Sant Just Desvern cannot be understood without Collserola. Half of its municipal area is part of the natural park. The proximity of the town center to Collserola allows us to offer the 18,000 people who live there a privileged environment of flora, fauna, nature routes and a rich historical heritage such as the remains of the Iberian town of Peña del Moro, the flour mill, different farmhouses. and various natural sources, among others.

On the other hand, the citizens of Sant Just Desvern can enjoy more than thirty parks spread throughout the urban fabric, with garden spaces. The municipality has 19 square meters of urban green areas per inhabitant, far exceeding the recommendation of the World Health Organization.

The variety of tree species is another characteristic aspect of the urban flora of the municipality. The streets and parks of Sant Just have 8,000 trees of 46 species native to the area, the most common of which are the hackberry, the melia and the plane tree.
