Barcelona pictures


Park Güell
Located at the top of the city of Barcelona, Park Güell occupies 20 hectares, being the larger work of Antonio Gaudi, a Catalan major architect , and one of the greatest exponents of modernism.
Throughout the park you can find the Gaudi style . You can see colorful mosaics or columns with amazing shapes, all in perfect agreement with the gardens that surround the entire park.
From the highest part you can have a panoramic view of the city of Barcelona.
In 1984, UNESCO named the Park Güell as an artistic monument of international protection.

La Sagrada Familía
The Expiatory Temple of the Holy Family is designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
The project was begun in 1882 and assumed by Gaudí in 1883, when he was 31 years old, giving him his last 40 years, the last fifteen uniquely.
Construction was suspended in 1936 due to the Spanish Civil War and is not expected for completion before 2026, the centenary of the death of Gaudí.
