Park Güell is a popular park in Barcelona and a hot tourist spot. Designed by Antoni Gaudí, the structures in the park echo natural forms, very fluid and smooth. It’s not so much a park as it is a sight-seeing destination, with the buildings looking like fairytale Hansel and Gretel houses – very cute! The area isn’t very big, but has a lot of up-and-down slopes.. difficult to climb in summertime ;) We spent most of the time chilling out on the benches and people-watching instead, since it was way more fun than traipsing around the park ;)

Very very very long escalators leading up to the park entrance

Mosaic art all over the park

At the top of the stairs, with a half-naked man (with a nice back!) near me, haha

Enjoying ourselves at the summit

They say the architecture looks like Hansel and Gretel houses :P

Did you know? Gaudí used the shape of buttocks left by a naked workman sitting in wet clay
to design the curvature of the bench surface… LOL..
