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.

  • Also check out the boating lake next to it. Great fun on €9 for 3 people for 30mins. Good family fun
  • A stunning water cascade with fountains and beautiful statues. It is a large open area as well so a great place to sit or take pictures. You can also walk up to the top for another great picture opportunity.
  • Sooo nice! And also there's an outdoor bar in front of it with cheap and good mojito. Go for it!
  • As beautiful in person as it is in pictures. Great park for an afternoon stroll
  • A gorgeous landmark worth visiting for photographers, site seers, and those who just want to sit, relax, and enjoy the scenery outdoors.
