I wish I am in Barcelona right now! But I am happy that once in my life I was there! Barcelona is one of my favorite cities in Europe. Sad to say, I did not see a lot of sight during our visit. One of my fave sights in Catalonia’s capital city is Park Güell. This garden complex with an architectural design and elements is a perfect place to go and unwind especially during summer. It is situated on the hill of El Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona.

During our visit, our tour guide show us around including the Gaudi House Museum, the Doric columns, Bird nests, Pavilion at the entrance, Gaudí’s unique tiles in Parc Güell, Colonnaded footpath, the dragon and other interesting sights in this garden. That was so far a wonderful trip in Barcelona.

Par Güell was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It has an extension of 17.18 ha (0.1718 km²), which makes it one of the largest architectural works in south Europe. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Works of Antoni Gaudí”.
