Jardines de la Tamarita

This mansion oasis contains gardens, sculptures, and fountains just off the busy Plaça Kennedy in Sant Gervasi. 


There are plenty of benches to sit and sites to see in this former mansion garden turned public park. 

Hidden off of Plaça Kennedy in Sant Gervasi, this location is an absolute delight to discover over and over. Away from the hustle of the tourist center, this park often hosts public events or simply has locals just strolling around enjoying the surroundings. There are plenty of sculptures to search for and multiple fountains spread across the grounds.

The gardens are filled with unique trees and plants. There are often classes wandering around with instructors emphatically explaining the origins of the various natural elements. Take a rest and people-watch or read while relaxing next to one of the many fountains. There is also a hidden stairway that leads into the topiary.

Know Before You Go

The gardens are free and open to the public. Take the FGC Line 7 to Av. Tibidabo or take any city or tourist bus that stops at Plaça Kennedy.
