BARCELONA: CERVANTES PARK



In Pedralbes, the Parc de Cervantes greets us as we enter Barcelona from the Avinguda Diagonal. The park contains a beautiful collection of roses set out along an unusual botanical trail featuring varieties in all shapes and colours from every continent of the world. 

Since the year 2001, the park has hosted an international rose show featuring new species which are added to its multicoloured collection, which now includes 245 different varieties and 10,000 rose bushes.

In addition to the rose garden, the Parc de Cervantes offers extensive grassy areas which are ideal for jogging, cycling, gymnastics or just people-watching in the heart of Pedralbes neighbourhood.
