Did you know that Park Güell was originally designed to be a neighbourhood for well off families? Eusebi Güell, owner of the land, commissioned Antoni Gaudí to design the gardens and 60 plots where splendid modernist mansions were to be built.
Work began in 1900 but only two houses were built in the following years. In 1914, the works stopped and the park became a large private garden. In 1926, it was opened as a much loved public park and since 1984, Park Güell is listed as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
If there’s one park you and your kids will fall in love in Barcelona this is Parc del Laberint d’Horta. This beautifully landscaped park contains a unique fairytale maze were your kids can “get lost” for a while. It’s not a tough maze but fun enough to play as a family.
