Parc Güell is a nice place to take beautiful souvenir pictures, with a mix of colorful ceramics, Gaudi architecture, tropicals plants and a panoramic view on Barcelona.
If you want to have a walk or stay the afternoon in the sun go to Ciutadella Park, you can stay next to the lake, rent a barque or wait till the evening for some regular animations.
Besides the magnificent palace housing the MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya) the magic fountain illuminated lights at night, the gardens of Montjuïc are very and pretty full of little corners where you can stroll and relax. An advice, enter the stairs to the bottom of Calle Lleida and lose yourself in small ways you will find unexpected and beautiful scenes.
