Spain Viaje - July 2014
Next up is another famous work of Gaudí, Parc Guell. Located on the hillside overlooking Barcelona and the Mediterranean sea beyond. Originally intended as a residential community with 60 single family homes, but never became successful so it's now a park. The entrance has two gingerbread looking houses.
The next morning we decided to take one of those Hop on Hop off bus tours around the city. Starting at Plaza Espana, one of the largest squares in Barcelona. This used to be a sight for public hangings(nice:-(). The red circular building in the background was built in 1900 and used to be a bullring. Now it houses a shopping mall.
