When it was constructed between 1900 and 1914 by the most famous contemporary architect Antoni Gaudí, the parc was on the northern ends of Barcelona.
Nowadays, due to the expansion of the city it is sitting like an island in the city and thanks to its elevation Parc Güell is offering great views up to the Mediterranean Sea.
Entering the parc you will pass the colourful pavillon with its naturally round forms and the typically tiled and shaped roof. Following the stairs you will reach the multicolored mosaic dragon fountain, which is one of the main icons of the Parc Guell.
Just above your head you can see the large main terrace, which extents from the mountain almost to the entrance.
A couple of steps more and you will enter the wide terrace of Parc Güell. The serpentine-shaped benches invite for a rest to enjoy the scenery and the great views over Barcelona’s quarters of Gracia and Eixample up to the sea and the mountain of Montjuic in the background.
