Brimming with plant life and set atop Barcelona’s Montjuic Hill, Jardin Botanico de Barcelona affords visitors a chance to explore both the outdoors and a variety of warm-weather flora. The gardens, founded in 1999, house a collection of plants from Mediterranean climates around the world. Explore the gardens by either following a demarcated route or setting off on your own. Admire the vast array of species, arranged by region, as you make your way up and down the hill.

  • This is a botanical garden on the Hill of Montjuic. There are a lot of plants in the garden with cactus and Japan does not see. Botanical Gardens and observing slow walk, and why you feel elegant.

  • Super botanical garden where you can discover the flora of many parts of the world. It is a place ideal for taking beautiful photos a light or a cloudy day. Above all do not cut plants!

  • It is easy to locate within the garden. It has clear signage and two routes to choose (a long and another short). It has very nice spaces and feels quite quiet in this place, is a space suitable for meditation. Without a doubt, best of all is the exhibition of bonsai and responsible care which is quite gentle. However, there is not an optimal use of the building to remain inside of the garden; He is supposed to be a museum but the truth there is nothing to do. There is also a cafeteria service and this is regrettable, on the machines I could not buy coffee. It is a beautiful and inspiring place but can be improved.

  • Beatiful garden with flowers and trees from other continents. (Part with bonsai is opened ony ať weekend and holiday )
  • I was not that impressed with the botanic gardens. It seems more fitting for locals to go here to learn about the flora of other parts of the world. It also costs money to enter.
  • A Hidden Gem A bit off the beaten track but a lovely spot for a leisurely stroll with panoramic views of the city and surrounds. The gardens in springtime - the smells and flowers and bees and butterflies - are really starting to come into their own now, but even in winter there is plenty to see. Interesting "Cabinet of Curiosities" exhibition also worth a look. Free on the first Sunday of the month. Bus #13 will drop you right at the front entrance (behind the Olympic Stadium.)
  • Plenty of trees and plants beautifully arranged to enjoy in a quiet walk at Montjuich mountain. I love this garden quietness, and easy to walk paths. It lacks the romanticism of the old classic jardi botanic but you can visit both the same day! A very nice addition to the gardens in Montjuich
  • Beautiful lace, if you are near the Olympic stadium it's well worth a visit
