Have you ever imagined living in a beautiful dreamy theme park?
You can get a taste of what that would be like if you visit Park Güell in Barcelona.
One of the first things that comes to mind when we think of Gaudi’s work is Park Güell. Park Güell was built from 1900 to 1914 on Carmel Hill in Barcelona, requested by Eusebi Güell who was Gaudí’s patron and the park became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. The park is filled with Gaudi’s genius imagination based on his naturalist outlook, as well as the political and religious beliefs of Gaudi and his patron, Count Güell. Going on a walking tour to find these remarkable and creatively designed works could give you a whole new level of inspiration.
Things to watch
At the main entrance, you can find Gaudi’s multicolored mosaic salamander using broken ceramics pieces which is called Gaudi’s Trencadis technique.
At the main terrace, you can see a long sea serpent bench using Trencadis technique as well. It is splendidly decorated with colorful ceramics and also designed ergonomically efficient while feeling social gathering atmosphere created by its circle shape. The holes in the middle of the bench were made to make rainwater flow down and reuse it.
