Park Guell, Barcelona


Park Guell is up on the hill (though not very high) and the hop-on-off tourist buses only get you to the foot of the hill.  To walk up it is about 5-10mins.  Buying tickets online is recommended because if you buy on the day, you may be allocated with an entry time that is 1 or 2hrs later on a busy day.

Casa Mila (La Pedrera), Barcelona


Apart from touring around with the hop-on-off bus, we went back to Casa Mila to see the inside.  Our ticket option allowed us to see the roof, the attic and one of the apartment.  Again, buying tickets online is recommended to avoid the queue.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We went up to the tower on the Nativity facade.  You go up by elevator and walk down by stairs.  There is still a lot of construction every where.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Great view from the tower.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Touring around Barcelona – 1 – Eixample area


We arrived Barcelona in the morning and our first stop was breakfast.IMG_6791

We then walked over to our first attraction – Casa Mila (La Pedrera) and was disappointed to find that the exterior is under construction.

The queue for getting inside to see the building was quite long so we decided to go back another day after getting tickets online.

We then walked down to see Casa Batllo and Casa Amatller.  We didn’t go inside and again, queue was quite long.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are a lot of beautiful buildings in the area…IMG_6788 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
