Tourists in Barcelona already has a huge number of tourist attractions to see. But when you look further, you discover that the city has more fascinating places to offer which don´t appear in the usual attractions list.

In today’s post I would like to show you one of the most fascinating places in the district of Horta-Guinardó in Barcelona. These are the Horta gardens, designed in 1792 by the Italian engineer Domenico Bagutti at the request of the villa owner Joan Desvalls, the Marquis de Llupià i d’Alfarràs.

The Labyrinth Park in Horta is the oldest existing garden in Barcelona. It has a stylish design and is beautifully tended. It has a romantic feel that makes it feel like a paradise ideal to lose yourself in. The garden has flowerbeds, big trees, squares and even a waterfall. It is full of little corners that will enchant the visitor. A walk through the gardens will fill you with a sense of history and peace.

As you work your way through this spectacular maze, you will find the famous “Sovereign Tower”, a former farmhouse of the fourteenth century, restored and redecorated in arabesque style during the nineteenth century.

Opening times depend on the time of year. – November, December, January and February, open daily from 10am to 6pm. – March to October, daily from 10am to 7pm. – April, daily from 10am to 8pm. – May to September, daily from 10am to 9pm.
