PLACES | a gaudi tour: park güell

Finally finally finally made it to Park Güell.

The last time I was in Barcelona I caught some sort of cold or flu midway through my week there. I was so ill I couldn't even leave my hostel bed. As a result I completely missed Park Güell, one of the must-sees in Barcelona.

But because the park is such a popular tourist destination I was a bit worried about the crowds, which is why we ended up going at 8 in the morning. I had read online that if you showed up before doors officially open, the park is completely free for visitors. It seemed a bit too good to be true but I can confirm that the tip is actually sound. Not only was the park relatively empty (about 80 other people got the memo as well) but we got to catch the sunrise on the hill too. Was almost worth the tiring-as-hell bike ride up, but I think I'll probably take the bus next time.
