Set on a gentle slope in Montjuïc Park, Barcelona Botanical Garden offers visitors a different walk each season of the year through the plant life from five regions of the world with a Mediterranean climate.
The Garden's function is to preserve and inform about collections of Mediterranean plants from all over the world. Its main objectives include the preservation and documentation of the natural heritage of Catalonia, at the same time as acting as a disseminator of botanical and naturalist culture and promoting knowledge about and respect for nature. From the scientific point of view, the Garden receives the support of the Barcelona Botanical Institute, a mixed research centre (Barcelona City Council - CSIC) dedicated to botanical research. This centre, with renowned prestige, has a significant library and one of the largest herbariums in Catalonia.
