Parc Guell Barcelona

Parc Guell was my favourite place in Barcelona.


Built by Gaudi in the 1900's it's a park full of buildings and passageways that look as though they've been designed by someone who has never been constricted by what they thought a building should look like. It's amazing. Every single part of it is curved and colourful and I can't even imagine how 'out there' all of this must've been a hundred years ago. 





We wandered around taking it all in from the passageways to the princess style tower...



...to my favourite building ever; I don't know the official name but to me it looks like a gingerbread house come to life.


We wandered around the gardens chatting and catching up on life. I don't see my friend very often but when I do it's like no time has passed. Definitely the best type of friendship with our hectic schedules and busy lives.  It was so nice spending whole days together rather than a quick coffee or film on a weeknight.


We spent the afternoon there before taking in one final view:


A little tip if you're planning on going (which I would really recommend) is that this part of the park is really hard to find so give yourself extra time. We left enough time to get there but no extra and were power walking in the sun at the end to make our timeslot. We went in the morning which I would really recommend because by the time we were leaving the heat was unreal. Also just be aware of the 'anti-tourist' feeling at the moment in Barcelona, we didn't have any trouble just saw a lot of 'go home tourist' type graffiti but I would just keep it in mind.

Let me know if you end up going, I'd love to hear about it.
