Barcelona Day 3 – Parks and Recreation

May 2, 2013

Feeling well and truly beat from all the walking, we decided to chill in the Park Ciutadella near the Arc de Triumph and our apartment. IMG_1361

It reminded me so much of Sydney’s Botanical Gardens, without the giant bats.

It seemed absolutely everyone in Barcelona had dogs!

I wonder if this heron had escaped from the zoo at the bottom of the park.

The above artwork and the below back wall of this restaurant was the only nice thing about it…

We found some guess inside a church courtyard.

Back to the gothic area, on our way to our favourite pinxto restaurant.
