The Horta labyrinth Park (El Laberinto de la Horta) garden is the oldest existing in Barcelona. The park features a neoclassical garden and a romantic garden, but the biggest attraction of the park is the labyrinth, formed by several cyprus.
It was built during the 18th century by the architect Domenico Bagutti to design a landscape for Antoni Desvalls. In 1971, the park was given to the city, as the family could no longer keep up with such a garden. It is 17 acres of romantic green gardens, waterfalls, statues, and a labyrinth in the middle.The Labryrinth has many mythological creatures around the park.
The park opens every day at 10 am until sunset. It costs 3 euros to enter, however on Sunday and Wednesday it is free.
Our Bed & Breakfast offers you a tip: Have you seen the film ‘The Perfum’? The story is set in 18th-century France, but in fact it was shot in many different places of Barcelona, including Laberint d’Horta, and Plaça Reial, Catedral de Barcelona, Barri Gòtic, Plaça Sant Felip Neri and Poble Espanyol.
The Horta Labyrinth Park is located in a neighbourhood called Horta. You can get there with the green line, Mundet station.
