“My best-kept secret travel tip is in Barcelona and is called the "Maze Park" (Parque del Laberinto).
Parque del Laberinto is the oldest garden in the city and it was designed in 1791 by the owner, Joan Desvalls, Marquis of Llupià and ALfrràs. This truly magic place full of gardens, waterfalls, streams, ponds and canals is situated in the northern part of Barcelona, away from the busy tourist centre of the city. It shows a mix of styles: Arabic, Mediterranean, Neoclassical and Romantic. During the 19th century its was used for cultural events and for open-air theatre performances.”
