Arc de Triomf, Barcelona

#50 of 1,793 in Things to do in Barcelona
Like Barcelona itself, the Arc de Triomf is at once both international and Spanish. Spend some time enjoying the street artists and carnival-like atmosphere that surround this arch. Gaze up at it and try to decipher the various symbols. While the style and proportions are classical, out of respect for visitors from abroad, the red brick and sculptures are in line with neo-Mudéjar Spanish architecture. This was a fashionable choice before the turn of the 20th century, when this arch was built.

  • The Arc de Triomphe is a monument which is typically found in many cities, but this is the first I see built in red bricks! Advice about switching to admire and then take the road that leads to the Parc de la Ciutadella by taking the time to have a leisurely walk

  • Must see if you go to Barcelona! It appears at the beginning of a long road that leads to the gates of the Parc de la Ciutadella.
