Parc de la Ciutadella

Barcelona, Spain

For decades, the Parc de la Cuitadella was Barcelona’s only public green space. Today, the 70-acre park remains a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Visitors may find it hard to imagine that this bustling destination is less than a tenth the size of New York’s Central Park, yet packed full of so many activities and so much history. Marvel at the massive fountain with its signature waterfall, visit the Parliament of Catalonia, tour the Museum of Geology or Zoology or take a boat out on the lake. Winding paths with lush vegetation are perfect for an easy afternoon stroll. Another “don’t miss” is the park’s zoo, one of the largest in Europe.
