El Palace’s new terrace in a pure classic, romantic and Noucentisme style with more than fifty plants, pergolas, fountains, paths, ponds and swimming pool. Inspired by the chromatic hues and atmospheres of Ramón Casas’ painting, Interior in the Open Air, and by the garden of Casa Cambó. Frances Cambó was an investor and driving force behind the Ritz Hotel in Barcelona. The Diana Garden is a tribute to Barcelona, recreating its most beautiful gardens.
The Diana Garden embellishes the roof of El Palace Barcelona. Designed as a walk to stimulate the senses, it has a 360 degree panoramic view of Barcelona’s skyline and its most emblematic buildings. Aromas, lights, breezes and colors characterize this sensual vantage point. And a telescope to allow you to see the latest details of the nearby Sagrada Familia.
The murmur of water flows from the water lily fountains. Among these romantic streams, the swimming pool is inspired by the hotel’s Roman-style bathrooms. Everything is protected by a bushy mass of wispy blue, green and grey shrubbery. And the floral walk passes under the Putxet, Glicinias, Sagrada Familia and Ciutadella pergolas. These are intimate nooks set among rose beds, jasmines, orange blossoms and aromatic flora common to the Mediterranean.
The Ciutadella Pergola features classic Noucentisme plants, a collection of citrus fruits, the hotel’s home-grown orchids and exotic fruit trees. Enveloped by the scent of orange trees, located nearby is the Mediterranean garden, where vegetables and spices are grown for the kitchen including native varieties that had previously been lost. And the garden of the senses is dedicated to aromatic herbs and culinary plants.
The Winter Garden is an indoor garden that features cast iron furniture recreating old designs together with bamboo seats from the early days of the hotel. The Alicante shutters, typical of courtyards in the Eixample district, have the same subdued tone as the canopies. The lights and lamps in these daydream-inducing nooks are made of cast iron to imitate those of the city’s most elegant boulevards. Invisible lights among the vegetation exude warmth and their color evokes that of gas lights.
With traditional ceramic paving and balustrades, the pots are the work of the last craftsman who uses traditional techniques, Jaume Marcó de Quart, who has also added to them the hotel’s pheasant logo. Water and light are intelligent to ensure efficient consumption of water and electricity. The same sustainable criterion is applied to the soil, substrates and fertilizers. The sound and visual screens have been made from fragrant evergreen laurel leaves and camphor trees.
The Diana Garden marks a milestone in the history of Barcelona gardening. Radically different to the hotel terrace concept, it is botanical and magical. Its sensuality bewitches and the sea breeze spreads its spell. With unique views over the city and all of the history and exquisite style of El Palace Barcelona.
