Parc de la Ciutadella is no ordinary park. Originally the site of a military citadel that was destroyed in 1869, the space was then adapted to meet the needs of Barcelona's bid for the 1888 World Fair. Relics of the exhibition can still be seen today from buildings such as the Castell dels Tres Dragons, which occupies the original restaurant designed for the exhibition by Domènech i Montaner, the waterfall and lake, designed by Fontseré, and the beautiful plant house, the Umbracle, and glass house, the Hivernacle.
