In Pedralbes, the Parc de Cervantes greets us as we enter Barcelona from the Avinguda Diagonal. An image of lush greenery and colour in a landscaped area covering some 9 hectares, which conceals a small open-air museum. The park contains a beautiful collection of roses set out along an unusual botanical trail featuring varieties in all shapes and colours from every continent of the world. The area where roses bloom from April to November, due Barcelona's mild climate, is known as the pergola. Since the year 2001, the park has hosted an international rose show featuring new species which are added to its multicoloured collection, which now includes 245 different varieties and 10,000 rose bushes. In addition to the rose garden, which covers an area of 4 hectares, the Parc de Cervantes offers extensive grassy areas which are ideal for jogging, cycling, gymnastics or just people-watching in the heart of Pedralbes neighbourhood.
