The original project of the famous Park Guell was not to build a park but a neighborhood for the wealthy people of Barcelona.
The Count Eusebi Güell wanted to build a place similar to a garden city, an idea that came to him after a short stay in England.
The famous Antoni Gaudí was the main architect of the park. By looking carefully, you can still recognize the various elements of the initial project: the main square, the market place, the entrance, the various fountains and decorative elements as well as the caretaker home and the administrative hall of the neighborhood.
The park is an explosion of color and decorations thanks to the Trencadís, the mosaic of ceramic that characterize the park. Everything was created to be in perfect harmony with nature.
Gaudi himself lived in the park there for 20 years, nowadays the house became the Gaudi House Museum and displays a lot of personal items (furniture, drawings, etc.) of the artist that lived there until his death in 1926.
