Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web
Since its opening in the mid-19th century, Ciutadella Park has remained one of the most popular green areas in the city. The sprawling park covers 280,000 sq m (70 acres), with a manmade lake, a zoo, sporting areas, the Parliament of Catalonia building, museums, and Josep Fontserè's iconic fountain. Travel down the garden paths that ribbon through the foliage, or stay on the pathways where you'll see performers practicing on a tightrope, juggling, or playing music. Small signs at the base of the trees and plants label the park's different types of vegetation.

  • Nice place to lie down to rest, wonderful la fontana and often the scene of several events. Houses the Parliament of Catalonia, nice to see. Recommend a walk to rest after a day of racing, there are plenty of young (and inevitable 24/7 boys with Bongos!)

  • Lovely park but dependent on the weather. If it rains you're going to get wet. However, on a sunny day it is lovely to stroll around 
  • Upon entering this large pretty park it'll be apparent that this park is popular with not just tourists, (from what I saw hiring a segway to get around is an option here) but also with locals. This park also appears to be a popular place for dogs to frolic and socialise! (with a special section just for dogs). The park's well known fountain is currently undergoing renovation, with the fountain with absolutely bone-dry, but still, the cascada still makes for a nice picture. Other areas of interest within the park include a lake, a zoology museum- also known as the 'Castle of the Three Dragons'.
  • Green zone for couples in love, Families with children, often free dancing (salsa, tango, classics... check the web) near the fountain. Very lively, lots of young people, often markets and fiestas. Unfortunately also a place where everybody brings it's dog to leave their remains in the grass. So better check before you sit or lay down. Public toilet at the side of the kiosk at the fountain is free.
  • It's a nice, clean green park that is usually overcrowded. I recommend it as a place to stop and take a break if you're in the area, just beware of your belongings and don't expect too much peace and quiet on the weekends.
  • Lovely and lively park with wonderfully maintained trees and gras and lots of opportunities to sit and enjoy. Near the Gothic Quarter and a great place to rest.
  • Lovely, lively public park. Large waterfight going on at the base of the Cascades on the Sunday we visited - a lot of fun being had! Slackrope walkers, aerial hoop, sculptures and a flower garden - a lovely place to spend an afternoon.
