Park Guell in Barcelona Spain

Today I wanted to talk about another one of my favorite things I saw and did in Barcelona- Park Güell!

Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain

We took the bus up to Park Guell then we walked up a very big hill to the entrance. Park Guell, like Casa Batllo, La Pedrada, and La Sagardra Familia, is another work by the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. It was supposed to be a housing development with high quality modern homes, art, and a sense of community. It didn’t quite take off, though, so today it’s a park with the Gaudi House Museum on the grounds as well. So when you get to the park you can buy tickets at this part of it to the monumental zone, or if you keep walking you can enter the park itself for free at a different location which is what we did.

La Sagadra Familia in Barcelona

Welcome back for another post about my European adventures. On our second day we went to Basilica de La Sagadra Familia which was one of my favorite parts of the trip and you’ll see why when you look at the pictures below! You can check out my journey from Barcelona to Sitges and what I did on day one in Sitges in the previous posts. So day 2 I was pretty jet lagged and slept about half the day. When I finally did pull myself out of bed I wandered around town for a little bit on my own while Molly was at her conference and then I came back to the hotel and had a fancy lunch by myself at the Iris Restaurant in the Estela Hotel.

I also started reading my book Rising Strong by Brené Brown who I LOVE. I highly recommend checking out any of her books she is fabulous. This was flat bread with tomato spread and extra virgin olive oil with marinated tuna tataki with soy, honey, aromatics and crispy sesame. YUM. The best part about this trip was that everything I ate was fantastic and if you know me you know that is VERY important to me.

I love the eyes on the doors of the restaurant. This is looking into the lobby of the hotel. That night Molly and I hopped on the bus with the people in her conference and headed into Barcelona for an excursion to La Sagadra Familia.
