The Park of Santa Amelia, or Villa Amelia as it’s called in reality, is one of our favorite parks of Barcelona. We would say even that it’s one of the best parks in Barcelona to go with children.
Formerly the gardens belonged to the family Girona who were using it as a summer holiday place. Nowadays it belongs to the Town hall of Barcelona and therefore it’s of free entrance.
Only by entering you get astonished by the amount of plants and by how well maintaned they are.
We also love it because it has a terrace with a bar where you can have an aperitif, or even eat and is pleasant both in winter as in summer.
On the other side of the street, are the gardens of Villa Cecilia which we will discuss it soon in another post.
Direction: Calle Santa Amèlia, Eduardo Conde o Manuel de Falla
It’s open the whole year from 10h and then.
