The park is across from the main entrance to Sagrada Familia. When we were there we saw bottles floating in the pond and it ruined some great photos of the Cathedral.

If you want some pictures of Sagrada Familia, then this is the place to come. The park seems insignificant after you look at it from up the towers, so take a look at it before you enter.

This park is adjacent to Sagrada Familia. Some decent green space, but the small pond / mini-lake is green with algae.

This park is located across the street from the entrance to La Sagrada Familia. The centerpiece is a large pond, that when we were there was stagnant and green. Good views of the Basilica while you await your entry time to the Sagrada.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
