Park_Guell_Barcelona_Little_Big_Bell

I have just returned from a long weekend away in Barcelona.

The last time I was in Barcelona was around 15 years ago and I was so looking forward to revisiting Antoni Gaudi’s work.

Unfortunately, the Sagrada Familia was closed to visitors on the day that I visited.

Luckily, I was able to visit the beautiful Park Guell designed by him.
