Ciutadella Park, Barcelona

4.5
#2 of 65 in Parks in Barcelona
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.

  • Lots to see and do in the park. You will find groups of people doing almost anything you can think of from slack lining to playing musical instruments. Often a distinct smell of marijuana.
  • My favourite park in Europe. It's so full of life, it's unbelievable. There are people dancing, children playing, and the nature is simply amazing. It's also a great place for taking awesome pictures in Barcelona.
  • After visiting the sagrada familia we decided to wander around the area and take in parts of Barcelona that aren't on the tourist trail. After meandering down some random roads we stumbled across this amazing little park. A refreshing refuge in the city! A perfect place to sit down and relax, picnic maybe? Within this park there is an amazing fountain to behold (you can also walk upon it and see it from the top), Barcelona Zoo and plenty of gardens to check out. A recommended park to add to your itinerary - maybe even walk down to there after you visit the church?
  • A spectacular place to walk around. I was alone the day I was here, but with the rich history you feel everything but alone. Walking the steps to the top of the monument is not a problem at all. The steps are very wide and there is plenty of space to sit for those that are slower on their feet, but be awer that once you get to the top you have to come down.
  • A magnificent park where you can relax and enjoy it's beauty. You can also rent small boats (like kayak but not exactly) and go around in the lake, watch the birds and ducks etc. Great place! Well worth a visit!
