Visita Barcelona, Arco de triunfo

Arco del Triunfo

Back in 1888, Barcelona held the World Expo. As an entrance to the fair, located in the Parc de la Ciutadella, stood the Arc de Triomf (Triumphal Arch), a monument of classical shape and proportions, but with sculptural and decorative motifs full of symbolism, making it one of the icons of the city.

 

The arch was the main feature in the then Sant Joan venue, a promenade of sorts that led to the Expo fair in the Parc de la Ciutadella. The architect, Josep Vilaseca, conceived the idea of merging the classical aspect of the monument representing the respect Barcelona had for the nations and provinces that participated, with the neo-mudéjar dressing of the arch, a trendy style back then. The combination of exposed brick and the friezes surrounding the main structure of the arch, make this monument a singularly beautiful piece.

 

A closer look at this portal helps us understand it as the entrance to modernity for Barcelona in the late nineteenth century. The reliefs on the sides show agriculture and industry on one side, and commerce and arts on the other. On top of it all, the coats of arms of 49 Spanish provinces, with that of Barcelona in the centre.

 

To enjoy the views, walk up the Passeig Lluís Companys, very close to the Zoo, making it a perfect excuse to visit the Parc de la Ciutadella.
