Jardí Botànic de Barcelona (JBB)

Type ALt here

Country: Spain | Region: Catalunya

Situated on gently sloping terrain in Montjuïc Park, Jardí Botànic de Barcelona (Botanical Garden of Barcelona) offers visitors a different walk in each season of the year as they observe vegetation from the five regions in the world with a Mediterranean-type climate.

The purpose of the Jardí Botànic is to conserve and show collections of Mediterranean plants from around the world. Among its main objectives are: the conservation and documentation of the natural heritage of Catalonia; to promote botanical and naturalist culture; and to promote knowledge of and respect for nature.

The Garden has a Germplasm Bank that conserves the seeds of the most interesting species from both the viewpoint of scientific importance and that of conservation. Some of these species are endangered or vulnerable in Catalonia and we work with them, together with the Flora section of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

Thus, the Garden offers the tools and basic infrastructures so that all those institutions working on conservation can have access to them to develop their projects as and when necessary.
