Where to start? Gaudi was such an amazing architect, and his park/gardens do not fail to amaze.
There is a free admittance and a pay admittance area, needless to say, we saw this in the free section. People had felt impelled to carve into cactus and we also saw the same vandalism on some wide aloe-type fronds. But only at the entrance, the rest of the park was saved from such defacement.
As we walked into the park, the aroma was almost overpowering. Perhaps it was the direction of the air. Are these gardenias? That is my guess. They are too tropical to live in my home climate, so they are a novelty to me. I sure loved the scent.
The lizard and calla lilies are just above the trickling spring with ferns and flowers, as one walks up a stairway.
Many tourist cards display the infamous, brightly-tiled chameleon. Calla lilies are planted to show in a ring sculpture above him. Below the lizard, a small spring and pond are planted with yellow Dutch iris and calla lilies, along with some ferns.
I have shared some photos of flowers from this amazing park, another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It is really famous for the architecture, which is most unusual and well worth a visit.
