Park Güell of Barcelona
Park Guell is a large garden with modernist architectural elements, located in the top of Barcelona, on the slopes of the mountains of the Carmel Hill facing the sea. Conceived as urbanization, was designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí, the greatest Catalan exponent of modernism, commissioned by the Count Eusebi Guell. Built between 1900 and 1914, it was inaugurated as a public park in 1922.
Gaudí conceived the park in a religious sense that incorporated organic elements (inspired by nature) and the city. He took advantage of a gap of 60 meters in the mountain (whose height ranges from 150 to 210 meters) to project a “path of spiritual elevation,” placing a chapel at the top. This was not finally built and now the monument at Calvary occupies its place (or Hill of the Three Crosses).
In the Park Güell The Gaudí House Museum (Casa-Museo Guaudí, in Catalan) can be visited. It was the house where the architect lived from 1906 to 1925. You can buy a combined ticket to visit the Casa-Museu Gaudi+ Sagrada Familia.
