Architect Antoni Gaudí’s Park Güell is a pretty standard stop on any Barcelona itinerary. The park started out as part of a housing project in the early 20th century, but was eventually converted into a municipal garden. From the Gran Placa Circular, there is an amazing cityscape over Barcelona, which stretches as far as the Mediterranean Sea. The intriguing and unusual nature of Park Güell’s architecture really reflected the overall feeling of Barcelona for me. Like the park, I felt like Barcelona itself was filled with endless nooks and hideaways waiting to be discovered.
