View Cascada Monumental, a prominent landmark and fountain in Ciutadella Park originally built in 1881. Located at the northern corner of the park, this fountain features a triumphal arch, added after its inauguration due to heavy criticism that the structure wasn't grand enough. Several changes have been made to the monument over the years, including a renovation to make it resemble the Trevi Fountain and some additional work from a then-unknown Gaudi. Take a stroll around the nearby lake before visiting this significant piece of artistic and architectural history.

It is undoubtedly the exclusive point of the walk of the Citadel. Only to see this monument justifies a visit to the Park. Incidentally, the Park and above all the green areas maintenance enough leaves to be desired, luckily still this state of neglect does not dull so beautiful work of art.

  • A beautiful place to go a relax for a bit. A wonderful view of the pool, the birds, and the incredible monument awaits you. Better to visit in the morning of right before sunset, so you get to see the hole place without many tourists or noise from the park. A must see if you decide to visit Barcelona. Wonderful.
  • One of the most impressive sights to visit in Barcelona. If you'll get lucky and you visit Barcelona during the weekend you can sometimes find groups that come here to dance. Unfortunately I don't know the exact schedule but I'm sure that if you ask the locals someone will know when is the right time.
