Mossèn Costa i Llobera Gardens
The Barcelona Cactus Gardens are located in Park Montjuic and on the steep side of Montjuic hill, facing the sea and below the Miramar esplanade on an area called "el Morrot." The gardens are named after Mallorcan poet and priest Miquel Costa i Llobera and have an impressive collection of cacti from all over the world considered as one of the most important in the luscious plant world. The cactus garden reopened in 2011 after 5 years of renovation. Originally the gardens were created in 1970 in an old quarry filled with earth from old military fortifications. The park entrance is on plaça de l'Armada at south end of Miramar esplanade and hotel.
