An entire ornamental bastion

Near the beautiful neighborhood of El Borne and the Ciudadela park, there is a lovely monument giving the area a historical touch: the Arc de Triomf of Barcelona (Triumphal Arch).

A structure built in the framework of the Universal Exposition of 1888, work of the architect Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas. An entire ornamental bastion you can see from far away, although it is better to come closer to take a few good pictures.

It has reminiscences of the brick architecture of Arab origin. Apart from symbolizing the respect of the city towards the participating nations during the exhibition, this arch proudly displays the coat of arms of the city and refers to the forty-nine Spanish provinces.

The place is easy to reach by subway, bike, or by foot. It's a long walk starting from the exit of Ciudadela Park. Therefore, I recommend taking a walk in the park and then going to the arch or the opposite side, letting you tick to sights off your list. Another way to get there is through the Paseo de San Joan or Liuís Comanys.

Strong symbolism

To me, the most appealing aspect of the Arch is its symbolism. It wasn't built to recall an act of war, like most arches, but as a welcome gate, to welcome all those who came to visit the Universal Exposition of 1888 in Barcelona.

It's made of a brick structure and it is of neo-Mudejar style. One can see representations of industry, commerce, and handicraft in the upper part of the arch. It is approximately 30 meters high and features the coat of arms of all Spanish provences.

It was reformed in 1989, and is in very good condition. It is located on a very wide avenue between the Paseo San Juan and Paseo Lluis Companys. If we follow the latter, we'll arrive at the Ciudadela park, a lovely park where one can enjoy a variety of experiences. The Zoo of Barcelona is next to it.

Next to the ciudadela

Many cities have their Triumphal Arch, gate or bridge... And this is Barcelona's, located next to the Ciudadela park. It has a perfect street for skating, walking, riding a bike, etc. An area of Barcelona slightly distant from the center but it is worth visiting.

Nestled among the palm trees of the maritime city of Barcelona this triumphal arch is really a striking architectural feature not to be missed for its elegance and uniqueness, as well as the spirit of peace that inspired the building. The style of this arc is defined as Mudejar term for the Iberian Muslims who decided to stay in these areas do not return to their country of origin. It was built to serve as entry to the EXPO in 1888 by Josep Vilaseca celebrating the triumph of art over war. The Arab influence is strongly present at the bottom while keeping the shields of the various Spanish provinces. Still preserves the game of shapes and colors that alternate brick and marble, smooth walls and reliefs, statues of angels and the words of welcome to the nations on the top.

Immerso fra le palme della città marinara di Barcellona questo arco di trionfo è davvero una particolarità architettonica da non perdere per la sua raffinatezza e singolarità, oltre che per lo spirito di pace che ne ispirò la costruzione.
Lo stile di questo arco è definito come mudejar, termine legato ai musulmani iberici che decisero di rimanere in queste zone senza far ritorno al loro paese d'origine.
Fu costruita per fungere da entrata all'EXPO del 1888 ad opera di Josep Vilaseca celebrando la vittoria dell'arte sulla guerra.
L'influenza araba è fortemente presente pur conservando nella parte inferiore gli scudi delle diverse provincie spagnole. Conserva ancora oggi quel gioco di forme e colori che intervallano laterizio e marmo, pareti lisce e altorilievi, statue di angeli e la scritta di benvenuto alle nazioni sulla parte superiore.

The Arc de Triomphe Barcelona is amazing! It intrigues by its location and its construction. It marked the entrance of the Universal Exhibition of 1888 and was completed just in time. It is in itself a small miracle. Built of red brick decorated here and there with white, it has a clumsy look but any air time slightly. He now sits on what is one of the most beautiful avenues in the city. Out of Ciutadella Park and the face is a bit like being on the Champs Elysées Catalan version. The light catches the stone is especially beautiful at sunset. Metro stop: Arc de Triomf on the line L1.

Cet Arc de Triomphe barcelonais est étonnant ! Il intrigue par son emplacement et par sa construction. Il marquait l'entrée de l'exposition universelle de 1888 et fut achevé juste à temps. Il est donc, en lui-même, un petit miracle. Construit de briques rouges ornées ci et là de blanc, il a une allure mastoc mais toute fois légèrement aérienne. Il trône aujourd'hui sur ce qui est l'une des plus belles avenues de la ville. Sortir du parc de la Ciutadella et l'affronter, c'est un peu comme se retrouver sur des Champs Elysées version catalane. La lumière qui accroche les pierres est particulièrement belle au coucher du soleil.

