The Grec Gardens
Located on the foothills of Montjuïc on the outskirts of Poble Sec, the Gardens of the Grec theatre are so called in reference to the amphitheatre that sits inside them. Open to the public every day of the year, the garden is reminiscent of ancient Greece, with old stone columns draped in ivy, and walkways bordered with colourful flowers. The orange orchard, meanwhile, offers a sweet-scented treat to anyone who wanders through it in springtime. There are benches scattered among the trees, but one of the most inviting spots to take a seat is undoubtedly the amphitheatre itself.
