Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is one of the fewer known of Gaudi's works, but also well worth a visit! The audioguide is very clear and insightful, and this little hidden gem has quite its own charm.

    The huge Arc de Triomf was built to serve as the main access gate for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair. It would have certqinly provided a grand entrance to the exhibition. But couldn't they have come up with an original idea without copying the famous Arch in Paris?

    Impressive monument to the explorer who lost his way enroute to India. The monument includes a grand carved base, and a 60-meter column with statue of Columbus at the top. Located at the end of Las Ramblas near the waterfront. The monument was built for the Barcelona Exhibition of 1888.

    This was the highlight of the Parc de la Ciutadella for me. It was significantly bigger than I thought it would be, with so many intricate details to look at. The emergency measures caused by the ongoing drought meant the fountains were not operating, but it was still amazing to behold. A lovely place to take pictures.

    It's a curious and attractive outdoor scuplture in the middle of one of the big walking streets in the old town. Modern, attractive.

    Montserrat has lots to offer: spectacular mountain scenery, hiking trails, a religious monastery/abbey/basilica and iconic Black Madonna image, a cog-wheel train, funicular, cable car, shops, and restaurants. A great place for an easy day-trip from Barcelona (by bus, car, or train).

    I saw this while running through the park one morning. There are several other statues in the park as well, but I would say this is the main one.

    Used to be an advertisement for the "Gambrinus" restaurant - the restaurant is gone the Shrimp designed by Javier Mariscal is till there.
    As you walk the waterfront on the Passeig de Colom - you will sooner or later find it - as long as you go towards the Port Vell area - or back from that direction.
    It is interesting and funny in the same time- since the municipality of Barcelona decided to keep it there - although the restaurant doesn't exist anymore.
    Over the year it became a sort of a landmark - so when you are walking in the area - for sure it is worth a few pics.

    By the side of the magical fountain you will find the Four Columns. The four Ionic columns originally created by Josep Puigi Cadafalch in Barcelona, Spain. They were erected in 1919.

    Located in the Plaza de Catalunya, this statue is next to the Hard Rock Cafe. There's really nothing interesting about it, but you can't miss it...

    Nice way to reuse some old buoys. Sculptures were placed on top of the buoys, depicting a man watching the stars.
    They can be seen while walking over the wooden walkway toward Maremagnum shopping center. Some benches are available to sit and enjoy the view.

    El Toro Pensador is the unusual sculpture of a very thoughtful Bull! Barcelona is full of beautiful sculptures, many of them in animal form, and this one is no exception. The interesting thing here is that at the other end of Las Rambla there sits another animal sculpture (the Flirty Giraffe), and it seems as if the two animals will soon start to want to come closer to each other; but you will have to meet both animals in order to understand the connection.

    Interesting scultpture showing a Giraffe in an flirty pose, located at the start of the Rambla street, worth a look while talking a walk in the area. There is also a second one at the other end of the Rambla street.

    This monument stands in tribute to Frederic Soler, a Spanish and Catalan poet and playwright who wrote primarily in Catalan. This beautiful monument to Frederic Soler is located in front of the Teater Principal in Plaça del Teatre, near the southern end of La Rambla.

    This monument features a larger than life statue of Soler seated throne like with his crossed legs, facing to his right with an expression of deep thought. The pedestal is more elaborate than is usual and looks a little like an architectural column and richly decorated with floral motifs of leafs. The pedestal is also inscribed with the words "Homenatge a Frederic Soler i Hubert "Serafi Pitarra" (1839-1895).
