My Trip to Barcelona - Afternoon of the second day

We had lunch in the Ramblas and continued our own walking tour to Pl. de Catalunya. From there we decided to take a bus and went to Parc Guel, one of the most beautiful parks due to its architectural elements, with works by Antoni Gaudi.

It is a place worth to see if you go to Barcelona, even being a little farer from the city centre, it is worth the trip, specially in a sunny day. 

Sustained by nice columns, this is the main belvedere of Parc Guell, always with people enjoying the view
As normal, be prepared to walk, walking throught the park can be a long journey to see everything, if you need to eat or drink something, there are some nice alternatives ten minutes from the park, specially on the "Travessera de Dalt"

As you can see there are lots of trees in the park, the green area is also good to walk with the nature around. In the main paths you can find street sellers, selling sunglasses, handbags and other counterfeit objects.

You will appreciate the loveliness of the park and its uniqueness, but that is not all, you will also have the chance to see the city, Parc Guell has splendid views over several parts of the city, so while you walk between all the green, you can look at the horizon and see the blue sea.

There are also some houses in Parc Guell, the Gaudi House Museum, the pavilion in the entrance and in the picture, the Casa Martí Trias i Doménech.

We had completed our visit in Parc Guell and decided to go to see the water show in the Magic Fountain of Montjuic. The show is worth the visit, but be prepared since there are lots of people who go there and the best places are occupied.

After the performance we headed to the Arena and had our dinner in a restaurant on the outside of the Arena Mall. Our trip to Barcelona was almost over.
