A tranquil place, a world apart, where the only sounds you can hear are the chirping of birds and splash of water flowing from the ornamental fountains.
When you enter these gardens you get the impression they were meant for a king. And they were, having been created for Spain’s king at the start of the 20th century. The Jardins de Joan Maragall are extremely elegant, with tree-lined avenues, broad expanses of grass, broderie flowerbeds, ornamental fountains, numerous outdoor sculptures and a small palace that was, and still is, a royal residence.
These tranquil gardens are a world apart, where the only sounds you can hear are the chirping of birds and splash of water flowing from the ornamental fountains. If you go in through the gate on Avinguda de l’Estadi, the first thing you will see are the large grass parterres with extremely tall trees. Gentle, stone-bordered slopes gradually descend to the heart of the gardens: the Palauet Albéniz.
