Awesome monument, located in the Parc de la Ciutadella, built in 1888 because of the Barcelona World Fair.
Admission to the parc is free.

Located within the Ciutadella Park, is this very impressive structure, of statues and cascading water all finishing in a beautiful pond, the famous architect Guadi was involved in the project albeit early in his career.

The "Grand Cascade" was built between 1875 and 1888 under the direction of the architect Josep Fontasere. The hydraulic project for the "Cascade" was developed by the young Antonio Gaudí, and a huge number of sculptures decorating the complex were the fruit of the work of a whole team of sculptors, among which the names of such major masters as Rossend Nobas, Rafael Atche, Joan Flotats and Venancy Valmitzhana should be mentioned.

I’m not sure what this monumental waterfall/fountain is for, but I will endeavour to research! It’s a lovely design and well maintained and in beautiful surroundings.

This really majestic monumental fountain is set in the Parc de la Ciutadella, very close to the red brick Triumphal Arch.
Beside the fountain the park is beautiful as well, with many walking paths and boats to hire on a small central lake.
However, I deduct one star for many sketchy people around selling trinkets, drinking and smoking weed, as well homeless sleeping around.

The fountain was off during our visit, not sure if it has operating hours. A few homeless people were sleeping in the top floor area - very awkward sight seeing.

Cascada Monumental is definitely worth a visit on your trip to Barcelona situated in a nice park which is relatively quiet. It is a brilliant place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre which is only a 15-20 min walk away.

This is a huge fountain in the Parc de la Ciutadella. Most people stop here for a photo. We sat opposite with an icecream and watched the fountain and the people around it.

Lovely part of the city located in a well kept park. Really easy to find and about 1-2 minutes from the Arc de triophme. We loved the water with the ducks and birds nice for a family.
