Parque Laberinto, Barcelona


I had never been to a maze park before, I had just seen some in a movie or two and always thought it looked fun. After a long time in Barcelona, I heard about the Parque Laberinto. I had no idea it existed, but one Sunday me and a friend decided to bring a picnic basket and check it out. 

Such a great surprise! It is located a bit out of the city centre and most other tourist attractions, and I didn't see one single tourist, just families enjoying a Sunday in the sun in beautiful surroundings and fresh air. It's not like I have anything against tourists, but there are many of them in Barcelona, and it's really nice to go somewhere great without having to queue up just to move around. 




It's located at the top of the city, not too far from Tibidabo and Carretera de les aigües, all beautiful spaces with fresh air and great views.

The maze is fun, but there's so much more. Beautiful sculptures, water (in different forms...) a neoclassical garden, a palace, and at the back is where the forest of Collserola starts - perfect for a picnic!






A tip! Go on a Wednesday or a Sunday, the entrance is free. Other days you pay about €2 to enter.




Isn't it beautiful?

How to get there? 
Get on the metro on the green line (L3) and 
take it to Mundet. It's located a few minutes walk from the metro station.

  1. What an unusual park! I've made a note of this for my trip to Barcelona in May. I'll let you know if I make it there!

    1. So nice to have such a park (or any park really) nearby! Right now I don't have any parks nearby but I live on the beach and the beach is a very good substitute :)
