Meet the popular Park Güell, which has over 100 years of history, and enjoy the views of the city of Barcelona from the top of the hill where the Park is located.
The origin of this park dates back to the 1900s. When Barcelona was a modern and cosmopolitan metropolis, the engineer Ildefons Cerdà studied in depth the difficulties of the modern city growth as Barcelona was expanding rapidly throughout the second half of the 19th century. Its central area began to take shape as a large bourgeois centre. The Universal Exhibition of 1888 promoted the search for a new artistic language and urban representation.
The main architectural feature of the park is based on the art nouveau, this form of art began to spread from Glasgow to Brussels and then to Barcelona recovering former construction techniques such as the Catalan vault (or timbrel vault) and old craft styles, while at the same time taking an interest in the expressive potential of iron.
