And so escape we did, my pal Beth and I. We took the green line from Liceu all the way up to Mundet. As we walked out of the metro we were confronted by open space and big skies. We weren't exactly sure where the Labyrinth was, but a kind gentleman saw us and, guessing we were on an adventure, pointed us in the right direction.
We trotted off down the road and there it was. We paid something like 2.33€ each (random!) and entered.
Eventually finding our way out, we explored the rest of the park. We meandered the path next to the 'romantic canal' and into the 'romantic gardens'.
If you are ever in Barcelona for an extended stay, it is certainly worth a little visit on a sunny day (when does the sun not shine in Barcelona?)...
