Barcelona is a city with a number of beautiful parks. The city has more to offer than just the world-famous Park Güell. This page offers an overview of the most popular parks in Barcelona, such as the Parc de la Ciutadella, the parc de Montjuïc, and the beautiful viewpoint Bunkers del Carmel.
The best one by far is the famous Park Güell. It's Gaudí's park with the salamander and the mosaic benches. This park definitely has to be part of your city break. Do book your tickets in advance, as this part of the park is no longer free.
The largest park in the city centre of Barcelona dates back to the 1888 World Fair with the Font de Cascada, the Arc de Triomf, and the zoo.
Montjuïc hill has many green parks as well as the sights from the Olympics and the World Fair. The castle of Palau Nacional offers you a fantastic view.
Barcelona's zoo is located in the Parc de la Ciutadella. Fun for all ages.
The Montjuic has the 'Jardi Botanic'; Barcelona's botanical gardens
Take the funicular to the top of the Tibidabo mountain to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view. There's also a small amusement park for the little ones.
On the edge of the city, you can find the 'Parc del Laberint d'Horta'; a fun green park for kids with a challenging maze in the centre.
Not a park, but it is an area open to the public consisting of a four-kilometre stretch of coastline, divided over five beaches. Great for walking or running.
The Turó de la Rovira, the best 360-degree viewpoint over Barcelona at the Bunkers del Carmel. The uphill climb is more than worth the effort!
Parc de Miro

Parc d'Espanya Industrial
While riding the Hop-on-hop-off bus, you will see this park's unusual lighthouses. If you skip it, you won't miss much about this park.
