Its spring here in Barcelona. There are new blooms and excitement on the streets dabbled with a few rainy and windy days. We are headed off for another weekend excursion and I’m pretty sure that when we return 70 degree weather will have arrived and parked itself a seat.
This is Tamarita Gardens or in Catalan, Jardins de la Tamarita. At first glance it appears to be a small city park. Yet as you walk through you discover a number of courtyards that feel as though they are each a hidden garden. At the very back of the park is a large playground and plenty of benches for onlooking parents. There are also some pretty spectacular climbing trees throughout the park.
Like many areas throughout the city, this park has orange trees. Unlike most parks, however, it also has bamboo! It is quieter than most parks as a result of being a bit off the beaten path tucked away in a small corner of the Sant Gervasi neighborhood.
