Guell Park, for example, and the building inside it, especially from inside, will look for the kids like some kind of Allis in wonderland version. The many colorful streets events, especially La Rambla boulevards in which there is a reach animals market, with especially parrots and other birds, street painters, jugglers, clowns on crutches, human statues, that for sure will fascinate them. Most of the attractions for kids concentrated in the area of Montjuic, Tibidabo, and Port Vell.
