Park güell

  1. 1. GÜELL PARK Carlos Fernández Merino
  2. 2. GÜELL PARKThe Güell Park is a big garden, with architectural elements. Located at the top of Barcelona, it was designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi. The park was built between 1900 and 1914 and opened as a public park in 1926. The park is one of the greatest architectural works in Southern Europe. The Dragon sculpture was attacked and turned back, but the nose was damaged. Fortunately, it could be easily restored because the damage was minor. DRAGON SCULPTURE BENCH OF GÜELL PARK
  3. 3. HISTORY Eusebi Guell was who gave the park its name. This rich Catalan businessman, was a member of an influential family of the bourgeois city. He planned to construct a residential area near the city that would attract the rich Catalan bourgeoisie. But because of the World War, it couldn’t be finished and the area was converted into a public park in 1922, when the City Hall bought the land from Güell’s heirs. In 1984 UNESCO declared the Park Güell a Word Heritage site.

The stairs lead to the Greek theatre bordered by a bench with wavy lines.  The flights of stairs are separated by small islands with organic decorative elements: the first takes the form of a cave, the second a reptile head projecting out of a medallion with the Catalan flag and the third presents the multicolored figure of a dragon.
