Parc Guell


Parc Guell is definitely my top favorite places in Barcelona.
The view is absolutely incredible
 Gaudi sure did some amazing stuff with mosaics.

I can't wait to go back on a sunny day and have a picnic,
because I know the view is going to be even more incredible.

When you go:
- Make sure to wear comfy walking shoes.
It's a steep climb up
I read that the streets resemble san francisco streets with all the hills,
 which made me happy
- Don't miss the more secret panoramic view spot

As always, your pictures just leave me speechless - so beautiful! while living abroad I took a million photos (none nearly as gorgeous as these!) but back in the States now I don't have as much to photograph. Heading back to Istanbul in a week so I look forward to giving my camera a workout again!

Happy weekend, love!!

I love the Parc Guell! It is a steep climb though. I dressed way too warmly that day and was a sweaty, grumpy mess by the time we got there. Thankfully the beautiful park quickly put me back in a good mood!

Just wanted to say hi. I am in the midst of a summer traveling adventure, and we spent five nights in Barcelona. I looked through your posts to get a feel for it. They are wonderful. I also studied abroad in Spain, but only for a summer during college. It is quite the beautiful country. :)
