The Ciutadella Park

Just a 15-minute walk from the recently renovated Hotel SB Icaria, 4*, you will find one of the emblems of Barcelona: the Ciutadella Park. An example of biodiversity that has more than 100 plant species and trees, some of them centenarians. It has an area of more than 17 hectares and while walking and enjoying its landscape you can also do various activities such as sailing in a boat on its large pond or participate in any of the leisure proposals that are often organised in its facilities, such as concerts or outdoor markets.

The Gardens of Joan Maragall

The modern Hotel SB Plaza Europa (4*) is located in the new financial heart of Barcelona, next to one of the most extraordinary and least known places in the city: the Joan Maragall Gardens.

The overall elegance of this place, as well as its wide area, ornamental fountains and 32 outdoor sculptures, will take you back to another era. Surrounded by nature, large parterres are erected on the sides of its esplanade, giving a good sample of its great biodiversity of plant species, some of them of Mediterranean origin such as holm oak and elm.

The Diagonal Mar Park

The Hotel SB Diagonal Zero (4* superior) is located in a privileged area. Oriented towards the sea, you can bathe in the Mediterranean breeze and let yourself be carried away by the large avenues that surround the hotel, take advantage of an afternoon of shopping and conclude your day by letting yourself be impressed in the Diagonal Mar Park, the second largest in the city with 340,000 square meters of surface area.

This park is popularly known by the giant slides, by the huge slide-shaped metal structures that blend in with the natural environment, giving it a touch of originality and making it a fun place for the whole family.

The Garraf Natural Park

The Hotel SB BCN Events (4*) is located in the municipality of Castelldefels. Nearby we can find one of the most impressive protected areas in Catalonia: the Garraf Natural Park. This beautiful place is characterised by its steep landscape in its 12,820 hectares divided into two large spaces: calcareous rock on one hand and reddish conglomerates on the other.

SB Hotels recommends you to get carried away by the different routes marked and indicated in the park to discover this impressive massif.
