Located on the heights (North-West) of Barcelona, the Parc del Laberint Horta is the oldest park of the city.

My experience, Explo description: 

The marquis Joan Antoni Desvalls I Ardena decided to create a park in 1791. It was first a neo-classical garden during the 18th century, and his descendants added a romantic garden with flowers, a canal and a waterfalls in the middle of the 19th century.

At the end of the 19th century, it became the place of social and cultural events including representations of outdoor theatre.

In 1967, the Desvalls family gave the park to the city of Barcelona. The park was opened to the public in 1971.

The park is currently a museum garden. To preserve the fragile environment and the structures of the area, the number of visitors is limited to 750 people at the same time.

In the park, you will admire many statues and fountains.

The park also hosts a neo-classical style house which is currently a training centre.

The neo-classical garden composed of 3 terraces. On the lower terrace is located the labyrinth that gave its name to the park. It is composed by 750 metres of carved cypress. At the entrance to the labyrinth is a marble "bas-relief" representing Ariane and Theseus. In the centre stands a statue of Eros god.
