Jardins del Laberint d’Horta

Gardens in Camp Nou, Pedralbes & La Zona Alta

Laid out in the late 18th century by Antoni Desvalls, Marquès d’Alfarràs i de Llupià, this carefully manicured park remained a private family idyll until the 1970s, when it was opened to the public. The laberint ('labyrinth' in Catalan) refers to the central maze; other paths take you past a pleasant artificial lake, waterfalls, a neoclassical pavilion and a false cemetery. The last is inspired by 19th-century romanticism, characterised by an obsession with a swooning vision of death.

Scenes of the film adaptation of Patrick Süskind’s novel Perfume were shot in the gardens.
