Since its opening in the mid-19th century, Ciutadella Park has remained one of the most popular green areas in the city. The sprawling park covers 280,000 sq m (70 acres), with a manmade lake, a zoo, sporting areas, the Parliament of Catalonia building, museums, and Josep Fontserè's iconic fountain. Travel down the garden paths that ribbon through the foliage, or stay on the pathways where you'll see performers practicing on a tightrope, juggling, or playing music. Small signs at the base of the trees and plants label the park's different types of vegetation.

  • Fantastic park to visit. Visited it first on a bike tour so we got a lot of the history and then returned ourselves. It would be very easy if you are a person who likes parks to be there for hours...

  • Very nice park just opposite the Arc De Triomf. If you are visiting Arc De Triomf, do walk across to check out this park. It is not overly crowded on a Tuesday morning.

  • Absolutely love this park - it's a green tropical oasis in the centre of Barcelona! A fantastic place to go on a romantic stroll / relax in the sun on a bench. The fountains and statues are very picturesque and a great spot to take some photos and explore. It is a massive park which we weren't able to explore all of it but the parts we did see were amazing. You can spend as much time as you want here because it's so big. My partner and I also did the boat rental in the pond which was a great afternoon activity and a bargain at 6 euros.
  • Wonderful park free of charge. Beautiful monuments and picturesque buildings. Worth coming here for a calm walk. Dogs are not allowed unfortunately. Also a good spot for making photos. Many locals spend time here as well. The park is surrounded by many cafes so you can easy after find a place to sit and have a small snack.
