A Must See Masterpiece
The city of Barcelona is home to many beautiful and historical landmarks, museums, and parks that offer as much for your mind as they do for your eyes. And though there are multiple architects, designers and originators associated with these landmarks, one name stands out among them. Antoni Gaudi, a renowned architect who lived between 1852 and 1926, is responsible for some of the most iconic locations in the city and his works are so well loved that seven of them have been declared World Heritage Sites. You can explore one of the largest and most breathtaking of these when you book a stay at the hotels near Park Guell in Barcelona.
Originally intended to be a housing development for the well-to-do, the park only saw the construction of two buildings, one of which Gaudi himself moved into at the end of his life. Both buildings are now sites of museums, one for Gaudi and one for the history of the city. The buildings flank the entrance to this incredible location. In the park, Gaudi’s influences can be seen everywhere, but nowhere more than the main terrace.
A bench in the form of a sea serpent surrounds the area and invites socializing and relaxation. Even the roads around the park were designed with a love of nature, mythology and religion in mind. It is supported by columns designed to look like trees and is laid out to work with the land, not against it. From the high point of the park, under a large cross, you can look out over the city and see another of Gaudi’s works, the Sagrada Familia. Whether you are in the city just for the park or not, make you reservation at the hotels near Park Guell in Barcelona and make time to find a little peace and a lot of beauty.
