We went to the Labrynth park in Barcelona for some fun recreation of the Ariadne and Theseus myth. We knew that the thread was the most indispensable thing in order to defeat the Minotaur, so we thought ahead and got some red wool to use it as the clue to find the exit of the labrynth :)
The Ariadne and Theseus myth is the motto of the creation of this neoclassic garden, finished on the early years of the 19th, that was once the private park of a Barcelona family called Desvalls.
The garden is a great place to escape of the city for a few hours specially as it is easily reachable by subway: Mundet stop on the L3 (green) line plus 5-10 minute walk.
We were there on a Sunday (free entrance day), but I guess it is not a great idea in the good weather seasons as it is fully packed with people with kids playing, crashing a little the “lost-feeling” inside the labrynth. During summer, we would recommend visiting it in weekdays and, even better, next to the closing hour (from 6 to 9pm) to enjoy a good light.
Ready to save that Theseus from the Minotaur claws :)
There is a neoclassic sculpture in the center of the Labrynth for the lucky ones that reach it. This time, somehow (I will not blame anyone here…ehem..), we weren’t able to find it.
Loosing the thread to leave the clue.
Thanks Anna and Albert for following the Ariadne’s thread with us :)
I wore my miniature spools necklace in case we ran out of thread to find the exit :)
“Like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps”

I love mazes! Australia claims to have the largest maze, “Tasmazia” which I visited almost a year ago now :) If you ever come to Australia I vote you go there!
We would loooove to visit Australia one day! :) I have looked for tasmazia maze images and is the cutest place!!! Chubby greenery walls and colorful houses :) Sure it will be a must when we are able to travel there.
Such beautiful photos!
Ejem ejem… Crec que estic guanyant punts en això de la orientació… A la pròxima guio jo!!! Jejeje
Per cert, molt chules les fotos!!
Nice photos in a nice place!!!
I think this might be a stroller friendly park.
Did you only see children or babies as well?
How long was it for you to find your way out of the labyrinth?
Great post by the way!
Thanks!! There were both kids and babies in the park, however inside the labrynth mostly children running ;) With the pictures and everything we were about 1h inside the maze, but it is not very big, if you only wish to find the exit it would be around 15 minutes! :) The surroundings of the maze are also beautiful.
I love the idea of taking the wool (symbolic as the thread, of course) to a labyrinth, quite clever indeed. The pictures are cute, looks like you guys had a nice day!
