The Jardins Joan Maragall is located on Montjuic hill between between the MNAC and the Barcelona Olympic Stadium. Here you will see an ornate garden with an elegant landscape with avenues lined with huge lush trees, wide green grass areas and attractive colourful flower beds during summer. It also has several ponds, ornamental fountains, various sculptures and plants from French landscape gardening during the 20th century. That is why it is one of the most elegant gardens in Barcelona. Additionally, the gardens surround the Albéniz Palace, the official residence of Spain’s royal family on their visits to Barcelona.
Unfortunately, you cannot enter the Albéniz Palace and is only used for special occasions.
