Arc de Triomf of Barcelona

Barcelona, CT, Spain
15 Kudos
During our stay in Barcelona, Spain our hotel was just a couple blocks from the Parc de la Ciutadella and the Barcelona Zoo. After we arrived at the port we caught a cab to our hotel and of course we were way too early to check-in so we stored our luggage at the hotel and went off exploring. We walked to the park, it was Saturday, and there was an outdoor market set up along the promenade. We had our first taste of pallea in Spain at this market. At the far end of the park’s promenade, Passeig de Lluis Companys, at the traffic circle on Passeig de Sant Joan we saw the Arc de Tiomf of Barcelona. The Arc de Triomf was completed in 1888 and was used as the gateway for the 1888 World’s Fair. The Arc is constructed of beautiful red brick and decorated with many different types of sculptures. There were many other interesting sights in and around the park and promenade as well. To get decent pictures of the area I waited a few days and went back in the morning to take these pictures.
