Parc Guell is another Gaudi’s attraction you should not miss in Barcelona.
To get there, you can take metro or bus from the city centre. We took a TMB bus no 92 from one of the bus stop at Carrer de la Industria, in the vicinity of Sagrada Familia. Since Parc Guell is still within Zone 1 of Barcelona city, our T-10 card was usable to pay for the bus fare.
The sun was shining bright that day, enhancing the charismatic identity of the park.
Looking around with awe, we told each other what a great miss it would have been if we did not make it here. We were overslept that very morning and almost cancelled Parc Guell from our visit plan that day.
While preparing this article, we just noted that there were 3 recommended routes you can follow to enjoy Parc Guell at its very best; Sant Josep de la Muntanya, Carrer d’Olot and Placa de la Natura. We did not follow any particular route during our visit, but then we realized that the path we followed was quite similar to the route of Placa de la Natura.
This park has kept us wandered inside for hours. We did not mind spending the whole day here but time has envied us. We had earlier promised to meet an old friend for lunch at Placa Catalunya hence the limited time.
The park was getting more and more crowded towards the middle of the day. Glancing at time, we decided to make our move to the nearest metro station. There were 2 metro stations nearby, Vallcarca and Lesseps. Both were in green line (L3), but we opted for Lesseps.
So we walked further up and continued downhill but the sign just kept us walking further. It’s only then we learned that the nearest metro station was actually quite a walking distance away. Maybe we should have wait for a bus instead!
Take our advice girls, drop your heels if you plan to take the metro to Parc Guell. Get a comfy shoes instead. I can’t imagine climbing up in heels and later being too tired to explore the park when you finally got there.
