The history to this differs somewhat to the other triumphant arches to be found in Europe, it is also different in its architecture and decor to the surrounding buildings’ adornments. I got to see this as part of our Segway tour.

So there’s this huge festival this weekend, and they’re setting up a giant stage. The park side has the stage, the backside has trailers and fencing. Ugly. Disappointing. Otherwise it’s beautiful.

Great place to take photos. Lots of local shops nearby to eat after a walk around the Arc. The taxis drive through this area a lot too so it’s easy to catch a cab after to your next destination. And it’s a free tourist attraction!

This was a very busy area and a little under whelming. It’s only a few minutes walk from the citudella Park, so worth visiting I suppose, as you are there.

The Arc de Triomf is a beautiful monument at the end of Passeig de Sant Joan. It's nice to spend a moment to look at this and admire the beauty. The monument is located close to Parc De Cuitadella

The Arc de Triomf (Arco de Triunfo) sits at the end of Passeig de Saint Joan with a lovely pedestrian avenue between it and Parc de la Cuitadella. It’s a beautiful monument, built for the Universal Exposition held in 1888. Approaching it from the Parc...More

This is a beautiful monument at the top of a long walkway. The area beyond it is teaming with life and it is nice to wander past something so beautiful, although you wouldn't stick around too long, once you've seen it that is basically it.

Another must in Barcelona. It's free, it's great for pictures: the long stretch makes it great for walking or just sitting on the grass. Beautiful place, a lot of street performers and a bustling atmosphere.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

During our travels in Barcelona, we had no indication of a market at the Arc de Triomf. However we did see energetic kids on skateboards, an acrobat on roller skates and families enjoying the sunshine.
