Cervantes – park of roses

Have you ever wanted to escape the big city noise and go somewhere quiet?

As I live in Barcelona I find myself getting tired of all the tourists and the hussle and bussle sometimes.
And so to go to the park at Zona Universitaria called Parque de las Rosas de Cervantes – it’s a perfect little getaway… I hop on the metro from the city centre and within fifteen minutes I’m breathing fresher air and everything is peaceful.
Here I can come any time in spring or summer to enjoy the vast space that make up the biggest park of roses in Barcelona. The best time though, is to visit at the end of April or beginning of May to look at all the hundreds of different kinds of roses blossoming.


Besides the splendid collection of roses there are many pergolas to walk under, sculptures to gaze at and luscious trees to lay underneath. As I stroll along among some of the most beautiful things nature has to offer, I find myself dreaming of having a romantic picnic here, or even a perfect spring wedding…!
