Spain Barcelona Güell

The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements, located in Barcelona, Spain.

The park was built between 1900 and 1914 and officially opened as a public park in 1926. With urbanization in mind, Eusebi Güell, 1st Count of Güell (1846–1918) assigned the design of the park to the Spanish architect and the face of Catalan modernism, Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926). One of the symbols of the park and the city of Barcelona is the famous multicoloured dragon, covered in colourful tile fragments.



In 1984, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site under "Works of Antoni Gaudí".

  2. We visited Barcelona a few years back but it was a quick, short trip. Due to scarcity of time we did not visit Park Eusebi Güell. It is interesting to learn about the association between the industrialist (Eusebi Güell) and the architect (Gaudí). Will include this on our next visit to Barcelona.
