The Parc de la Ciutadella (Spanish for ‘park of the citadel’) was built in 1872 on the site of the citadel of Barcelona, which was deeply unpopular with the citizens of Barcelona since the building of the citadel had made many people homeless and cost them extra in tax money. Today the park is full of statues and monuments, plus a stunning lake and a monumental waterfall. It’s also the site of Barcelona’s zoo and the Catalonian parliament building. Take a tour with an expert guide to discover all of the park’s secrets!
