Exactly what it says on the tin. Beautiful red brick architecture that serves as a gateway to the park beyond. Very accessible via subway. I would have given it a higher mark but there were (like lots of attractions sadly), quite a few street sellers,...More

This is a wonderful monument set in a very pleasant pedestrianised area complete with small turrets either side, intricate detail and fabulous figurines to the top. It's not quite as good as it's namesake but still worth seeing.

This is close to a free park. It is free. It is not too far away from a metro station so it is convenient to visit.

To get straight to the point, we were mugged in the park. We enjoyed the Arc, the park, initially. But as we walked toward the Zoo, sat down to look at our map, the thieves were upon us. One took our phone that was next...More

It was built as the main access gate for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair. The arch crosses over the wide central promenade of the Passeig de Lluís Companys, leading to the Ciutadella Park that now occupies the site of the world fair. If you take...More

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
