Jardins Joan Maragall

Royal gardens and the Palauet Albéniz

Palauet Albeniz and gardens

Just below the Palau Nacional, the fountain and sculpture-filled Jardins Maragall (named after the great Catalan poet) are the beautiful formal gardens of the Palauet Albéniz (1928), named after the influential Catalan composer Isaac Albéniz (1860-1906).

Dalí's dome

This modest royal palace (open only occasionally, by written request well in advance, and on special days) is the official residence of the King and Queen of Spain in Barcelona; it's also used for municipal banquets. Lucky guests are greeted by a dome painted by Dalí, his biggest and one of his few works in Barcelona.
