Weekend Getaways from Barcelona
We started early next day and headed to Park Guell. Since Park Guell is located away from the city, we started early. Though getting there can be a little bit tricky as it is located near hills, there are buses (24 and 92) to the entrance gates. The Park Guell has very strict entry times for the monumental zone. The monumental zone is magnicificnet with creations of Gaudi's artworks. It is advisable to book tickets online for Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia as the queues for tickets are quite huge. We then headed to La Sagrada Familia followed by Casa Batlo, the vintage Gothic quarter and La Ramblas - the lively shopping and eatery place in the city. We ended our trip with a visit to the beach at the Mediterranean Sea and dinner at the beach facing restaurants. We headed back to our BnB taking a good night's sleep to get ready for our flight early morning for Paris.

Gingerbread houses of Gaudi being one of the symbols of the capital of Catalonia, are found on postcards, magnets and other souvenirs. And we can find them in the Park Güell. In 1900, the richest man in Catalonia, Eusebi Güell, decided to make an investment in such a housing complex, and Antoni Gaudi was hired for architectural work. However, for unknown reasons the project failed and out of 62 sites that housed the city, it was possible to file only 2. After the death of Güell, his descendants sold the city park to the City Hall of Barcelona.
Parc de la Ciutadella
Barcelona is full of green parks which is a must for me in a big city. One of them I visit very often, Ciutadella, because it has a wonderful fountain and a lake. But what differentiates it from all the other parks is a statue of a life-size mammoth next to the lake. Apart from clicking pictures of this huge mammoth, this park also has a zoo to visit. There are beautiful lakes and museums inside to visit too. A great place to relax and learn!
How can you leave beaches out of a Barcelona itinerary? So, here it is. One of the most amazing places to warm up and indulge in some sunbathing in Barcelona- Barceloneta Beach. The mediocre tourist spends all day in the sun at crowded Barceloneta Beach finding a square meter to place his towel and always in danger to get robbed. The further you move from the center the less crowded it gets and you will spot more surfers in the water. Dare to hop on a boat yourself? Also there are many other beautiful places to enjoy the sun: On one of the many terraces in the city with a cold beer, grab a bike and climb to the top of Tibidabo to get a great view of the city.
