Geocache Description:

A cache in Barcelona's Parc Güell

Offering some of the most excellent views of the city just metres away from this cache in Barcelona's Parc Güell. The cache is hidden a little off the beaten track and will require a little hiking to get to. At the time of hiding, the 500 mL cache container contained: two sand dollars from British Columbia, Canada, bike stickers, bubbles, plastic ants, log book and pencil.

You can either approach the cache through the front entrance of the park and visit the gecko located at 41 24.819 N x 002 9.172 E and proceed from there. Alternatively a suggestion is to take the metro to Vallarca and take the escalators up the hill to the back entrance and enjoy the view and rabbit ears cacti. The route is less touristy and easier too!

A note to geocachers: Parc Güell is not a very clean park, so don't be surprised to find things in the park that you shouldn't touch. If this concerns you then I would suggest to look at the spoiler pictures below so you'll know what to uncover to access the cache.
