Monumental bullring was built in 1914 and is the world’s only Art-Nouveau bullring. It was the last active bullring in Catalonia that was closed in 2011 because bullfighting was banned by the Parliament of Catalonia. The building is dedicated to the small bullfighting museum.

Arc de Triomf was built as the gateway to the 1888 Universal Exhibition. The architect Josep Vilaseca designed the monument as an allegory of Barcelona’s respect for the nations and provinces taking part in the exhibition.
