Barcelona Day Four…

Parc Guéll

Guéll, one of Gaudi’s benefactors, supported Gaudi in the development of a high level housing development where they hoped the up and coming Barcelonians would buy land and have them build homes. It didn’t “develop” as planned, and so it was eventually turned into an outdoor park for the local residents. One home already constructed became an elementary school and another serves as the park administration. A colorful dragon greets you as you enter.  Here are some pictures.
