And what to say about the Palacio de Pedralbes and the neighbouring parks? This is the precise location of the 2019 Festival Jardins de Pedralbes. It is rooted in the fire of the former building, which was the residence of the Kings in many of their holidays period and in their various visits to the region. After this fire, then-mayor Joan Antoni Güell decided to rehabilitate it and to build a residence, which was again ceded to the king in 1926, who was then Alfonso XIII. It is currently managed by the Generalitat, since the Municipality ceded its use in 2004.
The main element of this festival is its auditorium, which allows a high quality, bright and clear acoustics. The stage is located right in front of the façade of the Palacio de Pedralbes, offering a beautiful stamp to the spectators, while they are listening their favourite musical artists, which, combined with the stunning gardens, gives to the event a still more powerful magnetism
