This is another icon of the city of Barcelona, created by its beloved architect Gaudí. This is a perfect example of the “Trencadís” technique in modernist mosaics created with ceramic fragments. Columns, benches, ceilings and the famous lizard are covered with small pieces of coloured ceramic, inspired by natural elementsfrom around the world. It was commissioned by the aristocrat Eusebi Güell, and designed to be a garden city, but was never used as such. It was going to have family homes and spaces for public use, including a large covered square - which would be the market - an open-air theatre, a chapel, a pavilion for the concierge and other shared services. Finally, it was decided to use it as apublic park and its doors were opened to the city in 1926. UNESCO listed it as a World Heritage Site in 1984.

With kids: It is an enormous park to visit as a family, where kids can unleash their imagination with the shapes and colours they find there. A fountain in the shape of a big lizard in ceramics of a thousand colours dominates the entrance of the park, one of the icons of the city. The area is fully accessible and has children’s play areas, a dog walking area and sitting areas.
Tips: The park is perched on the Carmel hill, so getting there up the stairs can be a bit tiring. A good idea is to go up the escalators from Pasaje de Sant Josep de la Muntanya, or take the bus (L24, L32, L96 and H6).
