Horta’s Labyrinth Park has the city’s oldest conserved garden. Once Neoclassical, with a slightly Italian look, it later adopted a Romantic style.
This historical garden is perfect for young and old alike. Get lost in its enchanting cypress-tree maze or wander its romantic gardens with hidden ponds, pavilions and sculptures. The oldest park in Barcelona can be visited at any time of year, but is especially magical in the autumn.
Every doubt is a labyrinth. Decisions, hypotheses and theories are paths for finding solutions, with every shortcut opening up a new point of view. Think about that as you try to work your way deep into the park’s labyrinth, made from wide, domesticated cypress hedges. If you reach the centre without finding the heart the park will have robbed you of, go and ask Eros where you can get it back. His sculpture stands smack in the middle of the labyrinth. Once you are back in the world, you can face the second challenge: Is this a Neoclassical or Romantic garden.
