Visit this beautiful park during your stay with Habitat Apartments in their apartments in Barcelona.

Park Guell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell who wanted to create a stylish park for Barcelona aristocracy.The park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings. You can see from this picture the Gaudi dragon fountain that is at the entrance to Guell park. This dragon is adorned in beautiful coloured tiling and there is something rather hypnotic and magical about it. Gaudi was strongly influenced by natural shapes and used them in his work. At the top of Guell park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona City. Here you will find multi-coloured tiled mosaic seats. The vibrant colours of the tiles are truly breathtaking. Park Guell also has a small house in the park which Gaudi lived in at one stage. The house has now been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudi.
