Three must-see gardens in our city
The garden of the house Ignacio de Puig
Located a few meters from the Boqueria in Hotel Petit Palace Boqueria Garden (Boqueria, 10). There you can be transported by the sound of water and nature while sitting on a wooden bench watching the birds, the trees, the flowers or just chatting.
To enter this green oasis you must pass through the reception of the Petit Palace Boqueria Garden Hotel, after crossing the first garden with bar area of the hotel. You’ll think it’s not real, but it is. You as your own will see the tourists stunned by so much beauty as they stroll around. It is open daily from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
La Tienda Olokuti (organic and eco store): live and let live
Located at Astúries, 38. It is really a country surprise because no one would think that in one of the stores in Astúries street there could be a country garden. At Olokuti while strolling through its facilities you will casually stumble upon the garden when you see the sign “Welcome to Olokuti’s garden”.
If you wish to continue the tour, you must respect and abide by the entrance rules, such as not consuming food that is not from the site or disturbing the neighbors. The rules of the garden are in line with the philosophy of the store.
At the Olokuti Store you can buy a packet of organic tea or coffee and serve it yourself in the garden. You will be able to taste it with all tranquility in some of its tables in the middle of plants and trunks. At Olokuti, one of the best gardens in our city, there is no waiting list behind you and no impatient people waiting for you to leave to take your place.
Open Monday to Thursday from 10:00 am to 9:30 pm and Friday and Saturday from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.
Torre Rosa Cocktail Bar
Located at Francesc Tàrrega, 22, a former Indian mansion. Without a doubt, at Torre Rosa cocktail bar you will be able to savor a Hawaii Blue under a palm tree. Yes, believe it or not, and in the heart of Barcelona, just outside the city center. It is as if you were transported to Polynesia in the middle of a classic style place with an open-air garden.
