>> Park Güell <<
Despite the intention of the Catalan government to charge tourists who want to access the park, the Park Güell is still free. It is one of the most important works by the Catalan artist Antoni Gaudí. The park is opened from 10.00am to 6.00pm or 9.00pm (according to the season of the year). You can get there by metro line 3, Lesseps stop, or by bus (numbers 24, 31, 32, 74, 92 and the red line of the touristic bus).

It is the biggest market in Catalonia, full of colors and with a wide food offer. It is located at Las Ramblas of Barcelona and it dates from 1836. Due to the acquisition of the market stalls by immigrants in the last years, there are also stalls with Arab specialties, as well as from South America, Japan, Italy and Greece. You can get to the market by metro line 3, Liceu stop.
