Location: Arc de Triomf, Barcelona

At the end of Passeig Sant Joan is the Arc de Triomf, a monument designed by Josep Vilaseca y Casanovas built as the entrance to the site of the Universal Exhibition of 1888, the first event of its kind held on Spanish territory. The exhibition, which received more than one and a half million visitors, made it possible to project Barcelona as a city of industry and progress. Very near the Arc de Triomf is the Estació del Nord, one of the city’s main bus stations, and the Palau de Justicia, built in 1908 as the courthouse for the city.
