Park Güell Barcelona

Barcelona's iconic Park Güell is one of the most impressive public parks in the world, a Gaudi masterpiece and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Gaudi planned the construction of the park from 1900 to 1914 for Eusebi Güell for a residential zone intended for sixty single- family residences. The project, however, was unsuccessful and the park became city property in 1923.

The garden complex houses a series of buildings, including Gaudí’s house. Most buildings have the “trencadis” (surfaces covered with irregular ceramic pieces) that is characteristic of Gaudí's work. The colonnaded hall and the terrace with serpentine shapes are the Park's most well known features.
