Great photos of the park, which is so beautiful. Just love all the various trees and shrubbery and how they fit in so well with the park. The surrounding buildings fit in so well and the views are amazing. I could certainly spend a whole day here on a sunny one and just relax and take it all in!

The park looks great - I didn't get there on my last trip to Barcelona so need to remedy that this time.
It was a great taste of the history!

Day 2 - Park Guell Part 2 - More Photos!


Hearing all the wonderful information in the shade

there's what would have been a marketplace down here





I'm sure I was trying to catch a Pokemon






these icons on the ceiling would symbolize what merchants would sell underneath!





This lizard/dragon is a pretty famous icon for the park















Refreshed with some hydration in hand!















At the end of the tour there was a bit of free time to get a beverage and browse the gift shop. We got two bottles of water and a coloring book based on Gaudiís designs. I havenít used it yet I was definitely catching Pokemon throughout the park too... but the screenshots save last in my photos so I'm not sure the timing on the Snapchats/Pokemon sightings...

We headed back to the van and onto our next stop of the day!


The bus parking is even nice

Up Next: Day 2 - More to see!

The whole place is beautiful and love all the colors of the buildings and especially the roman columns. Seems like it was a worthwhile tour!

Isn't it just an amazing place? It took us until about our second or third visit to Barcelona to make it out there, but I'm glad we finally did.

Thanks for the amazing pictures, we plan on visiting the Park before our cruise next September. If you are not with a tour guide, is the Park easy to visit on your own?
