Be sure to pay special attention to the unique design, which is based on Moorish architecture! It is this very fact that sets it apart from the Arc de Triomf in Paris!

This is a really spectacular public space. The boulevard is always full of activity, performances, and people relaxing. Safely segregated bicycle lanes.

Пройдясь от ТРИУМФАЛЬНОЙ АРКИ вниз по аллее вы попадаете в прекрасный парк с озерцами и огромным, красивейшим фонтаном, а так же есть крытая оранжерея с лавочками, где можно спрятаться от жары))

A majestic structure parked in a beautiful district. Explore the gardens of the citadel before/after appreciating the arc in all it's glory. A beautiful district to go for a run through, too.
