It was created when a Catalan aristocrat decided to convert an old, extensive family property at the end of the 18th century. The garden’s layout, buildings and ornamentation were designed by Bagutti – an Italian architect – and Delvalet – a French gardener. It was enlarged in the mid-19th century, this part adopting a romantic style. In 1969 the family reached an agreement with Barcelona City Council who acquired the estate and opened it to the public. Restoration works began in 1993. Although the extraordinary maze is the best known part of the gardens, its other areas, statues and especially its luxuriant vegetation make a visit thoroughly enjoyable.
