"Arc de Triumf" Arc De Triomf Tip by Rupanworld

Arc De Triomf, Barcelona: 67 reviews and 114 photos


This Arc de Triumf at Barcelona is the main entrance of the Parc de la Ciutadella. This arch made of red bricks built for the World Exhibition of 1888 was supposed to serve as its main gate. It is also supposed to be a replica of the Arc de Triomphe at Paris, but to me, the similarity seemed only in the name and concept. The arch at barcelona can in no way be compared to the one in paris, neither in beauty, nor in grandeur, not even in the sheer feel of the place.

Address: Passeig de Lluis Companys.
Directions: Barri Gotic Metro: Arc de Triomf.
