The gardens at Palauet Albéniz

A visit to the Gardens of Joan Maragall

The gardens, which surround Palauet Albéniz up on Montjuïc, can be visited at weekends and on public holidays.

Barcelona is a city with a wealth of public gardens to visit and a case in point is the one surrounding Palauet Albéniz up on Montjuïc, which is known as Jardins de Joan Maragall. Lying between the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium and Palau Nacional, the mansion house was built for the International Exhibition of Barcelona in 1929 and was designed by Jean Claude Nicolas Forestier.

When strolling around the park you can see some thirty sculptures from different periods by Frederic Marès, Eulàlia Fàbregas de Sentmenat, Joan Rebull, Enric Monjo and Josep Viladomat, among others, together with a number of ornamental fountains. In fact, one of the attractions of the visit is to see two of these fountains, both by Lluïsa Granero, known as Font Angelots Estany Magnoliers and Font Jardins de Joan Maragall, which start working at 11am and 2pm. In total, there are more than four hectares of gardens, an oasis of peace with lindens, magnolias, pines, cypresses, cedars, olive trees, holm oaks, owls, orange trees and poplars that form elegant wooded avenues, together with extensive lawns and flower beds.
