The Archof Triumph in Barcelona Jul 20, 2008
As every big city Barcelona has the Arch of Triumph too - this arch is built as the entrance to the Universal Exposition at 1888. which took place at the Parc de la Ciutadella.The arch is built with colorful brickwork in mudejar style (the Arab-Christian art - Moorish architecture - which developed after the 12th century).The arch is decorated with stone carvings. The front frieze shows the city of Barcelona welcoming visitors, and the other side shows a prize-giving ceremony.The crown of the arch is adorned with a stone carving of the Coat of Arms of Barcelona.All the other Spanish provinces are represented as well on either side of the crown. The arch is also adorned with twelve statues of women, symbolizing fame.

With a short walk from the Parc de la Ciutadella you just can't miss this great monument.
