Here is another Gaudi’s gift to Barcelona! It is just completely green rehersal of Gaudi’s art which is beyond mind.
Park Güell was commisioned to Gaudi by Güell family to have built as an indicator of nobility. Mr. Güell was an important person in Gaudi’s life also. Mr. Güell believed in Gaudi’s dreams and became his financier for his other works. Even it is told that Mr. Güell’s death had taken Gaudi into a deeply sorrow.
Park Güell’s construction finished in 1914. Then the government got its administration and the park opened to the public in 1923.
This is a very green, chirping park. Of course, the most important things in the park are two famous extraordinary buildings which have creamy looking roofs. One of them is Hensel and Gretel’s home and the other one is evil witch’s 🙂
They are incredibly beautiful, very outstanding, very brave. You will understand Gaudi better after visiting this park.
And here is Gaudi’s house at Park Güell
The roof looks like a cream.. 🙂
Did we enter inside of these buildings? No! Because it was told it didn’t worth. Outside view is more important. We intended to go in for a while but we gave up when we saw very long queue. We didn’t want to loose time. The officer said it would take almost 3 hours.. We would wait if it is worth but my nephew Goknur living in Barcelona said no need and we forgot..
How to get to Park Güell?
Park Güell is a little bit outside the city. The best way to go to Park Güell is subway.. You can use the subway and get off at Lesseps station. Then follow the signs to Park Güell. You have to walk up to 15 minutes. After you will face a bit of a steep hill and one more. Do not worry, there is an esclator for the last hill 🙂
Park Güell Tickets
I recommend you to buy your ticket online here.. We didn’t get any ticket. Because we didn’t want to go inside..
We’ll go home, get some rest and change our clothes. We have a reservation at Seven Portes for my birthday dinner..
