Park Güell

Designed as a great English-style garden-city, Gaudí brought the relationship between nature and architecture to its best exponent: paths, porches and viaducts are fully integrated in the nature. The jewels of the park, however, are the staircase, with its colorful dragon, and the hypostyle room to which it gives access. Its 86 columns support the large upper square, decorated with a beautiful bench made of trencadís.

Park Güell is located on the hill of El Carmel, in the district of Gracia, and is one of the most visited places in the city of Barcelona.

The park was designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudí and built between 1900 and 1914. The original project was commissioned by Eusebi Güell, a wealthy Catalan businessman, who wanted to build a luxury residential community on the site. However, the project was unsuccessful and the park was donated to the city in 1923.

Park Güell is known for its impressive architectural structures as well as its gardens and landscaping. Visitors can walk along the paths that wind through the park, admire Gaudí's works and enjoy panoramic views of Barcelona from the top of the hill.

One of Gaudí's most famous works in the park is the Terrace of Health, which features a series of leaning columns and colourful mosaics. The Plaza de la Naturaleza is another popular attraction, with its famous dragon sculpture that has become an iconic symbol of the park.

Another notable landmark is the Gaudí House-Museum, which is the house where the architect lived for several years and which now houses an exhibition of his works and life.

The park's gardens are also one of the main attractions. With exotic plants and leafy trees, visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the park's paths and discover hidden corners.

Despite being a popular spot for tourists, Park Güell is an oasis of tranquillity in the middle of the bustling city of Barcelona. It will often get crowded, but finding a quiet corner to sit and enjoy the panoramic views is always possible.

It is important to note that to access the monumental area of the park you will need to buy a ticket, although some of the trails can be accessed free of charge. In addition, it is advisable to visit the park early in the morning or in the late afternoon to avoid the crowds.
