Barcelona – Can We Climb This Mountain

Parc Guell is always pretty high on the list of things to do in Barcelona. As a result it’s always packed with tourists and originally wasn’t high on my list of places to see. When I saw some pictures of the Dr Seuss-esque buildings I had to take a wee peek though.

After perfectly arranging Sagrada Familia we totally messed up with Parc Guell. Entry to the park is free but you need a ticket to enter the main section with the buildings. We tried to book on our phones from the parc but the timeslot was several hours away. The rest of the parc is amazing, the attention to detail is sublime. We had a stroll around in the sun admiring the architecture and the view which is impressive.

After Parc a Guell we took a trip up to Tibidabo. You could say it’s a bit of a trek to the edge of the city then up a mountain, it’s amazing though perhaps my favourite afternoon in Barcelona. We walked from Parc Guell to the metro which takes you to the bottom of the mountain. There are then two cute little cable cars to take you to the top. My top tip, stop by Mirabe bar for a cocktail half way. A funky little bar with a great view and saves you waiting in a queue with everyone from the first cable car.

At the top there is the most beautiful church with a cute little vintage theme park in front. A random combination but a brilliant one. The views are spectacular and apparently on a clear day you can see all the way to the Balaerics. I fell in love with the place instantly and could stayed there all afternoon.

I know a load of photos in this post but I struggled to decide which ones to share.
