This monument is inside of a beautiful park with shadow spots! Very nice for a picnic or just rest! Aside from the green around it, it is a stunning fountain and unique lakes! It was the most beautiful place in Barcelona i have been!
Everybody must go there!

Nice park and although busy was not crowded. We saw ducks and ducklings enjoying the water too. Lots of good photo opportunities.

The monument is impressive and like most in Barcelona is worth a look but the park itself is large and worth visiting but not special.

This monumental fountain and pond is located at the Passeig De Pujaides end of the Park. It was built between 1875 and 1881 and is claimed to loosely resemble the Trevi Fountain in Rome. I have seen the Trevi since visiting this monument and was unable to discern any similarity.
In the center of the fountain there is a white marble sculpture of Venus, emerging from a clamshell. On top of the triumphal arch, there's a golden statue of Aurora and her chariot drawn by four horses. Gaudi is reputed to have worked as an apprentice here while the monument was under construction.
It seems that you can legitimately climb to the top and enjoy the views, I owe the hordes of oriental selfie chasers an apology on this occasion.

Saw this park on the TV show "Better late than never" and had to go. A very nice park with beautiful views. Pictures do not do this park justice. a must see in Barcelona.
