Full description
Discover one of Antoni Gaudí’s most enduring creations on this tour of Park Güell. Take a walk through a century of art. Start at Carmel Hill and enter the public park that Gaudí built over a century ago. See the fantastic mosaic tiles of the salamander statue (“El Drac”) at the park entrance as an example of Gaudí’s typical style. Go back to the origins of the park date in 1900, when Barcelona was becoming a cosmopolitan metropolis. Hear about the engineer Ildefons Cerdà, who studied the problems faced by a growing city in depth, and addressed the needs of Barcelona as it expanded rapidly throughout the 2nd half of the century. Let your guide show you how the park's main architectural features are based on the Art Nouveau, an art movement that began in Glasgow and spread across Europe to Brussels and on to Barcelona. Learn about how old construction techniques, such as the Catalan or “timbrel” vault, fed the vision of Barcelona’s Modernisme movement. Climb up the wooded hill and find more mosaics, sinuous benches, twisted stonework, and the Sala Hipóstila (Hall of the Hundred Columns). Enjoy breathtaking panoramas of the city below.
