Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona, Spain

Spain Barcelona Parc

The Parc de la Ciutadella is a 30 hectares (74 acres) park, located in Barcelona, Spain.

The park was designed in the mid-19th century by the Spanish Catalan architect Josep Fontsére (1829–1897).



The principal edifice of the Parc de la Ciutadella is the Palau del Parlament de Catalunya, erected between 1717 and 1727 to the design of the Flemish engineer George Prosper Verboom (1665–1744).

The park is also home to the waterfall, commonly known as the Cascada. It was erected between 1882 to 1888 by Josep Fontsére and to a small extent by the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926).

The Parc de la Ciutadella is very idyllic and probably the greenest oasis in the megacity of Barcelona. It invites you to relax, to rebound and to go for long walks, as well as for a picnic.
