I still have dreams about this city and the amazing food I ate here. Park Guell was a bit of a problem child. I knew I wanted to go, I knew that tickets sold out, but I didn't care and didn't plan well for this. Where I was staying was REALLY FAR from the park. Frankly from what I remember all the subway stops were nowhere even close to this park. Long story short, the first blistering hot afternoon I ventured to the park it was sold out. So I went to the beach (great trade off, am I right?)
The next morning I set out early, pre purchased ticket in hand. It wasn't as miserable climbing up the steep hills leading to the park with the morning shade. I had stopped for some brioche at the bakery next to the airbnb and took my time enjoying this masterpiece. The photos aren't even close to doing it justice.
