Parc de la Ciutadella


 In 1869, the demolition of the military citadel, built a century earlier by Philip V, was highly significant aand marked the start of a boom-time for Barcelona with its sights firmly set on the 1888 Universal Exhibition. The result was a park which the architect Josep Fontseré adapted for the World Fair. Relics of the exhibition can still be seen today in the Parc de la Ciutadella, with buildings such as the Castell dels Tres Dragons, which occupies the original restaurant designed for the exhibition. Click here for more information
