Since its opening in the mid-19th century, Ciutadella Park has remained one of the most popular green areas in the city. The sprawling park covers 280,000 sq m (70 acres), with a manmade lake, a zoo, sporting areas, the Parliament of Catalonia building, museums, and Josep Fontserè's iconic fountain. Travel down the garden paths that ribbon through the foliage, or stay on the pathways where you'll see performers practicing on a tightrope, juggling, or playing music. Small signs at the base of the trees and plants label the park's different types of vegetation.

  • We visited this park several times during our visit to Barcelona. It was within an easy walk from our hotel and as keen birdwatchers we loved the birdlife in this park, quite unexpected for a city...

  • A very nice park and a great place for kids and toddlers. Our two years old enjoyed running around the park, watching the animals in the lake and the kids playground.

  • An extremely beautiful park. Plenty of green spaces, sports and outdoor activities designated areas, places where you can sit down for a picnic, historical buildings and playgrounds for the little ones. It's also in proximity of the pool, the zoo and plenty of shops and restaurants. We have spent a lot of time there with the little ones, running around, making friends and playing with dogs. It was one of our favourite places! God, I miss it so much.
  • I loved this park. It was massive and exploring it was really a treat. Many people were relaxing, sunbathing, rowing in boats, dancing or enjoying the live music and eateries around. There is even a proper zoo in this park. It's got everything. It is worth taking the time to enjoy the sun and mingle with the locals.
