Google sees all, knows all, tells all. Just Google on Barcelona bonsai. Hope those here can give specific recommendations.

Hi Will

Mistral Bonsai just south of Tarragona, which is down the coast from Barcelona, it is possible by train then a cab, I did a demo there a few years back and it is well worth a visit. Kimura has been a few times as a guest artist too.

"Castillo Bonsai" is in the suburbs of Barcelona:

Carrer de San Feliu, 24
08906, l'Hospitalet de Llobregat

It can be accessed by the underground:

"Can Boixeres is a station on line 5 of the Barcelona Metro. The station is located on an open-air section of track between Carrer de l'Estronci and Camí de Can Boixeres, just south of the Ronda de Dalt, in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat."

Their website: http://www.castillobonsai.net/eng/indexuk.html

If you have a car, one of the largest bonsai nurseries in Europe is about 100 km south of Barcelona, in Tarragona:

http://www.mistralbonsai.com/fra/index.asp

They must have an English version of their site, but I couldn't find it. Google "Mistral Bonsai", maybe you'll be luckier.

If you are new to Barcelona, take care with your wallet, preferably wear a money belt. Each time I have visited, pickpockets have made their presence felt. I stopped one, in the act, trying to lift my wallet as I got onto the tube. We saw an audacious theft from a chap in a que for the chairlift in the Olympic park when the thief grabbed a wallet and leapt out of the window dropping 10m to the ground and fleeing. My wifes friend had her purse lifted as they got onto a bus. They target tourists and most of the time get away unnoticed with it. This probably goes on in many places, but I've never experienced it personally or so regularly anywhere else I've been.

If you enjoy seeing trees in mountain scenery, take the train north to the Parc Natural de la Muntanya de Montserrat and then the telecabine up to the top. A wonderful Monastery sits high in the mountains and is surrounded by delightful walks.

Good luck with your bonsai hunting.

Hi, just a quick note: Castillo Bonsai sells bonsai related stuff only online. If you visit them, they only import clothes. Shocked
