Arc de Triomf, Barcelona

#51 of 1,837 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.

  • A detailed look at this portal makes us see that the Arc de Triomphe was the gateway to the modernity of Barcelona in the late nineteenth century. It is a monument of classical shape and proportions but full of symbolism, which constitute one of the icons of the city.

  • Beautiful constructions, I visited the arc of triumph in the morning that looks better to make pictures. In the morning there are few people!
