - you can see beautiful buildings and a tree-lined alley through it...stroll along the alley and you'll get to the Park Cituadella as well as the Zoo 
  • Just a nice walk with a super view. It's good to have some story behind and maybe some guidance, as it is quite a story around. 
  • The name does a disservice for this arch, since it immediately makes you compare it to the much bigger one in Paris. The arch in Barcelona its own greatness.
