Jardines de Ca n'Altimira

Gardens Barcelona, Spain

A romantic, peaceful and mysterious atmosphere at Jardines de Ca n'Altimira

These gardens are a product of time; their architectural features point out the romantic nature of Ca n’Altimira and its green ground. Originally built in the middle of the 19th century by Dr Josep Altimira’s Sant Gervasi, this wealthy and rather extravagant character suffered a reverse of fortune that left him on the verge of poverty and so he donated his properties to the Order of the Missionaries of the Immaculate Conception, which took care of him until death, since he had no heirs. The nuns settled in a school building, the Immaculate Conception of the building that occupies a good part of the old gardens. The small green grounds that we know today, therefore, is only part of what were possibly unique gardens with artificial underground caves that connected the pillared hall with the house owner.
