Los Jardines de Muñoz Ramonet (Muntaner, 282), in the district of Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, open their doors every Saturday and Sunday until March when works on the gardens begin to renovate and provide better accessibility, thanks to the pressure from neighbours. The grounds are of great historical value, and were designed in 1916 by Jean Claude Nicolás Forestier as commissioned by the Marquis of Alella. In 1933 part of the property was sold to build housing, doing away with a big part of the gardens. After Julio Muñoz Ramonet became owner of the property, the gardens were remodeled, between 1956 and 1957 by Joan Mirambell, which was the last time they were improved. The grounds of the Muñoz Ramonet estate are an important addition to the city's historic gardens of as a well-preserved example of the gardens of the 20th-century Barcelona bourgeoisie.
