The oldest park in barcelona

The Laberinto de Horta (Horta Labyrinth) is a classical park, the oldest in Barcelona and also one of the less known.

The entrance fee is 2€, but it is free of charge on Wednesdays and Sundays. At the entrance you can see the house where the owners, the marquis of Llupià i Alfarrà and his family used to live in the 18th century, when it was still a farm and you would get there by carriage, two hours away from Barcelona. Now it is next to the Vall d'Hebron hospital, completely inside the city, next to the cycle track built for the Olympic games.

There is a small garden, which used to be the most delicate garden, with roses and all types of exotic trees coming from Asia or America and would wow the guests, and then there's the park, with its famous labyrinth.

It is where the movie "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" was shot. There are many movies shooting there, as the city of Barcelona accepts it and the money helps maintain the gardens.

The house is now in ruins and they aren't sure what to do with it. Apart from the labyrinth, there are other parts of the park, like the theme parks that used to entertain the guests who would come to stay for several weeks.

There is a "romantic" canal, with swans and boats, a small room on top of it all to have tea in the summer, a part where they would grow fruit and vegetable, an artificial waterfall, etc. They look after it very well and it is very quiet, perfect for taking a break from the noisy city.

The Laberinto Park is a little-known place in Barcelona even though it is a historical garden. I loved following the bushes until I found the center of the labyrinth and the big center fountain. A different place in a non-trendy neighborhood of Barcelona.

Great to take time with your family

I live next to Barcelona and I didn't know about this park. So I read the post on minube and I thought it would be interesting to go there on a weekend. The place is very quiet, people very polite(the park is very clean), it has lovely spots you can enjoy on your own or with other people. I definitely recommend it.

Ideal for a couple

In the elevated part of Barcelona, behind the Horta cycle track, you can visit a magical park, the Laberinto. Ideal for a couple to get lost there ;)

It is on the same slope as the Collserola park, where you can have walks with magnificent views of the city.
