To complete our tour of Gaudi sights in Barcelona, Mr. Selfish and I visited Güell Park. The park was built in the years 1900-14. It was one of Gaudi’s earlier works and is not as out there as the other sights we visited. Nevertheless, it is a very enjoyable park.

The entrance contains the iconic mosaic salamander, and the main terrace is designed like a sea serpent.

The park itself was pretty relaxing and tranquil. Some parts had more Gaudi design, and others just had nice views of the city.

Finally, we went to Turó dels Tres Creus (the Hill of Three Crosses) for the view across Barcelona as the sun was setting. You could see La Sagrada Família from the hill.

This post concludes our tour of Gaudi sights in Barcelona. Tomorrow, we’ll look at some of the other non-Gaudi things to do in the city.
