Parque Güell

El Parque Güell (en catalán Parc Güell, aunque su nombre original es Park Güell) es un gran jardín con elementos arquitectónicos situado en la parte superior de Barcelona (España), en la vertiente que mira al mar de la montaña Turó del Carmel, no muy lejos del Tibidabo. Fue diseñado por el arquitecto Antonio Gaudí, máximo exponente del modernismo catalán, construido entre los años 1900 y 1914 e inaugurado como parque público en 1926.

El parque tiene una extensión de 17,18 hectáreas (0,1718 kilómetros cuadrados). En el diseño se pone claramente de manifiesto la mano de un arquitecto, y el estilo peculiar de Gaudí resulta evidente en cualquier elemento, por pequeño que sea. Existen formas onduladas, parecidas a los ríos de lava, y paseos cubiertos con columnas que tienen formas de árboles, estalactitas y formas geométricas. Muchas de la superficies están cubiertas con pedazos de cerámica o de vidrio a modo de mosaicos de colores. Por su localización al margen de la urbe y a una altitud elevada, este parque es un remanso de paz que contrasta con el ruido y frenesí de la capital catalana.


Park Güell

The park was originally part of a commercially unsuccessful housing site, the idea of Count Eusebi de Güell, whom the park was named after. It was inspired by the English garden city movement; hence the original English name Park. The site was a rocky hill with little vegetation and few trees, called Muntanya Pelada (Bare Mountain). It already included a large country house called Larrard House or Muntaner de Dalt House, and was next to a neighborhood of upper class houses called La Salud. The intention was to exploit the fresh air (well away from smoky factories) and beautiful views from the site, with sixty triangular lots being provided for luxury houses. Count Eusebi Güell added to the prestige of the development by moving in 1906 to live in Larrard House. In the event only two houses were built, neither designed by Gaudi. One was intended to be a show house, but on being completed in 1904 was put up for sale, and as no buyers came forward. Gaudi, at Güell's suggestion, bought it with his savings and moved in with his family and his father in 1906.
