An amazing excursion in Barcelona
In the center of Barcelona you can enjoy this great and wonderful park. Park Guell was designed and built by Antoni Gaudí, together with his assistant Josep Maria Jujol between 1900-1914.
The park, which is not really a park but a failed construction project is very large and unprecedented in their natural forms, spiral tower stairs and giant lizards. In addition, much of the park is filled with wonderful mosaics.
A large terrace in the middle of the park with a long beautiful mosaic bench where you can relax and enjoy the art, architecture, people and has a great panoramic view of Barcelona.
You often see musicians (who are not beggars, and know what they play) sit here and play, providing a pleasant atmosphere.
Above the site is a great outdoor cafe with drinks and light meals as baguettes and snacks. You order what you want in anything resembling a cave in the rock.
