The Winter Hall of the Parc de la Ciutadella is reopened 16 years after being closed. Last December 2023, after 15 months of work, it reopened its doors to the public, who asked to recover it and return its shine from the past.
It is located on Passeig de Picasso, 7 (Ciutat Vella). Temember that Aerobús stops in Plaça Espanya, Urgell, or in Plaça Catalunya (end of route), where you can take the L1 of the metro to Arc de Triomf, and walk 8 to get there.
The Winter Hall was built 135 years ago by Josep Amargós i Samaranch, a few years full of art and nature, in which it was an integral part of the Universal Exhibition of 1888, and which will mean that this facility is currently protected as a Cultural Asset of Local Interest. It is a heritage space dedicated to the preservation of nature and biodiversity.
