About Montjuïc Botanical Gardens

The Botanical gardens, Barcelona, Jardí Botànic are situated on a mild slope of the Montjuïc Park, and contains plants from five regions of the world that have a Mediterranean climate (Australia, Chile, California, South Africa and the Mediterranean).

The Montjuïc Botanical Garden is part of the Barcelona Natural Sciences Museums, Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona, And the purpose of the Botanical garden is the conservation and display of collections of Mediterranean plants from all over the world.

The botanical gardens have about 1,500 different species of plants and trees. The garden of the Jardí Botànic offers a view of the city of Barcelona.

Note: The Montjuïc botanical garden should not be confused with the Montjuïc Historic Sensorial Botanical Garden behind MNAC. These are separate gardens in an abandoned quarry.

Montjuïc Botanical Gardens History

The Montjuïc Botanical Garden was inaugurated in 1999. I first visited the garden in 2006 and since then the plants and trees have become well established and grown considerably. The images in the gallery are from a couple of years ago in Spring.

Before this plot of land became a Botanical garden it was, up until the 80s a small town of squatter shacks until the residents were evicted before the reconstruction of the Olympic Stadium. All that remains of this town is the street named Can Valero which borders the Botanical Garden.

Visiting Montjuïc Botanical Gardens

This is a great place to take a book and wander round finding a quiet spot to relax and read, once you have finished exploring all the different types of plants and flowers.

The Best time to Visit Montjuïc Botanical Gardens is in Spring when all the plants are in flower.
