Parc Guell was also designed by Gaudi, and it might be my favorite spot in all of Barcelona. Sitting atop the hill of el Carmel in the Gracia district, Parc Guell not only offers an amazing view of the city, but it's also filled with amazing stone structures, stunning mosaic tiling, and fascinating buildings, one of which Gaudi himself lived in at one time. And at the top of Parc Guell is a terraced area where a serpentine bench covered in colorful tiles winds around the park. It's truly a lovely place to spend an afternoon.
