Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city and Europe’s third most-visited city and I can certainly see why! The Spanish destination is one I have visited three times not just because it’s full of delicious tapas and paella but there is wonderful architecture including nine world heritage sites, friendly locals and not one but nine beaches! Giving you the perfect city break for exploring and basking in the sunshine.
Barcelona’s breathtaking skyline can be seen from various places including rooftop bars such as the W Hotel, Bunkers Del Carmel, Teleférico (cable cars), Montjuïc Castle but my bird’s eye view, in particular, is from Parc Guell. A public park constructed in 1900, by the famous architect Antonio Gaudí who has a unique style and also started the beautiful Sagrada Família, another must see if you’re visiting Barcelona. To enter Parc Guell you have to pay a cheap admission fee, but once inside you are welcomed by a magnificent staircase adorned with a mosaic dragon and lizard, you get to see the house where Gaudi lived and also a terraced area with stunning ceramic benches, where I took this photo. No trip to Barcelona is complete without a visit.
