The greatest advantage of Barcelona, apart from its many monuments and architectural masterpieces, is its closeness to Collserola Park – it can be reached within 30-40 minutes from Plaza Catalunya by train or car.
The area was preserved as a national park in 1987. With its 85 square kilometres it is the biggest metropolitan park in the world. To help you visualise its size, the park is 22 times bigger than Central Park in New York.
The park’s highest point is Tibidabo with its telecommunication tower built in 1992 for the Olympic games.
The park consists of many animals, plants and eco-systems. If you want to escape from the city, this is the place to come. There are many routes to follow, cycling alleys and points for bird watching.
