In the park Güell you can sit on the most comfortable bench, designed by Gaudi.
How to sit on the most comfortable bench in the world in Barcelona
On the terrace of the Doric temple "Hall of hundred columns" is located the ergonomic bench created by Gaudi and his student with a very comfortable seating. It also serves as a parapet and a bench.

If you look closely, the bench is divided in the sections repeating the form of the human body. To achieve this effect, Gaudi asked the builder to sit on the soft clay and now the bench has an imprint of his but, so it is very comfortable to sit on this bench :)

How to do?

1. Go to the terrace of the Doric temple "Hall of a hundred columns" in the park of Güell.
2. Walk past a huge, ornate bench decorated with broken glass and construction waste is almost impossible.
3. Sit down in a comfortable seat. Its a real pleasure to sit on it, isn't it? - Gaudis job :)
