Parc Güell in Barcelona

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 to him after a short stay in England.

The famous Antoni Gaudí was the main architect. He built the common areas for the neighbors: a main square, a market place, a main entrance, fountains and many decorative elements as well as the caretaker home and administrative hall for this neighborhood.

Gaudi himself lived in the park there for 20 years, nowadays the is 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.

The park is an explosion of color and decorations thanks to the Trencadís, the mosaic of ceramic that characterize the park.

Everything in the Parc is in perfect harmony with nature, it is really a must-see during your visit of Barcelona.
