You’ll find a beautiful collection of Mediterranean plants from across the globe at Barcelona’s Jardí Botànic. With some of the best views of Barcelona, it’s the perfect place to go for a walk and disconnect from the city without ever leaving it.
Although these particular gardens have only been open for ten years, Catalonia has a long history of botanical culture. In 1986, the construction of accesses to the new Olympic facilities seriously affected the stability of the Historical Botanical Garden, so it was moved to this location in 1999, where it was firmly established as a significant point of reference for the conservation of Mediterranean flora.
Within its carefully acclimatised perimeters, the gardens boast an impressive range of plants from different regions of Australia, Africa, Chile, California and many other countries. The focus is on conservation; several endangered species are displayed to educate the visitor about the environment’s fragility. No two visits will ever feel the same as the plants are dynamic and ever changing!
