Barcelona is a city full of beaches, museums, monuments… and green areas too. They are perfect places to relax at after a walking tour and all of them are well connected by subway or bus. In this post we mention the best parks in Barcelona so that you can add a nice break to your intense touristic program.

Park Güell: A colourful and magic green area

Park Güell is much more than a green area. It is a magnificent park designed by Antoni Gaudi in the early 20th century, so it is visited by tourists as a monument itself. Located in a high borough, from this park you will discover some of the best panoramic views over the city. Besides this, the decoration of the benches and the structures is so original that you will feel that you’re in a fairy tale.

Parc Ciutadella: The main park in Barcelona centre

Parc Ciutadella is another interesting park in Barcelona. In fact, it is the biggest park in downtown Barcelona and is visited by many people everyday including tourists before or after a tapas tour or a cultural itinerary through the historic streets of the city centre. It is a relaxing place, but it hosts some of the attractions of the city too including the Zoo of Barcelona so those who travel with kids can spend a half or a whole day meeting all kind of animals. Some of the buildings of Parc Ciutadella are really unique as well like the Castle of the Three Dragons designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner.
