A great place to relax, enjoy the coutryside and gain great views out over Barcelona. The best Gaudi architecture is at the lower, south end of Park Guell, primarily close to the southern entry. However we suggest if going by Metro getting off at Vallcarca and using escalators to almost reach the top of the Park. This way you can enjoy Park Guell walking down through it and getting more and more Gaudiesque. A fantastic pink house, the home of Antoni Gaudi for around 20 years is in the middle of the lower section.
