If you have a beautiful day out in Barcelona, I highly recommend going to Park Guell. Such a wonderful place that Antoni Gaudi envisioned and designed. I sort of felt like I was entering Wonderland. Though it wasn’t exactly easy to access. We decided to follow a tip in our guidebook – to take the Metro to Vallcarca station as there are escalators that lead up to the park. However, once you get to the top, it’s quite easy to get lost when looking for the actual access to Park Guell. Although it’s a little bit of an uphill trek, I would suggest that you go to Lesseps station where the access to the park is better indicated.
Nevertheless, here we arrived in Wonderland, I mean Park Guell. The viaducts were amazing to weave in and out of.
I was looking forward to seeing the Banc de Trencadis, a tiled bench. I didn’t quite know what to expect, a little courtyard was definitely a surprise. But the bench did not disappoint – weaving in and out, overlooking the other parts of the park.
And without a doubt, my favourite part of the park was Sala Hipostila, a forest of columns. Not only were the columns absolutely magical, so were the ceiling designs. I loved that at certain angles and parts of this space, you could get photos that looked like the space never ended. So, of course, we spent most of our time here taking photos.
The stairs and mosiacs of fountains heading towards the main entrance of the park were very pretty. I absolutely love tiled floors – and tiled walls are just as amazing.
And here we ended our half day at Park Guell – with the main entrance. Definitely a lot easier to find than the shady park entrance we came through.
