Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf is near the entrance of the Parc de la Ciutadella (Citadel Park), a majestic bucolic park. It was built in 1880 for Barcelona’s World’s Fair, and it has several tracks and benches where you can spend a nice time with your family, enjoying Barcelona’s outdoors.

Have you decided to stay in the apartments near Arc de Triomf? You can be sure that you will be in a relaxing place! Besides, you’ll be a few walking minutes from the centre of Barcelona.
The Parc de la Ciutadella is located in the ancient neighbourhood of la Ribera, nowadays called the neighbourhood of El Born
. The neighbours of El Born are usually young couples or students, or professionals who are just going to stay in Barcelona for a while. You can mingle with them during your stay in the apartments near Arc de Triomf!
Most of the surface of this neighbourhood is for pedestrian, and there is a relaxing atmosphere far away from the noises of traffic. Despite this, there you will find many buildings with an international tourist interest, such as the basilica of Santa Maria del Mar or the Picasso Museum. This is why you will find tourists at all times of the day.
Arc de Triomf is located just a few steps from the two main shopping areas in the centre of Barcelona: Portal de l’Àngel and Passeig del Born. We recommend to visit both of them, since the types of shops you will find in each of them are totally different. And you will be able to go to either of them from the apartments near Arc de Triomf!
On one hand, we have Passeig del Born. Here, you will be able to go to many local little shops where you can buy vintage clothing or accessories. It is an ideal place to escape from the classical big brands, and to do some alternative shopping.
On the other hand, if you prefer to go to the main clothing shops with reasonable prices, like Zara, Pull&Bear or Intimissimi, you can do so in Portal de l’Àngel. Besides, in this avenue, famous for being a shopping area, you will find a department store El Corte Inglés with 4 floors and high-quality brands.
If you want to move around the neighbourhood that hosts the apartments near Arc de Triomf, we recommend to do so by foot. Very close to this monument, you will find the Parc de la Ciutadella, an outdoors space where you can enjoy a day with the whole family, and where cars are not allowed to enter.
Besides, to access the neighbourhood of El Born, you should consider that most streets are exclusively for pedestrian and that they respect the old medieval structure, so it’s better not to go with public or private transport during your stay in the apartments near Arc de Triomf.
To arrive to Arc de Triomf, you can walk from Plaça Catalunya or from the neighbourhood of El Born. It’s located in Passeig Sant Joan and the closest metro stop is the one with the same name (Arc de Triomf, L1).
Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf is a perfect place to spend a day with the whole family. You can enjoy the great pedestrian area created for locals and tourists, thanks to the tracks to skate or ride a bike.
Besides, it is right next to the Parc de la Ciutadella, where you will find areas with gardens and pools so you can have some family time. There you will also find the Barcelona Zoo, where you will be able to learn about several species of terrestrial and marine animals.
The apartments near Arc de Triomf are located near several restaurants that offer both local and international cuisine. The area is known for being inhabited by the Chinese community, so there are many excellent Chinese restaurants nearby.
