  • First of all, I must acknowledge my great mistake for the laziness that occurred to me to know this (magnificent) attractiveness of my much-loved Barcelona. I work in a hotel and every time a client asked me for information about this maze, i was surprised and, I admit, I got on my nerves, especially because I couldn't give adequate information. So I decided to train for the next of interest. Result: those who come from outside have given me a masterful lesson in humility. Thanks to this I have discovered one of the most impressive and the most romantic places in my city. I have noticed that while the stones resist the passage of time and that there is always time to restore them, nature must be taken care of day by day. I think that's a great lesson, the Great Lesson of my experience. In the same way that I criticize when I see inefficiency and ineptitude in the duty granted, here I congratulate the management of this heritage that for more than 200 years is part of the city, and thank those who donated it to all. It is a museum garden, an example of biodiversity with temples, pavilions and terraces, a journey between neo-Claclaism and romanticism, and in which you could not miss the english touch :nature, in principle wild and left to your agency, but controlled and worked, that is, we're going to "create" a wild nature that looks wild. I hope I've explained myself.

  • I heard a lot of friends saying it wasn't anything big, so I put it up for a while to meet. But honestly, I loved it! The park is very large, has many beautiful buildings, a picnic area, bathroom... exceeded is very my expectations! I don't think it's advisable to go if you have a few days in Barcelona, it's your first time in town. Because it's nothing like that from another world either. It's an excellent program to do with kids, since they have a lot of fun trying to find the way out of the maze.

  • Beautiful park - labyrinth. Funny for kids. Beautiful gardens for a morning or afeternoon walking (not camping allowed). Exceptional at the entrance of the park close to the parking there is a bar, children park and tables for camping area. Free entrance Wednesday and Sundays. Rest of the days a regular fee (around 3€ p/person)
  • Great place to go. The subway is the easiest way to go there. Then you will have to walk for 10 minutes top and you will find yourself in the entrance of a huge park (almost 18 acres!). The park has a 2,5€ entrance fee. Really cheap. The labyrinth worth to be visited by friends so they can help each other to reach the heart (eros' statue) and the exit.
