These gardens, which began life as a rose garden, are one of several green spaces created on Montjuïc for the 1929 International Exposition. An old quarry allowed the construction of an amphitheatre that now hosts many of the Barcelona Grec Festival performances every summer. It is a sunny spot, with geometric flowerbeds, pergolas and terraces, from where visitors can admire the landscaped mountain and the city.

As you walk up Passeig de Santa Madrona, you will encounter a large, stone, imperial staircase that rises up either side of a wall. This is the main entrance to the gardens. From here you can see some of their main features: the pergola, the old pavilion and the sloping trimmed hedges with tall trees behind them.
