Barcelona modernism guide - Parc Güell Barcelona


The crawling sea serpent - Parc Guell
The crawling sea serpent

these houses were used by servants and guards that worked for people visiting the park



Parc Güell is Gaudi's greatest creation in Barcelona and it was the first job assigned to him by his patron Count Eusebi Güell.

Parc Güell stretches over more than 3 hectares and combines urban planning, architecture and art. It is located outside of the Eixample and the buildings previously described in this guide, but the park with its surprises and the fantastic view over the city is a sight that has to be seen.

There are two houses at the entrance, built into the stone entrance wall. Originally, these houses were used by servants and the park guards. From the entrance you have a fantastic view of the monumental staircase, with the figure of a salamander decorated in ceramics.

Behind the stairs is the forest of Pelare and the incredible Plaça Del Park Güell, surrounded by a long bench in the form of a sea serpent. The bench is decorated with ceramics, plates and glass bottles that form a collage of stunning colors.
