THE CITIZEN PARK
The park is one of the largest green spaces in Barcelona, with more than 17 hectares, next to the Sierra de Collserola.
The park is located in the district of Gracia, between the neighborhoods of La Salud, Vallcarca-Penitents and El Coll, and borders on Carmelo.
The regulated tourist area occupies only a small part of the park; the rest are nature spaces and leisure areas of free access for all.
Beyond the architectural heritage, the park constitutes a reserve of nature, gardens and biodiversity in the center of the city.
