Lush greenery, walls of swirling patchwork mosaics, and playful pops of architecture; welcome to Park Güell. Crafted in the early 20th century, these garden grounds are where world-famous architect, Antoni Gaudi’s imagination ran wild. The result of a commercial project gone wrong, Gaudi’s works may not have materialised into a luxe miniature city as was first intended, but this vibrant, open-air arena remains a gift to Barcelona from Spain’s most revered creative. Park Güell today spans three kilometres, with Gaudi’s trademark dose of outlandish, quirky designs in full throttle throughout. From columns imitating palm trees to a mosaic lizard dragon, this park represents the very best of Gaudi architecture. A mental playground where art breathes new life into nature, Park Güell is a living and breathing Gaudi tribute, enjoyed every day by locals and tourists alike.
