Park Güell Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Park Güell

A most unusual fairy tale park built between 1900 and 1914, listed as UNESCO World Heritage site, where animal-like sculptures, narrow ramps, and staircases are the order of the day. According to Gaudi's, this project was meant to be a garden-city, but like the Sagrada Familia, it remains unfinished. Here you can admire the two pavilions at the entrance that remind you of Hansel and Gretel's gingerbread house. A majestic front entrance topped with a fabulous dragon (some modestly refer to it as a lizard or a salamander) leads to a spacious room where the market was supposed to be. The mosaic ceiling, sustained by 86 Doric columns, holds up a large terrace with a panoramic view and a beautiful watchtower surrounded by a circular bench covered in multi-coloured mosaics where crowds come to admire the view. Don't forget to admire the panorama over the city and the sea from the summit of the hill. It is home to the Casa-Museu, where the architect lived for 20 years until his death in 1926. This pretty pastel pink house has preserved the same structure as when Gaudi lived there. The museum encloses the works and personal memories of the architect: furniture, projects, and drawings by Gaudi and his collaborators. It also gives you the occasion for a nice walk that will delight the young and the old.
