Park Guell and the Picasso Museum


This morning we took the metro up and then walked to Park Guell, a large city park designed by Gaudi. Here are a few pics from there.

The entrance.

View of Barcelona from the top of the hill.

Cool stone chair.




Overall, we honestly weren't really impressed. There was some cool architecture, but we weren't sure it was worth the long metro ride and long walk involved.

Afterwards, after what was really the only mediocre lunch we have had yet, we went to the Picasso Museum. It was fabulous. It was the only museum founded while the artist was still alive, and was also the only one founded on his express wishes. It was heavily weighted towards his early works, but it was really cool to see the evolution of his style. No pictures allowed, though, sorry.

Last night we went to a great restaurant called Cerveceria Catalana

We got there 15 minutes after it opened and only had to wait a few minutes for a table. When we left we had trouble getting out it was so crowded. The food was fantastic.

Tomorrow we plan to see some Gaudi and the archaeological museum.
