PARK GÜELL IN BARCELONA

Antonio Guadi, a famous Spanish architect, designed Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain. He directed construction of it from 1900-1914, and it became public property in 1923.

The centerpiece of this attraction is the covered market, a majestic forest of rounded forms, columns that look like tree trunks, animal figures and geometric shapes. Most of the architectural elements are decorated with mosaics made from colorful ceramic pieces.

The expansive terrace has a spectacular view of the city and below sits a reservoir for the park’s fountains. More information is here.
