More Gaudi

  Monday, December 15, 2014 / Stephanie / Exploration  

After Sagrada Familia, we hadn't yet had our fill of Gaudi. We took the metro to Park Guell. Half the fun here was getting to the park up..and up...and up! Good thing there were escalators installed into the hillsides. We continued to the topmost point in the park for a amazing view of Barcelona with Sagrada Familia in the distance. Park Guell was intended to be a gated community. Just seeing the gatehouse and entering felt a bit like we had stepped into the world of Dr. Seuss.   Here again we admired Gaudi's architecture as we explored the park.   LOTS to see, LOTS of walking...still the same day but we weren't finished with Barcelona just yet!
