Ciutadella Park, Barcelona
(4.5/5 based on 4,800+ 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.

  • Enchanted by this beautiful park is the perfect place to go for a walk you a guy with inear, a grandfather retired or just a person who wants to clear your mind. When I went there were several brides to use the location for their photo shoot (a testament to her beauty) and there was also a girl who taught dance to children from 4 to 12 years around twenty. The latter were beautiful: like something out of a movie style ' Step Up '. Whatever the reason for your visit to Barcelona you cannot miss it!

  • … In the Centre of Barcelona close to the Arc de Triomphe is located the beautiful Citadel Park with luxurious fountain-waterfall (say, Gaudi "had a hand" to some of its elements) with Venus in the opened shell. February-winter, however. So I'm not surprised that the fountain is not working. But all of a sudden turn it on! Hooray! It was interesting to watch, as the Jet is gradually gaining power. An artificial lake, which ride on boats, seemed to me a little, maybe because he was drained to brush. Rows of boats lying on the ground. The most spectacular was (I was in Spain first day and saw and heard it for the first time) Mandarin trees, densely uveshennye bright fruit, and the cries of parrots mahon'kih. The yard-winter, and here is is! Mandarins urgently wanted to eat. Finally, I was able to get one bright beautiful ball, cleared (some juicy!), and stacked it all teeth. At the same moment her mouth just perekosilo from bitter-sour juice! Yes, they are wild!

  • It's an outstanding space with a special story/history. People from all walks of life - families, friends, lovers, homeless, locals and tourists alike - gather for picnics, leisurely strolls, birthday parties, dancing, and pick-up soccer games. There are many pockets and walkways to enjoy. Not so appetizing are the dog and human waste; the place could be enjoyed more responsibly by the citizens and cleaned better by the city.
  • Fantastic park, beautiful and full of diverse flora! You can discover many small details in the ornaments and buildings. Must see in Barcelona.
  • Nice park, it's one of the best places in Barcelona to enjoy with the family. Also close to the zoo if you like them.
  • Great park to let your kids play in. We were able to let our kids (ages 10 & 13) roam on their own with friends while we enjoyed the fountain.
  • Nice view on barcelona and a good cheap alternative (5€) when you weren't able to book the guell park on time.
