Lois Ronberg says:
"Visitors to the 1888 Universal Exposition in Barcelona must have felt most welcome as they walked up to and under the Arc de Triomf (Triumphal Arch). That is because it’s lovely stone carvings on one side offer a warm welcome to the city and on the other side a prize-giving ceremony is there for all to see. I’ve seen some other Arcs and they all seem to be white or cream but this wonderful edifice is made of millions of red bricks which have held their fascinating colour since being erected all those years ago. There is a Moorish theme to this arc which has four main pillars and statues of women depicting of all things - fame. The crowning glory is the city’s coat of arms and apparently there are other carvings and things to include the other 49 Spanish provinces. I have to admit to being quite surprised when we turned a corner and saw this Barcelona landmark for the first time. I had no idea it was there and have to say the colour does draw you in to such a large construction of so many bricks. The arc is dominant on the wide promenade which you can walk after a visit to the Parc de la Ciutadella and head towards the hills and the bus depot. There are many trees and you can sit a while, all along the pedestrian way which includes the Arc. We stayed just around the corner from the Arc de Triomf and went under or past it each day as we walked around wonderful, exciting and thriving Barcelona. We included daily visits to La Seu Cathedral, Sagrada Familia and of course to the ‘’must see and enjoy’‘ Las Ramblas. As you can see in the picture here, this Arc de Triomf is large, it is interesting and worthy of your consideration if you like seeing structures which last in the memory for years to come."
