Many parks and squares in Barcelona are true oases of calm in an otherwise noisy, sometimes hectic city that is always on the move.
By "parks and squares" we mean classic green spaces, squares in the district center, the zoo, the Ramblas, the various markets, the beach and much more.
The green areas in Barcelona are lovingly cared for. On the squares and parks, which are real sights, young and old meet for a chat, a rest, a game of chess or to play boules together. Or just to read a good book in peace under a shady tree.
Some parks, such as Park Güell, are a "must" for any trip to Barcelona. You should also have seen places like the Mercat de Boqueria, the largest market hall in Barcelona or the view from Tibidabo.
The parks and squares in Barcelona
Do the parks and squares cost admission?
Most are open to the public and entry is free. But a few have an entrance fee: the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Park Güell, the zoo and the Tibidabo amusement park. But they are worth it!
Why visit the parks and squares
There are places you will definitely pass by, such as the Plaça Catalunya transport hub. You should consciously plan a visit to others: Park Güell is incredibly beautiful, you have a great view and you can take a leisurely stroll in the countryside. Here we have presented the parks and squares, we find all of them interesting. We find the combination "great view with a beautiful park" very tempting to stay there for a while. We also love the Plaça Reial, a beautiful square with good restaurants and bars on the edge.
