The gardens of Doctor Pla i Armengol are a large island of 3.6 hectares of green open to the Guinardó neighbourhood, with access from Ronda del Guinardó, Cartagena street, Mare de Déu de Montserrat avenue and the Melis torrent.

These gardens, inaugurated in 1930, are named after Dr. Ramon Pla i Armengol, owner of the old Mas Ravetllat estate, and are the work of the architect Adolf Florensa. Ramon Pla i Armengol (1880-1958) together with the veterinarian Joaquim Ravetllat i Estech (1871-1923) founded the Ravetllat-Pla Institute dedicated to making anti-tuberculosis products from the blood of previously treated horses. These gardens housed the pharmaceutical laboratories where the drugs were made and the agricultural environment was adapted for the facilities of the horses.
