Barcelona is quite a green city. It boasts many wonderful parks, and we can name a few – Ciutadella Park, Güell Park, Joan Miro Park and so on. But have you heard of the Labyrinth de Horta Park? Easily reachable by metro or bus, away from the crowded touristy places, Barcelona Labyrinth Park is the perfect destination for a day of relaxing in the sun!
Get lost in the labyrinth!
The history of the Barcelona Labyrinth Park of Horta goes back all the way to 1792 when an Italian engineer designed the gardens for the owner of the estate at the time, Joan Desvalls, the Marquis of Llupià and Alfarràs.
In other words, even now, despite the passage of so many years, the place still looks deeply grounded in history and it’s quite the fairy tale scene.
