Barcelona: Parc Guell

In February 2019 I got to visit the stunning city of Barcelona, which had been on my bucket list for quite some time due to the stunning Gaudi architechture.

Despite being February the weather was beautiful and sunny and quite frankly not that cold we got incredibly lucky!

I want to take a moment to talk about my favourite sight from this trip and that was Parc Guell.

The outskirts of this park are free to walk around but if you want to see the Guadi architechture including the famous tiled bench that everyone has to get a photo on it is around 8 to 10 euros -if my memory serves me correctly.

I must admit I was unaware of what Parc Guell had to offer other than the famous tiled bench so wandering around the park was and seeing all of the beauty was such a joy.
There were so many beautiful spots where you could get a fantastic photo and the park itself was just idyllic we spent hours wandering around
On entry after the serpentine bench we first came acroas the El viaducto dels enamorats pictured above. These stone constructed pillars have balconies at the top and give a fabulous view over the park. We were lucky enough aswell to catch a band playing music in the passage underneath the balconies which only added to the wonderful atmosphere and relaxed us further.
We then walked down the Laundry Room Portico which again comprises of similar stone crafted pillars creating a covered walkway.
There are many different entry points into the park and of course we decided to enter at the serpentine bench. Unfortunately half of it was closed and under restoration at the time of our visit. However the parts we could see were still beautiful and the view could not be beat.
It was however a struggle to get a good photo as despite the pictures I got the area was ram packed with everyone trying to get the 'shot.'
After the views we headed down to the pavilions where the museum's, gift shops and cafe area are located and it was such a nice spot to sit and have a drink.
I can't comment on the museum's as we did not view them bit I have to say this park was my favourite moment of the trip. The whole atmosphere was so tranquil mixed in with the lovely weather and it just became a joy to wander round and listen to the birds chirping and looking at the different forms of architecture.

I'm sure I don't need to say this but if you are visiting Barcelona it is definitely well worth paying the entry for this park it is the perfect way to have a break from the hustle and bustle of visiting a capital city and it's perfect if you love nature.

Thanks for Reading!
