Cascada Monumental, Barcelona

(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Fountain is located at the Park. Very nice and even majestically. Be sure to go to sit opposite a little think and enjoy.

  • A beautiful work of Rossend Nobas Catalan sculptor, bathed in gold. Beautiful monument for pictures worth the visit to the Park.

  • The fountain is really big and pretty, enriches a park which I don't think is beautiful. Pity that the water is too dirty and that, going up the stairs to see it from above, or surrounded by filth and degradation.

  • The "Parc de la Ciutadella" is fantastic. You can find silence and a place to relax after the long walks through the city. Even dogs are allowed...so just a perfect place near to the Zoo of Barcelona.
  • The Parc de la Ciutadella is a large and beautiful public park in Barcelona. Many activities occur in this park. The Cascada Monumental is thought to have some of Antoni Gaudí's early work as an architecture intern/student. In particular the very organic forms and lines of the cascada, as well as other elements through out the park (like handrails and paths). Very nice. Walk to the top and look out over the park. Statues with water cascading from their mouths, water nymphs, and King Neptune. Just gorgeous.
  • Everything is beautiful and special in tais place. It is Good to everyone
  • Great place to sit, have a drink and watch the world go by while your kids play.
  • Detail is amazing. Great photo op
