The project of architect Antonio Gaudi was originally conceived as a residential area with city views. But the idea failed for various reasons, and as a result, Park Güell was sold to the city administration of Barcelona, which turned the space into a public zone. For all the time only two people lived here: lawyer MartíTrias i Domènech and Gaudi himself. Also, a third house was built here, which was supposed to be a prototype of accommodation, but no one settled there.
But now Park Güell is one of the main attractions of Barcelona, part of the UNESCO World Heritage and a striking example of Gaudi architecture. The central area of the Park Guel is paid, to get to the park for free use the right or left entrance. You still will be able to take photos of gingerbread houses and enjoy the view of Barcelona from the above. Save Park Güell in MAPS.ME
