Best time to visit Sagrada & Park Guell?

I will be visiting Barcelona July, I'm trying to figure out best times to visit Sagrada & Park Guell. I've been told Spain is pretty hot in July, is it better to just visit both sites in the morning?

I was thinking of visiting Sagrada in the morning (10 am) and walking over to Park Guell (that way we can see other parts of the city). Are there areas to see on the way to Park Guell from Sagrada or is it better to just use transportation?

Thanks!

It is hot in Barcelona in July but not as hot as Austin Texas (or some other parts of Spain) but the recommended way is to start early with Park Guell, as it is outside, then you can walk to Sagrada Familia, wich is better as you walk downhill instead of uphill, and you can leave time to visit the lovely Vila de Gràcia, which is below PArk Guell and on the way to Sagrada Familia.

Near the Sagrada Familia is the Sant Pau Art Noveau Site.
