Arc de Triomf monument

  • # Architecture

The arc was built in commemoration of the 1888 Universal Exposition, where it served as the port of access to the fairgrounds. The structural decorations were created by Josep Reynés, Josep Llimona, Antoni Vilanova, Torquat Tasso, Manuel Fuxà y Pere Carbonell.

The Arc de Triomf originated in Roman architecture, erected initially to commemorate a battle victory. The arc in Barcelona has a much more civil nature, symbolizing instead artistic, scientific, and economic progress.
