The gardens of the Villa Amelia form an almost perfect square. The green design of traditional French style is the result of a merger between the original species of a former private gardens and plantations later introduced when they remodeled to make them public. The presence of towering trees of species varied highlights the quality of a garden where trees are preserved as palms, bananas or pins and a variety of shrubs and flowerbeds.

history
The Gardens of the Villa Amelia originate in the sumptuous garden that Ignasi Girona had built a farm on his property Sarria. The name put in honor of his wife, Amelia de Vilanova. For many years, the Girona family used the Quinta Amelia as a summer resort. In 1930 the City Council to allocate land for a public park, and in 1969 was finally expropriated in exchange for building one part, which led to the overthrow of the former residence of Girona. A piece of land has been integrated into the neighboring gardens of the Villa Cecilia, located across the street from Santa Amelia, which opened when they created two green spaces

biodiversity
The Gardens of the Villa Amelia are rich in plant species -around a cinquantena-, and rare specimens in Barcelona and the avenue flanked Sophora japonica pendula copies. There are lindens (Tilia x europaea and tomentosa), cedar (Cedrus libani, Deodar and Atlantic) and cypress (Cupressus glabra, and macrocarpa sempervirens). jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia), the rosewood (Tipuana types) and the Judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum) and shrubs such as Lagerstroemia indica, all with spectacular flowerings complete the set features magnolias (Magnolia grandiflora), oaks ( Quercus ilex), the Judas trees (Cercis siliquastrum), large specimens of pine and white pine (Pinus pinea and Pinus hapelenssis) and among the palm trees, the palm (Chamaerops humilis) and highly developed examples of Trachycarpus fortunei . But the undisputed kings of vegetation are a banana (Platanus X hispanica) and false pepper (Schinus molle) almost ninety years, a eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) planted at the end of the century. XIX, a copy of Gymnocladus dioicus almost centenary, and a set of 15 Canary Island date palms (Phoenix canariensis) that were planted in the late nineteenth century. All are within the Catalogue of Trees of Local Interest in Barcelona

Landscaping and Design
An example is the bower of cypress, located atop a hill of stones that was once a waterfall. It is very close access from the Calle Santa Amelia. In front, the gardens stretch, splendid, with large beds each with different vegetation. The lake and the hill of pines are the two prominent places in the gardens. The circular pool is located within a large parterre with small myrtle carefully trimmed hedges that form drawings on the lawn. In the water aquatic plants reign, presided over by the figure of a nymph protective. As a counterpoint to this calm and open space near the access street Francesc Carbonell hill there is a little hidden from bare ground which is accessed by a wooden steps. It is a different and a bit rough

Art and Architecture
In an islet that emerges in the middle of the pond Gardens of the Villa Amelia rises, small and slender, Driade, a nymph protective forests. It is the bronze figure of a naked adolescent, considered one of the best sculptures by Ricard Sala. Not far away in a corner between dark and light, a young ephebe plays the flute. The Snake Charmer is a bronze Belgian Jules Anthone.
