View Cascada Monumental, a prominent landmark and fountain in Ciutadella Park originally built in 1881. Located at the northern corner of the park, this fountain features a triumphal arch, added after its inauguration due to heavy criticism that the structure wasn't grand enough. Several changes have been made to the monument over the years, including a renovation to make it resemble the Trevi Fountain and some additional work from a then-unknown Gaudi. Take a stroll around the nearby lake before visiting this significant piece of artistic and architectural history.

  • This fountain is quite lovely. No matter what angle you admire it from, it is very beautiful. Just a couple blocks away from the Arc so stop and check it out.  more »
  • A huge statue, combined with fountain, inside a wonderful park that you won't get enough. People, kids and families wonder in this place.  more »

  • Very nice park full of locals... Just be careful as there are also a lot of people trying to sell balloons, blankets etc... But you can feel the nature in the middle of City, see some wild green parrots (or maybe city parrots with numbers?). I liked it for a relaxing walk.
  • We strolled here one evening at sunset and the light of it illuminating the golden chariot atop the cascade was breathtaking. My photo does not do it justice but still takes my breath away when I look at it. The park is beautiful anytime but if you can arrange to be at this spot on a sunny sunset you will not be disappointed.
