Gaudi's patron, Eusebi Güell, planned a suburban "city." His property was high above Barcelona, northwest and some distance from the city. More than 60 housing plots were allocated although only two homes were built on the property. The project was radical for its time and, as a real estate project, was a failure. The Barcelona City Council bought the property in 1922 and in the following year converted it to a municipal park.

Gaudí avoided levelling the grounds so that the Parc Güell has a network of twisting roads which follow the contours of the land.

 

The lowest point is the entrance, from which a double staircase leads to the hypostyle chamber, the ceiling of which serves as the floor of the huge public square.
 Outlying areas have imaginative viaducts and colonnades, which in their design evoke natural forms.

Paying to visit a park
Susana (9 Jun 2014 - 09:45)
The reason they have introduced a fee is because of the sheer number of people coming which is threatening to destroy the park. A lot of people who visit have no respect for its importance and climb all over parts that need protecting if they are to last for the next generations.

    First time I hear that you should pay to visit a park. Is the city council going insane?
    Beside that the place is absolutly awesome.. A must see in Barcelona.
