Park Guell Tour Don’t miss the Park Guell: it will really surprise you! You will not find any park like this one in the world! This architectural marvel, created in the middle of nature by Antoni Gaudi, was commissioned by Count Guell, who wanted him to design an elegant estate with family homes. Today it is a public park and it belongs to the city’s heritage. It has been declared UNESCO’s World heritage site and is just another marvel that awaits you on your visit to Barcelona.
When you go to Park Guell, you should enter by the big staircase dominated by the dragon decorated with mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as “trencadis”. This dragon is one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Originally written Park Guell (using the English spelling), the park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, “trencadis”-covered bench. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns, like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudi’s work, like no other, unites nature and architecture.
