BARCELONA FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

 Barcelona is a sustainable city closely interconnected with the environment and the protection of natural resources, which in turn leads to an exceptional quality of life.

The presence of many green areas, natural spaces and beaches make the city of Barcelona a city with a very good environmental quality.

Barcelona has high marks for air quality. Air quality means, amongst other things, the quality of the air we breathe and acceptable noise levels. To ensure this quality and a sky that is always blue, Barcelona has an important atmospheric pollution control and prevention network.

Barcelona has parks and gardens of many different types and characteristics: historical parks like Ciutadella, La Font del Racó or Guinardó; parks which were originally private property, such as the gardens of the poet Eduard Marquina, the Vil.la Amèlia, the Parc del Laberint and the Parc Güell; those outstanding due to their vegetation, such as the exotic Jardí Costa i Llobera, the Jardí de Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer and the Parc del Turó de la Peira, amongst others.

Intelligent and ecological traffic solutions, green buildings, water management, green spaces and a clean environment makes Barcelona one of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable cities in the world.
