Beaches and parks in Barcelona
On hot days in Barcelona you quickly start longing for a means to cool down. This doesn't necessarily have to mean a trip to the beach as the city has a wonderful selection of green and blossoming parks which are ideal for relaxing and recreation.
Sit on a shady park bench with a cold drink and watch the Catalans playing Boule. You cannot miss the wonderful Park Güell, one of the many gloriously colourful works of Antoni Gaudí.
