Laribal Garden

The Laribal Garden is located in the mountain of Montjuic, in the district of Sants. Its name comes from the old owner of the land, the journalist and republican politician Josep Laribal. In 1909 he went to the City Hall and between 1917 and 1924 they were built on the occasion of the International Exhibition of Barcelona in 1929. They are the work of Jean Claude Nicolas Forestier and Nicolau Maria Rubio i Tudí.

This garden is the first public rose window that was created in Barcelona, known as the Colla de l’Arròs. They house several spaces such as the Generalife stairs, which connect the Laribal Gardens and the Teatre Grec with the Joan Miró Foundation and the Jardin de Esculturas. Also the famous Font del Gat (Fuente del Gato) that its dispenser has a cat head shape, the work of Josep Antoni Homs. Next to the fountain the former owner Josep Laribal built a neo-arabic villa, built by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. The villa is currently the headquarters of the Montjuic Park Welcome Center.

In the Garden there are several sculptures that give it a more artistic look. Estival by Jaume Otero, a feminine nude in art-deco-style marble and the Joven de la trenza by Josep Viladomat, among others.

It is a place to enjoy, to contemplate it and to discover the thousands of details that make it up. They have a very difficult harmony to overcome; Their views of the city make it even more special.
