Park Guell is Barcelona’s dedicated Gaudi-park

IMG_3762
A magical park with amazing buildings, sculptures, and tile work designed by Gaudí.

Here you also find Gaudí’s old home, now made into a small museum, open to the public.

Park Güell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell who wanted to create this stylish park for Barcelona’s aristocracy

The park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings.

There is a walkway supported by twisting rock pillars that seem to be growing out of the ground like tree trunks. Although these are rather irregular in shape they do feel strangely natural too.

Gaudí was strongly influenced by natural shapes and used them in his work.

At the top of Güell park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona City. Here you will find multi-coloured tiled mosaic seats as shown in this picture. The vibranPark Güell also has a small house in the park which Gaudí lived in at one stage.
