Gaudi started to work on the park in 1901 at the order of the Catalan businessman Eusebi Güell. It had been built for more than 10 years.
Pay attention to the famous bench that circles the main terrace. You may see it in the most famous photos of Barcelona: blue-orange mosaic bench, gingerbread roofs of the central houses behind it, and a panorama of Barcelona on the horizon. Mosaic enthusiasts will also adore the salamander that decorates one of the stairs leading to the terrace.
Take a look at the amazing houses built in the park. They stand at the central entrance and attract attention with their very unusual shapes, outlandish roofs, and spires. Their style reminds of traditional Danish or Swedish architecture and looks like it was made from gingerbread dough and decorated with colored glaze.
Another important spot is The Hall of a Hundred Columns, which has only 86 columns, but it is enough to impress you.
