Picnic at the Park Güell – Barcelona, Spain
Bring some local tapas and a strong Spanish coffee for a picnic at an outdoor park-meets-museum. Barcelona’s Park Güell is a masterpiece by famed architect Antoni Gaudi. Colorful tiles cover nearly every surface. The structures, sculptures and pillars are accented with lush vegetation. Finding the fun (think giant rainbow-hued lizard!) motifs displayed throughout the park makes it hard to believe that it was constructed over 100 years ago as a site for upscale homes.
Walking through the park you’ll notice a “pink tower,” which is the Gaudí House Museum, a classic show-home preserved from when the area was a builder’s showcase. The joy of visiting this World Heritage Site lies in discovering a hidden artistic element at every turn – like the undulating bench overlooking the city of Barcelona. Snag a seat on the bench for a Spanish tapas picnic and marvel at all its creative splendor.
