Ending at Plaça Joan Güell

Ending at Plaça Joan Güell

This doesn't show too much of the architecture, but we had lunch under one of those white umbrellas in this pleasant square, named after industrialist Eusebi Güell's father. The statue, though, is interestingly enough of the son, who established this industrial estate.

I would like to have spent more time in this very attractive town, but we had to get back to Barcelona to visit Parc Güell, which after the lack of any kind of crowds here, was a real shock to the system as it was overrun with tourists. Thanks for all the interest shown in this gallery! Truly, the town and the church were hidden gems, and I'd recommend a visit if you happen to go to Barcelona.
