August 23, 2010

Barcelona is extremely well-known for its incredible parks. Montjuic, Ciutadella and who can forget about one of Gaudí’s greatest designs, Park Güell. Each of these parks are universally recognized as a great place to relax and take in the sun. They all have very special and unique characteristics that are essential in order to experience a full-on Barcelona experience.

Montjuic is the name of a famous mountain in the city of Barcelona. Due to its very vivid greenery and outstanding views of the city and of the Plaza España, this mountain is one of the most visited sites in this city. This mountain provides you with a full view of the entire scenery of Barcelona and is full of amazing resting spots. While checking out this place you’ll definitely run into one of the numerous symbols of the 1992 Olympic Games held in Barcelona, it really is a must-see.

El parque de la Ciutadela is surely another crucial tourist attraction in Barcelona. It draws in its visitors with its majestic waterfall monument, located directly in the center the park. Due to the World’s fair of 1888 held in Barcelona Antoni Gaudí also had his hand in the creation of this piece. If you enjoy live music, then visiting the center of this park is going to be a thrill. There are often several musical groups that perform freely through the late afternoon, making everyone’s experience an unforgettable one.

Last but not least we recommend Park Güell, Gaudí’s masterpiece. This park is located on the upper part of Barcelona and represents the artistic movement of Catalan Modernism. Its abundant iconographic elements and endless greenery are what make this magnificent park one of the world’s most famous Heritage Site of UNESCO. Built during the first decade of the twentieth century, it represents Gaudi’s Naturalist phase, which directly involves many small monuments and works of art influenced by fantastic and mythological creatures.

So if you’re looking to spend a nice, quite and serene afternoon in a park in Barcelona, then look no further and don’t hesitate in visiting the wonders of this great city.
