Barcelona would not be Barcelona without its Mediterranean nature: bathed by four kilometres of beaches and flanked by the parks of Montjuïc and the Collserola, an immense green massif with incredible biodiversity, the city offers infinite and irresistible possibilities for experiencing it in the open air.
Barcelona has nature on offer all year round. Particularly in the summer, but also for a good part of the spring and autumn, the city's characteristic deep blue skies invite us to bathe in the sun and the sea. There are various beaches to choose from: some are calmer, for families and away from the centre, while others are more crowded and livelier, close to restaurants and party locales. There are also areas for naturists and beaches where you can play volleyball or chuck a Frisbee around.
This is Barcelona: a generous host that offers only the best at every turn. There are green-swathed parks where you can get away from the urban bustle, like Ciutadella, Oreneta, Cervantes, Turó Park, Tres Turons and many others, there are the Collserola woodlands, a sensory spectacle at any time of the year, and there are unimaginable hidden spots, perfect for a picnic with friends or family. On top of this you can see and understand nature in other places in the city, like the Zoo, the Museu Blau natural history museum, the Aquàrium and the Jardí Botànic, the botanical gardens. Ideal for children and anyone else who is still a kid inside.
