Palau Robert Gardens

The Palau Robert Gardens are an oasis of green amid the urban surroundings, and one of the Eixample district's most iconic natural treasures. Designed in the early twentieth century by the municipal gardener, Ramon Oliva, the gardens feature lush vegetation, harmoniously and elegantly arranged, making this a truly privileged space and yet one that is open to all in the heart of the city.

A gateway to peace and quiet

The chance escape for a moment from the hustle and bustle of city life into the tranquillity of nature offers itself on the corner of Passeig de Gràcia and Avinguda Diagonal. Here, there are some hidden gardens with a history spanning over 100 years: the gardens of the historic Palau Robert. The lush vegetation, numerous species of trees and plants, shade and tranquillity make these gardens in the Eixample neighbourhood a delightful spot in which to walk, read and relax.

The gardens were landscaped by the municipal gardener, Ramon Oliva, in the early twentieth century, when the palace was built for the Marquis of Robert. Over time, the building became the property of the Government of Catalonia, which then opened the gardens to the public.

An eclectic combination

The charm and taste characteristic of the gardens of early twentieth-century bourgeois houses are predominantin the Palau Robert Gardens. Combined with that are exotic plants, such as a fern from Tasmania, and contemporary architecture, including La Lluna (The Moon), a sculpture by the artist Kiku Mistu.
