The Arc de Triomf (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈaɾk də tɾiˈomf]) or Arco de Triunfo in Spanish, is a triumphal arch in the city of Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain. It was built by architect Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas 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. It is located at the northern end of the promenade, facing the Passeig de Sant Joan.

Really breathtaking to see- much bigger than you may have expected!! And the promenade attached to it really is beautiful. Even though it was packed full of people at the time it felt peaceful.
It's nice and worth taking a look! The park nearby is also really nice. One thing that was a bit unfortunate is that, on the park side, they had all sorts of temporary tents set up that got close to the Arco. It made for unfortunate views and pictures while we were there. It would have been nice if they just kept the tents back a bit further. You can go to the opposite side and get some better views but you're near the traffic.
A great piece of architectural beauty, there's a long corridor where people can walk or ride a bike. There's several benches and space to sit down and enjoy the view. The monument itself is in very good condition and it is definitely a must-see sight in Barcelona.
We visited Barcelona in the winters around new years. Staying close to Arco De Triunfo is the best you can do. The La Ramblas is right next door, there is a great park to walk around and the beach is not even half a mile away. The place has a lot of eating options around it and has a lovely ambience to it.
Absolutely breathtaking to see in person. Barcelona is one of the most incredible cities I have ever had the pleasure of traveling to. So much culture, energy and best yet...dogs! So so many dogs. I've never seen such a large city be so dog friendly. This place will always have a special place in my heart
Nice park to hang out at in the early mornings and evenings. We rode bikes through this park, ate lunch and watched skate boarders doing cool tricks here! The vibe is super chill and the arc itself is inspirational! It's a really well preserved. The lamp posts that line the street through the arc were gifts from Paris! Fun fact for ya haha.
Beautiful place for walk for you and the whole family. Location is great and very easy to reach from La Rambla. You do everything over there from sitting in its lovely garden to buying souvenirs at very good prices. For dogs owners, it's good destination.
Good place for a walk. Nice gardens. Very close is the Barcelona freaky Block - Comics & game stores. Metro station close.
I never realised Spain had one too! It was a monument my girlfriend and I wanted to see and boy did it look magnificent! There were street performers and artists around. Great atmosphere. A must go to place in Barcelona!
Beautiful architecture of an arc, like many other arcs here in Europe. This one is unique though with his colour. Not quiet big like the French one, but still a great design and gives a beautiful panorama to the city. You should have a bike tour in front of it, at the park ;)
This place is great place to visit other than the Rambrant as it also has it's fair share of street performers. It's really accessible with a metro station only about 2 minutes walk away. I would recommend going on a Sunday as it's a great place for a little stroke. As always be vigilant as there are pickpockets around, I didn't see any myself but just always good to be safe.
