The magnolia is a highly valued flower in Catalan culture and is one of the symbols of spring in the city. During the flowering season, which is usually between the months of March and April, magnolias of different species and colors can be seen in many areas of Barcelona.
Magnolias are highly prized for their showy, fragrant flowers, and some species are grown as ornamental trees in parks and gardens. They are also used in traditional medicine in some cultures to treat various ailments.
On Gran de Gracia street in Barcelona is the thousand-year-old tree that accompanies us on our walks.
