Oranges in Barcelona at the Palau Robert

Around the Palau Robert is a beautiful garden designed by Barcelona municipal gardener Ramon Oliva. The gardens around this neo-Classical mansion (built in 1903) are filled with palms from the 1888 Universal Exhibition that was held in Parc de la Ciutadella. The Palau Robert is now home to several galleries and hosts many special events. The most impressive thing, besides the exhibit on special effects that was on at the Palau, may have been that the gardens were full of wild tropical birds and oranges.
