Parc de la Ciutadella

We refer to the largest green area in all of Barcelona. One of the quintessential parks in Barcelona that has a lot of history under its belt and is perfect for youth gatherings.

Therefore, if you are looking to study in a casual and pleasant way with a touch of nature, come to the Ciutadella park, either with a blanket to find a good place on the lawn or in the shade of a tree.

Then you just have to take out your books, your notes or your computer and enjoy the good atmosphere that exists in this magical place. In addition, when you take a well-deserved rest, you can also take a walk around the impressive water fountain or have a coffee admiring nature, either alone or in good company with your friends.

Els Jardins de Laribal

If what you are looking for is a quieter version than the Parc de la Ciutadella, then we advise you to visit Els Jardins de Laribal in the heart of Montjuic. And it is that in this area, being less crowded, it is ideal to study with a quiet environment and without many tourists around.

In these gardens they are located next to the Joan Miró Foundation, a museum that we also recommend you visit because it is a classic of Barcelona.
Here the gardens offer plenty of shade and wonderful fountains, which make it an ideal area to study or enjoy a good book.

La Tamarita gardens

These gardens are located in the Sant Gervasi neighborhood and have vegetation and play spaces that will make you forget that you are even in the city. It is characterized by having two different areas, one perfect for walking and enjoying a beautiful garden and another area to sit and read in total comfort.

An ideal park for any time of the year thanks to its large shaded areas and the total tranquility that it transmits to its visitors.


The Sentmenat Gardens

They are undoubtedly one of the most preferred gardens by the people of Barcelona. The Eina Park becomes a very large park as well as clean at all times.

It is also perfect for cycling, lying on the grass, reading a good book or having a picnic with friends, as it also has a bar and terrace, perfect for having a vermouth while you take a break in your studies.

Slide park in Diagonal Mar

This is one of the most original parks in the entire city thanks to its architectural design. Located next to the Diagonal Mar shopping center, here you will find a huge space perfect for cycling, walking or running by the lake.

And if you want to review your notes or meet with your friends for a job outdoors, then this park becomes the best space to work with nature.

Joan Miró Park

This park, which is also known for zip lines, is a huge space in the middle of the city of Barcelona that borders a beautiful library designed in the shape of a ship. Here you have several very different areas depending on your needs, whether for moments of leisure, entertaining encounters or to study and concentrate as you like.
