Three Days In Barcelona - #2: Park Guell, Joan Miro, and Parc Monjuic
Pictures from a pretty much perfect day in Barcelona, 10 November 2017. I started with a morning visit to Park Guell, where I had tickets to the Gaudi House Museum and a Park tour. But my morning started off with an exciting look at lots of Monk Parakeets. They're evidently introduced in Barcelona, and have a thriving population.
This is The Gaudi House Museum. Beautiful! I'm so in love with Gaudi!
Walking along the grounds, there are causeways you can walk on or under.
I saw my first Eurasian Hoopoe! So very cool!
The structure is the central plaza of Park Guell, which is a sort of structure with a gorgeous windy bench along the outside edge. You can see the back of the bench here.
Under and to one side of that structure.
Under the structure; I was on a tour, so went back after to take another picture. This is a gorgeous gathering place. The structure also gathered rain water.
The famous salamander! It's in front of the plaza structure.
Another view of the salamander.
A better view of the ceiling under the plaza structure.
A bit of the bench area.
And that was my morning visit to Park Guell. Then I got on a bus and then took the metro to Parc Montjuico, and took a cable car thing up to the Fundacion Joan Miro. Miro is both playful and sometimes disturbing. Here's playful.
