the labyrinth park story

labyrinth park origins 

The Labyrinth Park in Barcelona has its origins back in 1791. The Marquis of Llupià i Alfarràs dedicated a plot of land on his estate to create a neoclassical garden. With Italian architect Domenico Bagutti and French gardener Josep Devalet on board the first part of the garden was built.

In the 1850’s the next generation of the Desvalls family expanded the garden. Local boy Elies Rogent added gazebos, flower beds and even a waterfall. A small canal was also built to connect the upper and middle terraces. Next came the lower terrace with the cypress tree maze and domestic garden right behind the Desvalls palace.

The Labyrinth Park Barcelona became one of the ‘in’ places, holding many social and cultural events. The park has hosted Spain’s sovereign on three occasions.

The park was given to the city in 1967 and was opened to the public four years later. There was a huge restoration in 1994 and the 55 hectare site is now open all year around for everyone to enjoy. 

There is no doubt that this park is the green jewel of the Horta and Guinardó district. It is popular with locals who want to paint, take photographs or sit in quiet contemplation. The park is also the home of the Torre Soberana, a 14th-century country house, which was restored and redecorated in the Arabesque style in the 19th century.
