The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, in #Barcelona , #Spain . The Park is named after Eusebi Güell, a rich entrepreneur and count that had a great passion for Gaudí’s work and who became his patron. The park was originally conceived as part of a luxury residential complex, but over the years this idea was dropped and in its place Güell and Gaudí designed a park that could be the setting for a fairy tale.
Park Güell was opened to the public in 1926 and since then has become one of Barcelona’s main tourist attractions. In 1984, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
This green space measures 17 hectares and includes rounded forms, columns that look like tree trunks, animal figures and geometric shapes. Most of the architectonic elements are decorated with mosaics made from colorful ceramic pieces. The architect, inspired by nature, decorated the park with exquisite structures that imitate natural forms where neither rigidity nor classicism exists. All the element’s sinuous and colorful forms are influenced by symbolism, both political and religious. 📸: @eljay.smith, @delafuentacam, @lifeofsabin#architectanddesign
