Reading through the previous reviews it seems most people have got it wrong as to what this actually is. To clarify, there is a park called "Parc de la Ciutadella" and within that park are several monuments, statues, a very large lake and a stand...More

This is a beautiful replica of a famous sculpture, located in the middle of a pond in a tranquil area of the park. The figure is both provocative and innocent at the same time, which makes for a gorgeous photo-op.

If you are around you can stop by, but do not move just to see it. It's a small park, quite and beautiful. The Catalan parliament is just around so it's 2x1. I like how different it is from the Ciutadella park which is full...More

The park is great for morning walks/running, and has a lot of nice plants and buildings. Located close to the beach, the park offers peace and quiet.

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
