Well, I feel there is a Triomf in every big city, and this one did not disappoint! Great architecture and a great place!

This place is a stunning piece of work. You come out of the metro and it just hits you. We had a sunny day so against the blue sky it looked fantastic. Take a stroll right down to the Park at the other end of the walkway.

Near the City Park and the Gothic Quarter, the arch is a nice waypoint. Mostly it's something to get a picture of and walk by while people-watching. Lots of street performers tend to gather here too. It's near a metro stop and several cafes too.

Having just seen the Arc de Triomphe in Paris just two days ago, this arch was literally a mini version of it, which I actually thought was pretty neat. The difference lies, though, in that this arch is more of just a landmark and not something that you can really interact with (you cannot go inside, under, or on top... More

Very nice monument in the heart of BCN. The Arc stands in a very nice location, a fine alley and a touristic area. You can take some really good shots for this monument from across the street. Once done, pass under it and enjoy the 1km (or so) alley where street artists perform. At the end of your walk will... More

I would recommend this area for a great walk that isn't as crowded as Barceloneta or Las Ramblas and if you want to go somewhere a little quieter.

This is a picture-perfect spot. It's fairly easy to get to and has the metro located right across the street. You can strolls around the area or just people-watch.

Original entry from 1888. Stroll under and down and back on the mall. Put it on your walking tour. Note the ceramic design.

Saw it from the car, it's big and very nice. But it's an arch, don't go out of your way to see it. It's cool at most

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
