What people say

"Reach the middle of the Horta Labyrinth Park, the oldest garden in Barcelona, and kiss your loved one(s) ​​under the amused gaze of the statue of Eros. The park, open to the public since 1967, has recently been restored and is divided into two parts: the first is in Neoclassical style (where the labyrinth is also located) while the second, in Romantic style, has all the elements to be a haunted place from ghosts at night and perfect for a walk with your sweetheart in the daytime. One of the characteristics of romanticism as an aesthetic idea is in fact the sublime: The sublime is linked to terror, and terror is all the more terrible if linked to the worst fear for man, namely death. This feeling of terror, however, must not be experienced firsthand, as it will no longer be sublime but real fear. That's why romantic gardens are always a bit decadent, they have to remind us of our fragility without making us realize it."

"This park has an absolute labyrinth, which is mega-cool. It’s also not easy to complete even though there appear to be no dead-ends. Eventually, you will get out but have a good time getting lost in a beautiful place. Unlike many mazes, the shrub walls are above head height, which makes it an incredible experience. This is perfect for anyone visiting Barcelona for the second time or anyone looking to do something out of the ordinary. It’s a lovely area and easily accessible via Barcelona’s metro system. It’s one of the coolest and most different things to do in Barcelona."
"This hidden gem is a bit off the beaten path but a delightful discovery. Dating back to the 18th century, this park features a neoclassical maze with cypress hedges that will challenge your sense of direction in a fun way. How to get there: Metro (L3 to Mundet station) then take a bus (lines 86, 92, or 116)."
