GAUDIPark Guell

Antoni Gaudí is considered the most important figure of Catalan Modernism.
With an incredible imagination, but based in a deep study of nature, his architecture becomes part of Barcelona┤s image.
More of his works may be found in other areas of  Catalunya, Mallorca, Comillas, Astorga and Leˇn.

Barcelona Sagrada Familia

BASILICA OF SAGRADA FAMILIA

This magnificent religious temple, GaudÝ┤s major creation, is under construction since 1882 and its silhouette of eight majestic towers becomes characteristic.

It is worthwhile to stop and appreciate the artwork of the Nativity Fašade and the enormous dramatic power of the Passion Fašade.
The church, once concluded will offer three monumental fašades dedicated to the birth, passion and glory of Christ, together with a huge central tower. In Novenber 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated Sagrada Familia as Basilica.

The whole construction is so monumental that it is almost impossible to describe.

 Barcelona Park Guell

PARK GUELL

The original project consisted in the construction of a residential area of private houses surrounded by a natural environment. This dream and unfinished park represents the whole creative genius of Gaudi, whose objective was to integrate an architectural space totally in harmony with nature.

Park GuellBetween 1900 and 1914 the entrance pavilions, the covered columned square with a terrace over it forming a great open court, communication paths and only two houses, one of them dedicated to a museum were built, before the project was abandoned and recovered later as a public park.

Two beautiful pavilions decorated with tile mosaics form the entrance to the park, together with a spectacular gate, all presenting an enchanted picture.

A central stairway leads to a giant dragon decorated with polychrome mosaic which has become one of the city symbols. Guell Park

The stair continues to a covered hall named the hundred Columns (86 in fact) sustaining a terrace delimited by an endless bench decorated with a collage of coloured tiles and from where a beautiful panoramic of the city can be seen.

One of the two houses is dedicated to museum

Mila House Barcelona
MILA HOUSE “La Pedrera”

Popularly known as The Quarry and located in the Passeig de GrÓcia, a beautiful and elegant avenue, it is considered one of the most original buildings in the city.

Built between 1905 and 1910, its design is inspired by nature with an undulant fašade and original decorated balconies.

It is interesting to visit the upper floor, decorated like a noble apartment of GaudÝ┤s time, a hundred years ago.

A visual exhibition with scale models of different GaudÝ works can be visited. La Pedrera Barcelona

The terrace is spectacular with original chimneys decorated as imaginative sculptures.

Not far from La Pedrera, the Passeig of GrÓcia offers other prominent buildings.
