Admission tickets for Park Güell, one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, typically sell out quickly; however, by buying tickets online in advance, you can guarantee entry, avoid the long lines, and save time on the day. Instead of queueing in the heat, explore Park Güell—including the Dragon Staircase, Hypostyle Room, and more—at your own pace.

Barcelona’s Arc de Triumph was built by Josep Casanova as a welcome entrance to the 1888 World Expo, Spain’s first international exposition. Although the expo was attended by more than 400,000 people, it took 10 years for Barcelona to recover financially. The history is interesting and the views around, but in itself, I would rather spend my time in the historic districts.

We are dropped off close to the Arc by our taxi and then walked the corridor down to the park. The arc had impressive artwork on it. we were glad we got to see it.
