The Botanical Garden of Montjuïc is a highlight of interest. Located on the upper part of the mountain that previously housed an amusement park, it is an authentic Mediterranean garden, and the Barcelona Museum of Natural Sciences offers a guided tour on weekends to discover the principal Mediterranean habitats: the Mediterranean Basin, southern South Africa, central Chile, southern and south-western Australia, and western California. A great trip without leaving Montjuïc. The tour is designed as a naturalist voyage aboard a boat, similar to several Russian expeditions. The garden managers maintain that any time of the year is good for a visit, although summer is the driest season. Autumn is the ideal time, since, during that season’s typical rains, plant activity begins anew, bulbs begin to appear, and the annual plants sprout.
