Parc Guell is a public park with a difference - it’s home to some unique works by the famed Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi. Once a housing site, Gaudi was encouraged by his patron, Count Eusebi Guell, to transform the area in which both men were then living. The result is a unique city park filled with Gaudi’s colourful, surprising architecture. There are outlandish pinnacled roofs on the buildings at the main gates, a elabourate central terrace shaped like a sea serphent, bright mosaics and colourful fountains. Coverted by photographers and regularly cropping up as a unique backdrop in tv shows and films, the park is definitely an interesting place to spend a lazy afternoon. It’s free to enter, except for the museum in La Torre Rosa, Gaudi’s former home.
