The Horta Labyrinth Park is a historic garden, the oldest preserved in the city. It is located in the former estate of the Desvalls family, on a slope of the Collserola mountain range. Begun in 1794 and completed in its first phase in 1808, it was designed by the Italian architect Domenico Bagutti.
In the same enclosure, we will find a neoclassical garden of the eighteenth century and a romantic garden of the nineteenth century. It was opened to the public in 1971. This space has numerous works of art, mainly sculptures, as well as various ponds, waterfalls, fountains and a canal that runs through the upper enclosure. In gardening, the labyrinth stands out, made with cut cypresses.
Throughout its history, the venue has been visited by several monarchs, such as Carlos IV, Fernando VII and Alfonso XIII, and has been the scene of theatrical performances and various cultural events.
Nowadays it is a garden-museum that has a municipal institute for training in gardening.
Now you can visit it with an expert in Botany who will enlighten you on the subject.
