Ciutadella Park, Barcelona

4.5
#2 of 71 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.

  • A huge park in the green where to regenerate among young people who dedicate themselves to their disciplines, from singing to dancing, acrobatics etc...

  • It's a very nice park, I did it by bike passing through the Arc de Triomphe, the entire majestic avenue that leads to where the park begins with a freshly recycled fountain that is worth seeing. There's Congress and the Zoo inside.

  • Nice to start the walk through the Arc de Trionf, make the alley and then enter the park. Beautiful the monumental waterfall and the various areas of the park where to find some shade. Take a little walk.

  • Very romantic, great atmosphere. It's a good escape from the crowded city and it has an overall chilly vibe to it. There are plenty of activities although I would recommend using the boats in the lake. These are affordable, and are great fun. You also get great views of the city.
  • One of the best park in Barcelona. Great place for walk, jogging, sitting, relax, mini picnic, anything. Great break from usual busy touring and partying life of Barcelona. Its probably one of the biggest park and oldest in Barcelona. Popular among both locals and tourist, young and old, children and family, there is something for everyone. There is a small restaurant and a boating place with a water body are also there in the park. Yes, the park is pet friendly too. You can bring your pets too. Afternoon time it does get a bit crowded during summer time. A must visit, recommended place!
  • Could've spent longer here as there is plenty to see in this beautiful part of Barcelona. The park is stunning with a number of different areas to see and includes the city zoo. The park has plenty of wildlife and some places for great photo opportunities. Perfect for bird watchers, great for dog walkers and play area for children. Plenty of greenery to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Row boats are also available on the main lake.
  • Wonderful place to go to with your family and kids. A huge space and a lot to see. There is a beautiful fountain (look for the video in the gallery). You can death and relax, lots of bird to be listened to. Definitely one of the most beautiful places in Spain.
  • Interesting and pleasant place. Plenty of shade. Nice cool pond and fountains. Some interesting derelict buildings, Zoological and Geological museums, though they appeared to being refurbished. Decent food stalls. Zoo here as well
