Botanic Gardens Barcelona, Spain.
One sunny Sunday morning I found myself with nothing planned and decided to make a visit the Barcelona botanic gardens called Jardí Botànic which are only about 10 minutes walk from the Olympic Stadium.

I had a little difficulty finding the entrance to the gardens because it is not that well signposted however we have provided a map below so hopefully you won't have the same difficulties I had finding the way there.

The gardens offer an oasis of peace, tranquillity and beauty that I can't put into words. Plants are truly little miracle workers, and here you will see them in all their glory. You will see plants creating flowers with stunningly vivid colours so pure I felt mesmerized. If you take the time to really look at each flower and not just glance at them, you will see the depth of pure natural colour crimsons, oranges, yellows along with other plants that create subtle colours like soft muted purples.

Colours are not the only thing you will marvel at. The air in the different zones of the Botanic gardens was filled with natural perfumes, sweet, soft, lemon, lavender and honey, scents that gave the colours an added dimension of reality.

The central part of the Botanic Gardens has a "bee house". At first I could only hear a gentle buzz but later I saw them collecting the nectar from the pink blossoms in the trees.

My impression of bees up until this point had been that of noisy, frenetic creatures however these bees seemed to hardly make a sound, and they seemed so very peaceful as they went about their duties in a laid back manner.

After only a few minutes of walking around the Botanic Gardens I felt I had entered a Zen monastery, calm and peace and cleanliness. It is clear that the caretakers of these botanic gardens truly love these plants.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.
