Travel - Barcelona, Park Guell

We have been looking over all our Barcelona images and pulling out our favourite pictures. Of course there are lots and lots of awesome pictures, so I have decided to separate them into the main attractions we saw whilst we were there.

First up is the beautiful Park Guell! I studied Gaudi Architecture as part of my GCSE in Art many years ago and have loved his work ever since. So seeing his work up close in Barcelona was amazing for me. Park Guell is so much bigger and better than you can imagine from any of the images, but here are a selection so you can at least see how amazing the park really is.
 The entrance staircase
Chilling on the famous curved benches
 Close up on the eclectic selection of materials used in his mosaic
 Messages left on Cactus leaves
 Under one of the archway tunnels
 It was insanely hot! We bought fans!
 One of the musicians in the park
 Entry way building. How amazing is that roof!
Dress: Matalan (£5 in the sale!)
Pumps: Primark (white on dusty floors - not a good plan!)
Camera: Diana
Typewriter Necklace: Etsy
 All the curved benches
 Some of the amazing tiled roof panels - check out the selection of materials used! Spot the teacup and ornament
 Amazing curved archways
 One of the walkways, look at the twists in the pillars
 View over the city from the park
 The summit!

So what do you think? Has anyone else been to Park Guell, what did you think of it? Would you like to visit Barcelona?

I'll be posting the other attractions soon!
