Sant Just Desvern can not be understood without Collserola. Half of its municipal district is part of the natural park. The proximity of the urban center with Collserola allows to offer the 18,000 people who live in a privileged environment of flora, fauna, nature routes and a rich historical heritage as the remains of the Iberian settlement of the Peña del Moro, the flour mill, different farms and various natural sources, among others.
On the other hand, the citizens of Sant Just Desvern can enjoy more than thirty parks scattered around the urban fabric, with landscaped 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 arboreal 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 banana tree.
