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.

  • This park makes you wonder how great the Universal Exposition must have been when it happened in Barcelona in the 19th century. The place is still amazing to this day. 
  • Great park in the middle of the city. The fountain is pretty, you can also see Arch de Triumph, there are benches, people working out and lots of walking paths. 
  • The Citadel Park is huge, very beautiful and super quiet, despite having many tourists, you don't see a lot of noise or dirt. Within the same is the ZOO of Barcelona and other small museums (such as geology. Well worth a stroll in the evening or soon after the visit to the Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona.

  • 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.
