The majestic Arc de Triomf in Barcelona is usually the meeting place of walking tours in the city. It is one of the city’s landmarks that is visited by tourists usually during the day. In late afternoon, you’ll find more locals here walking, running and strolling around – and all the way to Parc Ciutadella. It’s good place for people-watching. 😉
There are other Arc de Triomf around the world, but I think the most famous is the one in Paris. Barcelona’s version is classical in style and is made of reddish brickwork.
The Arc de Triomf in Barcelona was built as the entrance to Universal Exhibition in 1888.
The frieze of the front declares, “Barcelona Welcomes the World.”
Taking the Metro is the easiest way to get here. It is just outside the Metro. Picasso Museum is 10 minutes walk away.
