This great park was once a fortress damaged in 1878. Now it is a beautiful garden and home of exhibitions. The best place in Barcelona to spend a relaxing, sunny afternoon.

You can find in the park museums of zoology and geology. The wonderful cascades have stairs to the top from where you can enjoy a great view over the garden. The Parliament of Catalonia is also located in the park.

You can enjoy the museums, the architecture of the buildings and the zoo which is also here. You can rent a boat on the lake in the center of the park and watch the birds on the water, so tranquilizing.

Everything is so quiet here, a green island with birdsong in a crowded city as Barcelona is really worth experiencing. :)

Another very interesting and I would say unique attraction is the The Guëll park. You would be surprised by what you will see here as it has a design like no other parks. Antonio Gaudi had something to do with the design as he designed the main staircase, so you must expect the extraordinary and the surrealistic. There is a more ordinary park called Parc de la Ciutadella that offers good [...]
