Big place where you can walk around and relax. The fountain is beautiful but not very well kept. Graffiti on walls, a homeless guy staying with a tent at the base of the monument, brushing his teeth while you are visiting and taking photos. A...More

it was a wonderful Sunday in the park, not too busy but not quiet either, with a good mix of musicians. Great old statues, fountains, the palace to admire.

Worth a wander in the early evening when the park is popular for paseos. The gilded statues of the fountain are amazing to see as well.

Perfect spot for a walk, when you need a break from sightseeing. Busy with locals in weekends, quiet suring the week. Locals like to walk, jog and relax in the parc.

A lot of green space to rest your eyes on! Beautiful sightseeing, chill atmosphere, music in the background and amazing view to the Citadel! Don't miss it!

Truly spectacular and given the time it was built it is pretty amazing. Very advanced and very interesting. At times it was overcrowded with people jockying to find the best photo op (and blocking views for everyone else) Not relaxing but very fab. Must see.

This place is sooo pretty, especially for photo. Amazing fountain!!! However, there are lots of homeless inside this park and make me feel unsafe for a girl walk around the park. I will recommend to go there as a group instead single female

This is a wonderful parc to go to to escape the hustle and bustle, and sit amongst the greenery and shade. You may see local well behaved kindergarten tots having a snack before being 'trolleyed' back to their schools. The fountain is stunning and worth...More

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs

No there is no pool here. It's more of a botanical garden with trees, lawns etc.

Opposite the fountain within the park there is a small bar that serves cold drinks and light bites. Perfect for refreshing yourself or perhaps having a light bite I.e a sandwich and a drink. Chairs and tables are also... More
