Park Guell by Antonio Gaudi Park Güell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell who wanted to create a stylish park for Barcelona aristocracy. The park contains amazing stone structures (see below), stunning tiling and fascinating buildings. You can see from this picture the Gaudí dragon fountain that is at the entrance to Güell park. This dragon is adorned in beautiful coloured tiling and there is something rather hypnotic and magical about it.

4.5 Stars - 87 Reviews Avingudade del Marquès de l'Argentera When we walked from the Arc de Triomf all th way to the Barcelona Zoo we saw a lot of beautiful buildings. Because of the fact that the Zoo was our main destinations for the day we did not have too much time to look at all those buildings, but learned that all those building did have a meaning and destination. For example they house the Museum of Zoology and the Museum of geology.We did have a look at the beautiful lake, a very nice scenery enjoyable for romantics I guess. They told us that turtles good be found, but we didn’t see them, but we did see some fishes dashing through the water. Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona - Things to Do
