Güell Park, Barcelona
This colourful garden complex is located on the hill of El Carmel in the Gracia district. Designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, it was portrayed in the recent Woody Allen movie ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’.
Be ready to walk around and up and down steps, as Gaudí avoided levelling the grounds so that the park follows the natural contours of the land. At the very top is a terraced area with amazing views of the park and of the city. Sit down and relax on the multi-coloured tiled mosaic seats while you take in the sun.
