Description

Park Güell is a park with architectural elements located on the hill of el Carmel in Barcelona, Spain. The park was designed by Antoni Gaudí and built in from 1900 to 1914.

The park was originally supposed to be an important part of a commercial housing site inspired by the garden city movement. The concept was to build housing in an area above the polluting factories below that offered stunning view of the city and surrounding area. There were supposed be 60 luxury houses sold. However, the idea of Count Eusebi Güell never materialized though he did manage to sell one house...to Gaudi who lived there from 1906 to 1926.

Many of the architectural elements of the park underscore Gaudi's strong affinity to natural shapes.

Near the top of the park is a large terrace where visitors have a view of the lower park and of the City of Barcelona.
