One of the key places in Barcelona. Very busy place so be careful while taking a photos of other people might take advantage of you not paying attention to your bag. At the moment under construction as you can see on my photos. However still...More
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.
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!
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.

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.

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.
