Enjoy a nice day out in this huge city park that offers plenty of attractions. The park includes a lake, a zoo, the Parliament of Catalonia and the Museum of Natural Science consisting of a museum of zoology and a museum of geology.
The most famous attraction of Park de la Ciutadella is the monumental waterfall called La Cascada. Located opposite to the lake, it was built for the 1888 Universal exhibition by the architect Josep Fontseré with a little help from Antoni Gaudí, who was still an unknown student at that time. The design is said to be loosely based on the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
You can row boats on the lake or wander around and admire the sculptures. The most significant piece of art is definitely the replica of Josep Llimona’s beautiful sculpture "Desconsol“. Your kids will love to climb the large stone sculpture of mammoth, which can be found next to the waterfall.
