Park Güell

A Barcelona landmark that should not be overlooked, this park is an architectural wonder.

The entrance to Park Güell in Barcelona, Spain

Situated on Carmel Hill in Barcelona, Spain, Park Güell is a public park system that was commissioned by Eusebi Güell. He left the design to none other than famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí. Like many of his architectural creations throughout Barcelona, this urban space shows Gaudí's depth of imagination and experimental nature through geometric shapes and organic style.

Construction took place between 1900 and 1914, and it was originally intended to be used for housing but that plan was not successful. The park opened to the public in 1926. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Today visitors can stroll through the gardens and enjoy a guided tour of the grounds. A few highlights include The Dragon StairwayThe Greek Theatre and The Austria Gardens.
