As for the surroundings, the gardens of the Palau de Pedralbes are among the most beautiful in Barcelona. It’s one of the lungs of the city. On its trails you will find people running, walking, sunbathing and enjoy the nature that offers this haven of peace a few minutes from downtown. The vegetation is made up of cedars, pines, shrubs and a multitude of plants that, throughout Barcelona, you will only find here.
About the Royal Palace of Pedralbes, that you will find there, you have to know that during the years 1919-1931 it was residence of the kings of Spain, when they came to Barcelona, but before, it belonged to Eusebi Güell, the same one that gave name to the Park Güell. This curiosity explains why in the gardens you can see works by the greatest exponent of Catalan modernism, Gaudí, a good friend of Güell.
Another curious fact: In the Pedralbes Gardens you will be able to see in a small corner a fountain of Hercules, with a dragon’s head through which water flows. Well, this sculpture was hidden by the vegetation and was so covered that it was not discovered until 1984, a hundred years after it was built.
