“SKIP THE LINE” GUIDED TOUR PARK GÜELL
Don't miss the Park Güell: it will surprise you! You will not find any park like this one in the world! Antoni Gaudi was commissioned to build this architectural wonder by Count Güell, who wanted him to plan an elegant residential area. Today it is a public park and it belongs to the city heritage. It has been declared UNESCO’s World heritage site and is just another wonder that awaits you on your visit to Barcelona. During the visit we will enter to Park Güell through the big staircase dominated by the dragon, decorated with a mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as “trencadís”. This dragon is one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Originally written Park Güell (using the English spelling), the park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaky bench covered by the “trencadís” mosaic style. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns shaped like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí's work unites nature and architecture like no other does. In Park Güell there is also a small house where Gaudí lived during a period of his life. The house has been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudí.
