  • Even if a part of the Park was in the works, I found this walk in the Nice Park. Count 1 h to 2 h to the circle; You'll see labyrinth, fountains,... Small Tip: Wednesday and Sunday admission is free. I recommend visiting this park in Barcelona!

  • This place is great. The entrance price is really cheap and it's very entretaining (it's also free every Wednesday and Sunday!). The labyrinth is so much fun; it's hard enough to be a challenge but easy enough to be fun! There are many beautiful structures and there is so much history to this place. It's the perfect place for walking and talking and having a relaxing afternoon, as it often is not too crowded. We went there in the midst of July, when Barcelona is the busiest, and there still was only a handful of people. The location is quite far away from the centre of the city and it is also quite a walk from the subway stop, so I'd recommend grabbing the bus. It is well worth the walk, though. However, for this reason I'd say it's better to go when you have a lot of time, since it's far away and the labyrinth is better enjoyed with time and at a relaxed pace. I love the mythological inspiration this place has; it's a neoclassical build dating from the 1800's. I'd say it's better for older children, since younger children might get tired of walking and might need to use a stroller (which might be bothersome, since there isn't a massive amount of space in the corridors of the labyrinth).
  • This place is super magical with its labyrinth and beautiful gardens ! You can totally take the family here and have a day at the park ! Or a picnic and look around ! You won’t regret it it’s beautiful! 100% recommended! A must see if your visiting Barcelona !
