The Main Terrace

The Main Terrace

Not a bad looking day for December. Winter in Spain is a pretty pleasant experience. The days were in the mid teens, the nights cooled down a bit – maybe to around 8-10℃ or so.

This is a photograph of the main terrace in Parc Güell. It was originally meant to hold a market place for locals but, since the housing development that was supposed to surround this space never took off, it remains an open area. It would be interesting to see what Gaudi's original plans were for the completed development but I haven't really checked any of that out yet.

The whole feeling in the park was really kind of serene, whimsical and magical. On a sunny, warm day in December while on vacation, it's not hard to get in a good mood while wandering through a park but Parc Güell certainly is an agreeable place to spend an afternoon.

My other photographs of Barcelona can be found in the gallery.
