Spring is here, an ideal season for enjoying pleasant temperatures and the fresh air in Barcelona. Luckily, Barcelona offers us many appealing ways for spending an enjoyable day discovering some of its most well-known spots. Will you come with us?
Montjuich: a fresh air green zone
With its height of 185 metres, the mountain of Montjuich is one of the green sources of fresh air for Barcelona. In fact, the characteristic cliff-like shape sinking into the sea, has been the profile and symbol of the city since Antiquity and is a privileged balcony over Barcelona.
The Labyrinth Park: outdoor enjoyment
This park is without doubt the green jewel of the district of Horta-Guinardó. Designed in 1792 by the Italian engineer Domenico Bagutti, it is the oldest garden of all those in Barcelona and is an outstanding example of cultured and well looked after gardens.
On total there are 55 partially landscaped hectares following the neoclassic trend of the time. Even so, the wooded character of the greater part of the park gives it an air of romanticism full of corners to discover, some decorated with mythological sculptures.
The Golden Square: an architectural symbol
No better way to finish off this spring tour than by discovering the area known as the Golden Square. It is the area of the Eixample which runs between the streets of Aribau and Passeig de San Joan, around Passeig de Gràcia. This was the main artery of the new Eixample which was born from 1860 onwards, when the walls, which were stifling the old city of Barcelona, were knocked down.
This is an ideal tour for starting to decide at which restaurants in Barcelona we will enjoy a 100% Mediterranean menu. If your choice is El Principal de l’Eixample you should know that it is an elegant restaurant with a menu based on Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine with contemporary touches. Book your table now!
