Why locals love it

This is so over-run that the council even set up escalators to the top of the hill. But, and this is a big but, the minute you escape further up the hill, the crowds thin out and there are nice and quiet picnic tables. Parc Güell has a magical quality that seems to make the hours disappear - and you have some stunning views of Barcelona.

Why you should visit it

There's no shame in hitting the tourist trail for this one - Gaudi's mad talent is on full display, and it's one of those things that are not to be missed.

Special tip

Bring a packed lunch and avoid being ripped off in the kiosks and restaurants on the site.

I loved the park. It's an unmissable site in Spain, but begs the question: is sustainable tourism really attainable?

This is an unmissable opportunity in Barcelona! It made my list of top things to do before you leave the city.

Of course I love the Park Güell :) who doesn't? Tip: needn't pay for the entrance, just go in for free and will have a general view of every detail but in a distance, still enough for a nice photo; will save not only money but time in every single queue for every sngle item...
