Park Güell is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on the hill of el Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí". Park Guell also has a small house in the park which Gaudi lived in at one stage. The house has now been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudi.
Park Güell is skillfully designed and composed to bring the peace and calm that one would expect from a park. The buildings flanking the entrance, though very original and remarkable with fantastically shaped roofs with unusual pinnacles, fit in well with the use of the park as pleasure gardens and seem relatively inconspicuous in the landscape when one considers the flamboyance of other buildings designed by Gaudí.
The focal point of the park is the main terrace, surrounded by a long bench in the form of a sea serpent. To design the curvature of the bench surface Gaudí used the shape of buttocks left by a naked workman sitting in wet clay.

  2. 2. Parcul Güell 3 În anul 1890 marele mecena contele Eusebi Güell (1846-1918) i-a încredinţat lui Antonio Gaud í lucrarea privind amenajarea unui parc de 20 de hectare cu 60 de locuinţe Gaud í a lucrat din 1910 până în 1914 iar parcul a fost deschis în anul 1922 The park was originally part of a commercially unsuccessful housing site, the idea of Count Eusebi Güell (1846-1918) , whom the park was named after. It was inspired by the English garden city movement; It was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí".
  3. 3. Piaţa este formată dintr-o gigantică colonadă (84 de coloane de şase metri) care susţine „ Marea Piaţă Rotundă” înconjurată de un balcon colorat, cea mai lungă bancă din lume (154m), realizată de Josep Jujol, strălucitul elev al lui Gaud í A grand stairway divided by a mythological dragon or lizard (which also serves as an overflow for the cistern) leads to the entrance of the "Doric Temple" or "Hypostyle Hall." The columns are hollow and serve as storm drain pipes. To maintain a feeling of space, Gaudí left out some of the columns. The huge public square in the center of the Parque Güell is surrounded by a continuous, undulating wall and bench cove studded with mosaics. This structure sits atop the Doric temple and offers a bird's-eye view of Barcelona.
