Julio Muñoz Gardens and Home Open to the Public

Starting this weekend, the beautiful gardens and home of Julio Muñoz Ramonet in the Sarria-Sant Gervasi district just outside of Barcelona open their doors to the public for the first time. From now until March, this elite green space will be having free entrance every Saturday and Sunday. It is a great example of 20th century Barcelona bourgeoisie just a short distance from our location in the center of the city.

At our history seminar, we learned all about the historic gothic and medieval buildings in Barcelona. The amount of craftsmanship and detail that it took to create many of these structures is incredible. Some of these buildings included the Santa Maria del Mar, the Cathedral of Barcelona, gargoyles, Santa Maria del Pi, the medieval walls, and much more.
