Parc de la Ciutadella

A public park in Barcelona, Parc de la Ciutadella, holds the distinction of being one of the oldest parks in the city. A triumphal arch modeled after the famous Trevi Fountain in Rome sits beside a lake in the park. A figure of Venus basks in her place of glory, while Aurora, the Roman goddess of dawn, rides her four golden steeds and surveys one and all.
