Do you fancy a nice walk with your family?
Then let’s go, today we take you to the surroundings of Barcelona to discover the maze located at d’Horta. Fear not, it’s not so far away from the centre – and it will allow you to discover other districts of the city as well. You can get there by bus or even by direct metro from the Plaça de Catalunya station. There’s a flight of stairs when coming out of the metro – if you’re pushing a trolley, don’t look around for an elevator… you’ll need to climb them! But believe us, it’s completely worth it.
First of all, you’ll arrive to a pretty playground, so sunny you will almost believe it’s the middle of summer when the winter sun shows its face. There are lawns to have a picnic around the park, or you can simply enjoy yourself watching your children play.
Already recovered from the journey and the stairs? Then it’s the time to walk through the great park and head towards the labyrinth
Have you ever wished to see a real labyrinth like the one in Alice in Wonderland? Well, there you have it! Children and grown-ups alike get in the game and try to find their way – with better or worse luck. Be aware that it can take quite a long time, especially if you let your kids lead the way. Once out of the maze, don’t hesitate to take a stroll around this great park, cool and shady – it’s perfect for summer!
It’s the oldest garden of Barcelona (1802).
The park is located at the district of d’Horta.
The labyrinth covers a surface of 45 x 50 meters.
In the middle of the maze you’ll find a statue of Eros (an icon of the Greek mythology).
If you look hard enough, you’ll find two temples inside this big park.
Get lost inside this beautiful park, look at the plants and flowers, walk through the caves and waterfalls and admire the fountains, statues and waterfalls!
The park is open from Monday to Sunday (11h to 20h).
There’s an entrance fee during the work week, but it’s free on Sundays and Wednesdays.
