There is something to be said about venturing off, and away from the hustle and bustle and strays of tourists you can find Laberint d’Horta, a peaceful neo-classical garden. This luscious green space designed in 1792 by the Italian engineer Domenico Bagutti,¬†resonates with the romanticism of the mid 19th century era and is a delightful space to relax in with hectares galore.

 

Here you will also find Torre Soberana, a 14th-century country house, which was restored and redecorated in the Arabesque style in the 19th century.¬†The park has become a place popular for couples, thanks to it’s peaceful and pretty passages and benches that line the gardens and make it easy to picnic. Families also visit, with many children fascinated by the maze that is located at the back of the garden. Resembling something from Alice and Wonderland, many have fun walking straight into the maze and attempting to find their way out. A graceful garden for everyone to enjoy.
