Don't miss Park Güell, a place that will leave you ready for more surprises! You will not find a park like this anywhere in the world. Count Güell commissioned this architectural marvel that was created in the middle of nature by Antoni Gaudí. 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.
