Carrer Germans Desvalls and Passeig dels Castanyers
Barcelona

Designed at the end of the 18th century using the neoclassical style of that period is the Parc del Laberint d’Horta which is the oldest garden in Barcelona and is situated in the north of the city. There are various levels to the garden and it is lined with flowerbeds, trees and there is also a canal. The most impressive part of the garden is the lower lever where you can find a maze made from around 750 metres of trimmed cypresses.

There are also a number of ’must-sees’ in the 22 acre garden, such as the small sculptures and fountains. In the past, Carlos IV, Fernando VII and Alfonso XIII used the garden for royal receptions and it has also been the venue for theatrical performances and the setting for films such as El Perfume.
