Botanical Gardens website

Barcelona's Botanical Gardens are housed on the slopes of Montjuic hill, overlooking the Olympic Stadium. It features plants from countries around the world with a Mediterranean climate. Every year, there are new plants added to the grounds, which means every visit to the Botanical Gardens is slightly different. Currently, there are over 1,350 different plant species, although the plan is to eventually showcase more than 4,000 species. The plants are organised geographically by the regions that they come from. This area hasn't always been a garden. From the 1940s up until the 70s, this space was a shanty town, then an urban landfill. Luckily, the new garden is a much more beautiful replacement, and is a great stop on a tour of Montjuic. If you don't fancy walking up Montjuic's hillside, there are three buses that will take you to the Barcelona Botanical Gardens - numbers 13, 55, and 150. Can't get enough of the green stuff? Check out our complete guide to the city's parks.
