Park Guell, Art and Architecture in the Countryside

Park Guell can not be missed on your route in Barcelona! This is another famous work of Antonio Gaudí, which was built between 1900 and 1904 commissioned by Eusebi Güell.

The original idea was that the park was supposed to be a development with 60 homes in a huge garden. But only two parcels were sold because the Park Güell was far from the center of Barcelona. In 1918 the Barcelona City Council bought the park and in1922 it was opened to the public.

Gaudí wanted to integrate the work as much as possible in nature. You can only observe with your own eyes how well he has succeeded.

To build the park they planted mixed vegetation. Today it is difficult to understand that before the construction of the park, there was little vegetation in this area.

The best-known symbol of the Park Güell is the dragon. Over time the dragon not only has become the symbol of the Park Güell but also of the city Barcelona.

In the park you can also find La Casa-Gaudí Museum, which was Antonio Gaudí's home between 1906 and 1925.
