Alternative Creative Youth Home Hostel - Youth Hostel in Barcelona center recommends seeing...

Arc de Triomf
Arc de Triomf
This beautiful arch was built for the 1888 Universal Exposition, which took place at the Parc de la Ciutadella. The Arc de Triomf, situated at the end of a wide promenade, served as the exposition's main entrance.
The design by Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas stands out from other well-known arches - in particular the Arc de Triomf  in Paris - by its colorful brickwork in mudéjar style, a style which has its origins in Moorish architecture. The arch is decorated with stone carvings. The front frieze by Josep Reynés shows the city of Barcelona welcoming visitors. The other side, designed by Josep Llimona shows a prize-giving ceremony.
