    It's very unique but not much of a "wow"factor

    I just happened to stumble across this when walking in the park. The park itself is very lovely, and it was very nice to see this too. It's not as huge as photos lead it to be, but nonetheless, it's s...

Additional Information

Introduction

The Arc de Triomf is a fake triumphal arch constructed in Barcelona, Spain for the 1888 Universal Exposition held in the city. The arch functions as the ceremonial entrance to the expo. It is constructed of red brick in the Moorish Revival style common to Spain. Both faces of the arch feature elaborate friezes welcoming visitors to the city. The Arc de Triomf should not be confused with the Arc de Triomphe, a larger and more famous triumphal arch in Paris, France.
