After driving by several of the buildings designed by Gaudi , we headed up the hill to what, at the turn of the 20th century was the outskirts of Barcelona and an area where the upper class had built a few homes to enjoy fresh air and view of the city.  Our destination was Parc Guell.  A park designed by Gaudi.  It was absolutely breathtaking.  There were so many photo ops  that I put away my camera and bought a book.  However I did manage to take a few pictures.  For more info on Parc Guell go to the following link.

The Gaudi House Museum.

Like I said, the whole park was just something else.  It's very hard to explain what you are seeing.  It really needs to be experienced. If you go to Barcelona this is an absolute MUST SEE!!!!!

I agree, this is something that you just have to see. And maybe see it TWICE! The first time it takes you off guard and you walk around thinking "what in the world is all of this?". Then the second time you can really enjoy all of the details.

Good job catching some of the fantastic views in the park.
