The Botanical garden of Barcelona (Catalan: Jardí Botànic de Barcelona, IPA: ) is a botanical garden in the Montjuïc hill of Barcelona set amongst a number of stadiums used in the Summer Olympic Games of 1992. Although a botanic garden had been established in Barcelona as early as 1888, the current gardens date from 1999. It should not be confused with the Historic botanical garden of Barcelona (Catalan: Jardí Botànic Històric) founded in 1930 and reopened in 2003, also located in Montjuïc.

The gardens specialize in plants and communities from those areas of the world with Mediterranean climates and is divided into areas representing the main areas.
