Barcelona Travel Guide

Q: why are travellers cheques not accepted by banks in Calpe, Spain?
A: Unfortunately this is becoming more and more common in Spain. It seems the banks & exchange bureaux do not like the admin and the increasing risk of forgery.

 Traveler Reviews and Information

"Everywhere you turn there is something new to awe you. It reminds me of a page out of a Dr. Suess book! Gaudi was one brilliant man!"
Lois R says:
"Is it a park? Is it an outdoor museum? Is it an architectural garden? You will have to go there to make up your own mind but for now I’ll call it a magnificent memorial to Antonio Gaudi, a world-famous Barcelona creative artists in the artform of ceramic mozaics. Well he’s known for a variety of architectural wonders but Parc Guell is the place to see his unusual art-forms set in a huge garden on the outskirts of Barcelona. It is on a hill and can be steep but the walk is just fantastic because there is something to catch your eye wherever you look. From the minute you arrive at the entrance you know you are in for something really special. A large, mozaic dragon fountain greets you at the bottom of rather special steps which lead you up to a massive ‘’temple’‘ with huge pillars and stunning, colourful mozaic wheels in the centre. This is actually under the public courtyard up top, which features ceramic tiles in hundreds of colours and designs. You can sit here and make up your mind which part of the park you want to go to first. Expect to be surprised! I guess Gaudi’s patron, a Eusebi Guell, who commissioned him to create the park, was extremely excited about it when work started in 1900. In 1923 the local council bought it and opened the ‘’wonder’‘ to the world.. Gaudi actually lived in a house on the site which is now a museum. I did not go in but believe it to be worthy of your time as it even has some of the furniture he used along with the history behind this unique Barcelona park. At some vantage points you can see stunning views of Barcelona city and traditional Spanish villas nearby. Parc Guell is a treasure, take your camera as you may well not see anything like this again."
Caroline Clark says:
"This is a real one off place, a 'must see' if you visit Barcelona. allow plenty of time to wander around and absorb the atmosphere"
Totir Alexandru says:
"This place, this park, is unique in its architecture. There are works of art everywhere you look. It's breathtakingly beautiful."
Beverley Ringart says:
"One place I will never forget is the Park Guel in Barcelona. Mr. Gaudi has created a fairyland for grown ups as every pathway leads to another magical place. Enjoy!"
