Park Guell

We visited Park Güell today. This park was designed by Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914.

Originally it was going to be a housing site, but when that did not work out it was turned into a municipal park.

It’s most famous for the mosaic tile work, specifically the pieces in the entry to the park. I especially like the multicolored mosaic dragon fountain.

It’s a very cool space. You can see Gaudi’s hand in even the littlest details

It’s a real joy to walk around. Even with the crowds in the main area you can still find some quiet spots where you feel quite isolated and calm.

I have some more pics in the gallery.
