Antoni Gaudí is the man behind the bizarre yet ingenious Park Güell, the most famous park in Barcelona. Commissioned by businessman Eusebi Güell, the architect started building a dream village on the edge of the city that was supposed to resemble a fairy-tale forest. Even though the village was never completed, as only 2 of the 60 planned houses were built, Park Güell is still truly unique.
Park Güell is best described as a fantastical exuberance. Bright colours, unusual architectural shapes and natural curves: Gaudí certainly gave his imagination free rein. The park was built between 1900 and 1914 and is located on El Carmel Hill in the Gràcia neighbourhood – one can clearly see how the artist tried to integrate his creation into the landscape.
