Parc guell

After being here for two months I FINALLY made it to Parc Güell, the famous architectural park located on top of the hill “El Carmel” designed by Antoni Gaudi. At the top of Güell park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and entire city of Barcelona. Here you will find multicolored tiled mosaic seats (like in the picture of Allison and I below). The vibrant colors of the tiles combined with the backdrop of the city are truly breathtaking. Lot’s of times people joking call this the “Doctor Seuss Park” It truly does look like a scene from one of his books.

Güell also has one house on its grounds which just so happened to have housed Gaudi and his father from 1906 to the time of his death in 1926. This house has now been turned into a museum.
