Park Güell is one of the masterpieces of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, a place that will surprise you again and again! Today, it is a public park and it belongs to the city's artistic heritage. It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and is just another marvel that awaits you on your visit to Barcelona.
When you visit Park Güell, you should enter by 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. The park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, trencadís-covered bench. The roof is supported by 86 Doric columns, like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí's work, like no other, unites nature and architecture.
