Park Güell is the most colorful park in Barcelona and another of the famous designs of architect Antoni Gaudí.

 

The history of Park Guell

More than a hundred years ago, in the year 1900, the architect Antoni Gaudí was commissioned by Eusebi Güell to design a luxury residential park. And as with all his designs where nature was his main source of inspiration, it was the same with the design of Park Güell. And perhaps this is Antoni Gaudí's design where the connection with nature is most evident. For example, the hiking trails are harmoniously integrated into the landscape and the undulating mosaics feel a beautiful unity with the environment.


The highlights of Park Güell

There is a lot to see in Park Güell. The symbol of Park Güell, which you see in countless photos, is of course the mosaic salamander that stands in the middle of the grand staircase. Another major highlight is the long, undulating mosaic bench from which you have a nice view over the house in Park Güell with a view over Barcelona in the background. These mosaic salamander consist of countless mosaic pieces that together form a colorful whole. And of course there are also the colonnade and the impressive gate as highlights of Park Güell. But actually every corner of Park Güell is worth a visit. It is definitely the most surprising park you will ever see.

 

The house of Antoni Gaudí

One of the most special sights in Park Güell is arguably the home of Antoni Gaudí, Casa Museu Gaudí. In this house he spent the last twenty years of his life. Of course, this house is an attraction in itself, because it is also a design by Antoni Gaudí, but it also teaches you more about the working method of Antoni Gaudí.

Visit Park Guell

Actually, every corner of Park Güell is worth a visit. It is definitely the most surprising park you will ever see. From the colorful tiles to Greek-style columns and cave-like walls, everything in Park Güell is different from other parks.
