Parks

Parc de la Ciutadella

Parc de la Ciutadella

Relics of the exhibition can still be seen today in the Parc de la Ciutadella, with 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. Barcelona Zoo has stood on the other side of the park since 1892. The Catalan Parliament stands in the parade ground, in the former military arsenal of the citadel. Nearby, you can see a replica of Josep Llimona"s beautiful sculpture "El desconsol" (Distress), which is one of the most important pieces of public art in the park.
Parc de Joan Miró

Parc de Joan Miró

This large park with lots of open space is also known as the Parc l"Escorxador (so named because it stands on the site of the old municipal slaughterhouse: escorxador in Catalan) and is used by visitors and locals from Barcelona"s Eixample Esquerra to relax. This great urban "lung", full of possibilities, is located at the south-west end of the neighbourhood and is the perfect appetiser before you begin exploring the monumental Plaça Espanya.

Parc de Collserola

Behind Tibidabo"s iconic outline, there lies a wealth of woodland and fields: a protected park where a wide variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna brings us into contact with nature just 15 minutes away from the bustling city. This is Barcelona"s great green "lung"
Park Güell

Park Güell

Gaudí better encapsulates the complete and perfect harmony of nature and architecture than Barcelona"s Park Güell. Initially designed as an English-style garden-city – hence the name Park – it eventually became Barcelona"s most unusual public park.
Parc del Laberint

Parc del Laberint

There is no doubt that this park is the green jewel of the Horta and Guinardó district. It was designed in 1792 by the Italian engineer Domenico Bagutti, as an initiative of the owner of the estate Joan Desvalls, the Marquis of Llupià and Alfarràs.
