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.

  • Loved this park! It's huge! Lot of live music and performances around. Great area to relax, sit down for drinks or exercise  more »
  • It is indeed a beautiful park, quite green, lots of people coming to chill or with children to have fun, a public space that everyone can enjoy. I had a good time but I have to admit that for the biggest green park in Barcelona it isn't big enough and would have preferred to have pavement on the way but this is not an issue. Worth coming to take some pictures and enjoy yourself
  • Good place to relax and spend time with family, friends. I cannot say that this is must visit because of its beauty, but if you stay in the city for several days/weeks to spend evening in this park is really a good option. Can relax and enjoy.
