This was the last full day in Barcelona for me and my brother. Both of us were pretty sick, so we didn’t take many pictures of each other. And the ones we did, well, I won’t post them because I look sick. Ha!
That day we went to Park Guell, which was built between 1900 and 1915 . It was commissioned by Eusebi Guell and designed by Antoni Gaudi.
Since we took a metro to get there, we needed to walk for about 20 minutes to enter the park. But it was definitely worth it. There were great views over the city and plenty of architecture to see.
The house below was actually the place where Gaudi lived there until his death in 1926.
An interesting fact: The park was originally supposed to be a commercial housing development, which turned out to be an unsuccessful venture.
Afterwards we went to Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf. It was built in 1888 as the main access gate for the 1888 World Fair.
I must admit that people there, at least the ones we met, were extremely nice and helpful, including this police officer.
We walked A LOT that day! To be honest with you, I don’t even remember what majority of the pictures we took are. *Haha!* However, I had to share this one.
This was a street show in front of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia. Spanish people definitely know how to capture tourist attention!

Great pics! I have never been to Barcelona. Too bad you weren’t feeling well on your trip but I’m sure that didn’t stop you from having fun.
