The city has so much to offer that my weekend trip could not cover even half of the main attractions and not to mention all the treasure off the beaten path! I tried to see the main sights and still retain some time for myself to get lost around.
The city is linked by a very efficient transport system and a good map made it easy to get from one place to the other! I did have to ask few times about the directions to El Carmel – a former bunker with amazing views.
Let’s made a quick trip to Park Guell and hike the El Carmel for city panoramas.
Guess some people cannot be bothered to take the stairs 🙂
I love the twisted columns.
Mozaic is Gauid’s domain.
A standard view from Park Guell towards the city.
A bit chaotic. Also this Gaudi’s house on the left looks a bit like a hedgehog !
The weather wasn’t great and it was January, but the crowds and queues… how does it look in the summer then?!
Everybody wants to get a good shot. Or two. Or million…
Let’s take a selfie!
A perspective again. It was difficult to get this shot. Constant waves of people!
Looks busy already! I am not sure if you have watched Emerald City – a new series from CNBC. Do you recognize the this? 🙂
Park Guell from the autside. This looks more like World of Warcraft theme than a park to be honest!
Random inhabitants of the park.
A closer look at Sagrada and how congested the city is.
A very close look at Sagrada
It wasn’t as dangerous as it seems 🙂
Northern Barcelona’s coast. The weather wasn’t good to appreciete the view.
Southern Barcelona – a view towards the airport (in the background)
A random city quarter
Torre agbar. The tower has quite few names. Some express exactly what it looks like 🙂
That was quite a wave!
Some people admired the views, Some younger prefered to look at their phones. It’s quite sad.
One more view. I just couldn’t get enough!
Views like that…Can you imagine having a terrace with such a view?
I wonder… these do not look any good, but the views must be amazing. So must be the prices. Why not renovate them then?
My first thought was this was a broken Apple logo. But,,,
But not quite 🙂
