  • This park is really a hidden gem in Barcelona, a little bit hard to find however when you get there it is really nice to stroll around with or wthout your kids. Bring your own food because even when i...  more »
  • If you have long enough in Barcelona you do not lose the option of visiting this park. It is known by few tourists. The best thing is that you can enter free Sundays and walk the labyrinth. It is a picture for children and adults. 100% recommended.

  • It is on the old Juan Antonio Desvalls estate and was a project by the Italian Domenico Bagutti. The gardens are more ancient of the city, and the best way to reach is through the station Mundet metro 3 line. Despite the pictures I noticed Park neglected in several sectors, and the distance from the center of the city also left points. The garden is open every day from 10 to 20 hours and costs € 2.23, although you can access for free day Wednesday and Sunday, depending on the flow of visitors that take the place.

  • We loved this park! If you are a tourist but tired of the crowds and hoards of other tourists at every destination in the city, this park is for you. Sundays and Wednesdays are free too! The park is beautiful and has lots of working water features (rare here). We went Wednesday afternoon and almost had the place to ourselves, only saw about 20 people in about an hour. The maze was fun too, very challenging! It's pretty far to walk from the city, I recommend a cab ride (about 24 euro from the Gothic district). Stop reading this review and catch a cab to this awesome park!
  • Peaceful place to spend an afternoon and worry less about pickpockets. Good place for kids too as the maze will keep them occupied. Always seem to be one or more commercial photographers working with clients here...its photogenic.
  • Okay the maze was a bit disappointing. Other than that, it's a nice park and not too expensive for what you get. It's nice to get away from a city like that, within the city. I don't regret going here but we didn't stay very long (45 mins total I guess).
  • I took my kids up here and we had a ball. Not a big labrynth by any stretch of the imagination, but it was enough to have an ejoyable afternoon. Also, enjoyed seeing the other buildings in the park, it was scenic and peaceful.
  • Worth the short trek out of the city center. Very serene spot for a mental escape, daytime date, or studying in the park (City Wi-Fi). Lots of groundskeepers but it's still could use a touch up to be deemed pristine.
