Park decorated with the creative hand of the architect Gaudi, which gave the park the surrealistic motives till this days surprises with its beauty and originality.
Park Guell was originally planned as an area for the rich people, Güell bought the territory of 65 hectares, which at that time was far from the centre of Barcelona, and hoped that the influential personages of Spain will build their villas here. The project had been doomed to failure: only two lots were sold, and one of them belonged to Gaudi. Thats why he became the chief architect of the park.
He filled this place with the creative energy that transformed the park into entertainment for those who want to dive into the world of surrealism. Here you can see gingerbread houses, and the Doric temple, and ornate staircases, and the most comfortable bench in the world, and even mosaic sculpture of a lizard, which locals love really much and even call it an enother symbol of the city.
