Parc Güell

We visited Antoni Gaudi’s Parc Güell one evening. We started at the top of a very large hill (a series of escalators were very helpful in getting us there) and watched the sun set, then wound our way down to the main terrace. It was a fun end to a long day.

Parc y Jardin

We visited two different gardens in Barcelona. The first, Parc del Laberint d’Horta, was near our hostel. While we were in the labyrinth, there was a group of developmentally disabled adults who were thoroughly enjoying their outing. There was also a large group of school children. From their vantage point above, the kids shouted to us (in English!) which directions we should turn. We pretended not to be able to hear them well and took many wrong turns, which resulted in shrieks of dismay.

The second garden was on the coast, overlooking the cruise ship docks and was called Jardins de Mossèn Costa i Llobera. It was full of cacti and palm trees and exotic (to us) flowers. We stumbled across it by accident while looking for the way to a funicular.

The last picture in this series was an accident, but we liked it a lot.
