Jardín Botánico de Barcelona

Acronym: JBB


The Botanic Garden of Barcelona is a center of exhibition of alive plant collections from all the regions of the World with mediterranean climate. The collections are distributed according to their geographical origin and the species are divided representing natural plant communities. So, several plant assemblages with the same environmental requirements (waterings, substratums, fertilizers...) are created and their maintenance becomes more sustainable. The Garden has an area of nurseries for the production of plants and useful infrastructures for conservation projects. It also has technical personnel's staff for the control of the existent collections and for the inclusion of new ones.
