View Cascada Monumental, a prominent landmark and fountain in Ciutadella Park originally built in 1881. Located at the northern corner of the park, this fountain features a triumphal arch, added after its inauguration due to heavy criticism that the structure wasn't grand enough. Several changes have been made to the monument over the years, including a renovation to make it resemble the Trevi Fountain and some additional work from a then-unknown Gaudi. Take a stroll around the nearby lake before visiting this significant piece of artistic and architectural history.

  • This joint architectural was in sorry state for many years, fortunately the restoration works were carried out and currently is one of the jewels of the Parc de la Ciutadella. Suppliers, sculptures of human figures and animals, staircases, a beautiful Lake with vegetation and swans, etc.

  • It seemed beautiful and impressive by his statues and his Majesty; However, something that 'magic' is left is the fact that is currently dry, without water in the waterfalls or the laguito since it seems that they are doing maintenance work. But, until these last when maintenance work? We hope that soon finish and this beautiful Monumental waterfall again so splendorous and magic as before.

  • We happen to see this place purely by chance as we were walking past and soon discovered a gold colored statue shining in the evening sun. We were thrilled when we got to see this place up close. As we explored further, we came across gardens and finally the Catalan Parliament building. Nice place to walk specially in the evening to relax and recharge. No entry fee of any sort. We started the walk at the Arc and then moved along, crossed the road to access the park. Certainly worth a look. Great location to take pictures if you have a passion in photography. Highly recommended.
  • It’s gorgeous! Awesome! Huge! Giant! Very beautiful monument with lots of art. And what makes me like even more this amazing monument is the nature that is growing among the construction! It’s incredible to see the power of nature coming from rock! This is a MUST GO monument in Barcelona! It’s incredible!
  • Center piece of the Ciutadella Park. Is great to take a photo. Next to the monument there is a statue of a mammoth's real size.
  • Good place for relaxing, sitting down or stroll and to take good pictures near the fountain. Evening time pictures came out really good. Saw lots of people run in this park.
  • This gorgeous fountain : Cascada Monumental, located in Parc de la Ciutadella was an interesting spot to visit.
