Arc de Triomf, Barcelona

#53 of 1,804 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 pretty Arc de Triomf was built as the main access gate for the 1888 Barcelona World’s Fair, and leads to the path into Ciutadella Park.  more »
  • I admire such big buildings that made by human hand, with no obvious use... Just to showcase architecture and mechanic.  more »
