Arc de Triomf - arch monument
Arc del Triomf Barcelona. This arch monument was built as the entrance to the Barcelona 1888 Universal exhibition by the modernist architect "Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas" in a moorish revival style. This Barcelona landmark is located at the end of the Passeig de Lluís Companys, which starts at the Arc de Triomf and goes to the Parc de la Ciutadella. The stone sculpture on the front frieze is by Josep Reynés and is called "Barcelona rep les nacions" in Catalan, which means "Barcelona welcomes the nations." The opposite frieze contains a stone carving named "Recompense", a work from the earliest period of sculptor Josep Llimona. At the top of the arch you can see Barcelona's coat of arms and also that of all 49 other Spanish provinces, which is by Torquat Tassó and Antoni Vilanova. It is often the venue for public events and especially on the Catalunya national day 11th September
