Barcelona's Gardens

7 of the best

By Brian Gallagher 23.09.13

Autumn is a great time to be outdoors in Barcelona, while the last of the summer warmth slips away with each calendar page the longer shadows, warm breeze and late blooms generate a vibrant changing colour scheme making gardens the perfect venue for socialising or dining, not too warm not too cool. Heady with the smells of flower blossoms and cut grass (the perfect condiment for autumnal cuisine and drinks) nature is at its most spectacular just before the winter brings another cycle to a close. The tendency for summer to stretch well into autumn however make these gardens well worth investigating, whether for lunch, dinner or drinks these gardens are at their optimum well into November.

Here we present our selection of the city’s best gardens where food and cocktails are served, some are amongst the city’s best kept secrets.
