So here it is, the last of my Barcelona mini guides. I feel like summer is over now, time to plan next years adventures I think! If you haven’t caught up on my other two Barcelona posts you can read all about Casa Mila here and La Sagrada Familia here.
The photograph above has got to be one of the most famous images of Barcelona, and I’m not going to lie, I had to be patient to get any other tourists in the photos. It was worth it though right?
Park Guell is one of Gaudi’s, and Barcelona’s most visited attractions. It was originally intended as a gated residential community but was turned over to the city as a public park when Barcelona’s bourgeoisie seemed happier living closer to the centre of the city.
Park Guell is filled with buildings which are reminiscent of gingerbread houses, trencadis mosaics which made me feel as if I were on a Greek island, and a hall full of columns which took me back to the temples of Ancient Egypt.
Like with La Sagrada Familia, make sure yu book your tickets online in advance. I recommend sitting down before you travel and deciding which attractions you’re going to visit on which days. Another thing I’ll say about Park Guell is that it is quite a walk from the nearest metro stations, apparently, there is a but that drops you off a lot closer, and plenty of taxis, too.
Have you visited Park Guell? I think it would be amazing to visit as soon as it opens in the morning when there aren’t as many people around.
