Go, if you are nearby!

A peaceful place for a stroll. Impressive site, but obviously not as amazing as the one in Paris. If you are in the neighborhood, I'd stop by to see it.

The Arc itself is not so exciting. It's small and you can't enter the building. But the area in front of it is full of life. You can see here many locals and tourists wandering and enjoying their lives.

It is not as big as the one in Paris but it is impressive in it's own right. I enjoyed photographing this imposing structure and walking around it to admire beautiful shape and form.

It may not be top of the list of things to see in Barcelona, especially compared to the glory of all things Gaudi, but it's still pleasing to the eye and impressive. The area around it is pleasant to walk around so it's a good stopping off point if you're exploring

My wife thought I was joking when I said we should go to see the Arc de Triomf! Obviously not the Paris one!! It's a bizarre architecture with mixed materials, including red brick by the look of it. Worth a visit and there's a pleasant pedestrianised area to mooch about in. When we were there, there were street performers using... More

The Arc de Triomf was interesting with lots of tourist walking down the pathway. There were a fews tree performers also on the pathway entertaining the people. Interesting but not the highlight of my trip to Barcelona

It seem like there was a lot of activity here street performers, hang out areas for teenagers, as well as locals spending time with their pets. While leaving we noticed they are setting up for an event it seems like this area is very popular to tourist as well as the locals. Such a beautiful monument, sometimes I can't fathom... More

The area around the Arc de Triomf is very nice. Wide open spaces amidst the city, space for walking, cycling, picnicking. I probably wouldn't go looking for it, but it was lovely to find.

Parrots make themselves known as they cry out to one another in a little oasis attached to a lovely section of Barca to investigate on foot. Picasso museum is nearby .its just a fun vibe you get when you visit this area.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
