PARK GÜELL

…And after our fun-filled tour at Camp Nou, we headed to Park Güell. This was finally the time when I would get to go in and experience it fully. (During our last visit we spent too much time on the outside grounds of the park and didn’t even make it inside before the park closed. See that post here). It was insanely hot this day, so what was the first thing on our to-do list? We headed into the café, grabbed a beer and cooled down of course…

And then we managed to make it to the heart of the park…

Park Güell is another one of Antoni Gaudi’s works in Spain. It sits on top of Carmelo Hill in Barcelona and has spectacular views of the city. It is full of gardens and architecture inspired by nature. You truly feel as if you are being transported into another world when walking into this magical place…..or Whoville. You also feel like you are being transported into Whoville. This place screams Dr. Suess….or maybe Dr. Suess screams Park Güell. If I did my research correctly, Park Güell actually beat Suess to it!

You see this lizard EVERYWHERE you go in the city. It is in all of the touristy shops…on shotglasses, mugs, t-shirts, you name it. It’s definitely one of the symbols used to represent Barcelona. And it lives right here in Park Güell.

…and this thing was harder to get a picture with than a princess at Disneyland. Everyone wanted a piece of it, and we were prepared to wait for it!

There were three levels to the park, and we didn’t want to miss a thing. It was so fun just walking around observing the artistry of the place. Here’s how we spent our time:
