Parc Guell
Category: Points of Interest



Parc Guell is a park with architectural elements in Barcelona, Spain. It is located in the northern part of town, on a hill of El Carmel in the Gràcia district. The park was designed by the Catalan modernist architect Antoni Gaudí and built between 1900 and 1914. The UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of "Antoni Gaudí's works."

Güell family was a wealthy family who lived in the early 1900s and their vision was to build a small exclusive village in Park Güell. Gaudí was involved in the work from 1900 to 1904, but it was never the residential area that vision was. Due to financial difficulties, the project was stopped and only a few houses were built. One of them is Gaudí's own, and he lived there for several years. Today the park is open for free use of the city's residents, and is one of Barcelona's main tourist attractions.

At the main entrance of the park is perhaps the biggest attraction, fountain Font del Drac, with the famous porselensøgla. Behind the stairs by the fountain located Sala de les Cent Column, a large room supported by columns, which originally was to be a marketplace.
