Ciutadella Park, Barcelona

(4.5/5 based on 5,000+ 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. To visit Ciutadella Park and get the most from your holiday in Barcelona, create itinerary details personal to you using our Barcelona vacation builder.

  • It was my favorite spot in the park ! So big and beautiful ! We will come back if we will have a chance to be in Barcelone ;)  more »
  • I went there on Sunday, so I can enjoy watching how the locals are spending their day there, and it was lovely, however, the place needs to be taken care of  more »
  • Most of the park was closed off because of an event, but what we saw was pretty. It's great for kids as there is a lot of room to run around. Quite a few sights to see, especially the majestic cascade...  more »

  • 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.
