As in other parts of Montjuïc, a former quarry is the origin of this singular green space. Nearly tucked into the mountain, this typical English garden, one of the few examples in the city, is the height of romanticism, where nature spreads out across the landscape with reckless abandon, blocking out the sun in places. The abundance of exotic plants points to the scientific origin of the space. The seven-decades-old giant ash tree will leave you speechless.
Want more? On the other side of the park you’ll find a typical farmhouse, where volunteers help to organize activities for the public.
