Barcelona is a city with numerous beautiful parks and gardens. This page offers an overview of the best parks in Barcelona, such as Parc Guell, Parc de la Ciutadella, various gardens in Montjuic, the famous viewpoint Carmel Bunkers and many lesser known but stunning parks.
Garden: normally the grounds of a large house or public buildings and is a space with flowers, roses, shrubs and trees with lots of quiet places to sit on a bench and meditate, read or enjoy the open air.
Park: large open grassed space that will be divided by small gardens of flowers, roses and shrubs. These are great picnic spots, some with views overlooking the city.
Natural Park: wilderness of forests and mountains preserved for hiking, cycling and mountain sports. Catalunya has the best natural parcs in Spain because of the large bio-diversity. For information about hiking in Natural parks I have a seperate page about the best hiking routes.
In conclusion, this page focuses on parks and gardens within a city environment. They are a green oasis where you can go to escape the bustle of city life.