Métro arrêt : Arc de Triomf sur la ligne L1.

Aux champs elyses spanish

In a downtown neighborhood stands arc triumf (metro station of the same name), which marks the entrance to the park Ciutadella. It was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1888. Pink bricks and stones, it is extended by a large tree-lined driveway and original lamps. Place to walk for tourists but also for Barcelona gatherings, especially for events of all kinds. I suggest you walk down to the park and you lose there, it is a very pleasant walk

Aux champs elysées espagnols

Dans un quartier du centre ville se dresse l'arc de triumf (station de métro du même nom), qui marque l'entrée du parc de la Cuitadella.
Il a été construit pour l'exposition universelle de 1888.
De briques roses et de pierres, il est prolongé par une grande allée bordée d'arbres et de lampadaires originaux. Lieu de promenade pour les touristes mais également de rassemblements pour les barcelonais, notamment pour des manifestations en tout genre.
Je vous conseille de descendre cette promenade jusqu'au parc et de vous perdre là bas, c'est une promenade très charmante

Designed by architect Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas as the main entrance to the Universal Exposition of Barcelona in 1888. It is located between Paseo Lluís Companys and Passeig de San Juan. The brick structure neomudéjar inspired and with a height of 30 meters. Unlike other triumphal arches of a military nature, for some battle or something and something that does not seem to hold ... Barcelona has the largest civilian progress marked by the artistic, scientific and economic. This arc has been used as a target on occasion for popular races such as the Jean Bouin or Barcelona Marathon. It was restored in 1990.

La estructura ladrillo visto de inspiración neomudéjar y con una altura de 30 metros.
A diferencia de otros arcos de triunfo de carácter militar, por alguna batalla o algo así y cosa que no me parece para celebrar... el de Barcelona tiene un mayor carácter civil marcado por el progreso artístico, científico y económico. Este Arco ha sido utilizado como meta en alguna ocasión para carreras populares importantes como la Jean Bouin o la Maratón de Barcelona.
Fue restaurado en 1990.

As much as it is called triumphal arch, not commemorates a military victory, but it is a construction, and as such has details progeso scientific, artistic and economic. The arch dominates the avenue, and if we pass is interesting to watch.

Un arco monumental

Al lado del parque de la Ciudadela encontramos el Arco del Triunfo de Barcelona, construido en 1888 como puerta para la exposición universal de Barcelona.
Por mucho que se le llame arco del triunfo, no conmemora ninguna victoria militar, si no que es una construcción civil , y como tal tiene detalles del progeso científico, artístico y económico.
El arco domina la avenida, y si pasamos cerca es interesante de ver.

The triumphal arch of Barcelona was built by architect Josep Vilaseca for the Universal Exhibition of 1888. It is located off the Ciutadella Park. The arc is surrounded by emblems representing Spanish provinces, with Barcelona center holds the place of honor. This triumphal arch is much smaller than Paris, though his color reddish brick and stone sculptures, besides the driveway that leads dotted with palm trees, gives it its beautée.

L'arc est entouré de blasons représentant provinces espagnoles, avec Barcelone au centre détenant la place d'honneur. Cet arc de triomphe est beaucoup plus petit que celui de Paris, cependant sa couleur de briques rougeatres et ses sculptures en pierre, sans compter l'allée qui y mène parsemée de palmiers, lui donne toute sa beautée.

Triumphal arch

Well no, there is not only Paris that one can see a triumphal arch in Barcelona too! It was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1888 by architect Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas to be one of the main gates. Many sculptors also worked for the decor. You may like to read a very significant entry in the framework of the universal exhibition "Barcelona receives the nations" which is on the frieze facing north.

The barcelona triumphal arch

Less well known than Paris, the Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona is well worth a visit. Located just steps from the bus station in Barcelona Sant, we owe to the architect Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas. Unmistakable with its red rocks, dating from the late nineteenth century and is notable mainly for the beautiful frieze at the top.

L'arc de triomphe de barcelone

Moins connu que celui de Paris, l'arc de triomphe de Barcelone vaut tout de même le détour. Situé à deux pas de la gare routière de Barcelona Sant, on le doit à l'architecte Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas. Immanquable avec ses pierres de couleur rouge, il date de la fin du XIX e siècle et est remarquable surtout pour la très belle frise au sommet.
