It was built un 19th century to commemorate some colonial Spanish victories in North Africa. Plain, built with bricks and in an area with nothing more to see or visit. Don't waste your time here.

Very nice sight to walk around and have great pictures! You can start with the arc and then continue to Parc de la Cuitadella, which make it great combination!

Had been here previously with my eldest but was lucky enough to come back with my youngest. Such a friendly area. Managed several photos and took photos for other passers by too. Love the architecture of the area. Daughter loved it here.

Having visited the arc a couple of years ago, we enjoyed the current visit a bit more, as the entire boulevard and the arc itself looked much nicer in the lite rain. It's still not overwhelmingly exciting, but still - worth a visit.

We walked around here on a nice sunny day in January. Lots of people and buskers to watch. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine.

I didn’t expect it so big, it’s very imposant, and has a interesting history. We were there when it was raining so there wasn’t a lot of people.

The area around the Arc de Triomf is great for a walk at any time of the day and evening. It is usually busy with locals and tourists but is spacious so not oppressive. It is a place where people can enjoy themselves, sit, stroll...More

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs

During our travels in Barcelona, we had no indication of a market at the Arc de Triomf. However we did see energetic kids on skateboards, an acrobat on roller skates and families enjoying the sunshine.
