Parc Güell

DPP_1748.1_filtered

Parc Güell is a public park/ garden in Barcelona noted for its Art Nouveau architecture. Designed by Gaudí for Count Güell, it was originally commissioned to be a housing development. Construction was never completed and it was eventually converted into a public garden in 1922.

I found Parc Güell to possess a certain fairy-tale quality, even more so than the other Gaudí UNESCO sites. Probably due its gingerbread-like buildings, bright mosaics and overall whimsical flamboyance.

    • We spent an inordinate amount of time here… Close to three hours IIRC. So much too see despite its size. The only negative is its popularity. The crowds made it tough for photos, which was what had me aiming at the skies half the time. Hence this shot 🙂

  1. I love how blue the sky is and the clouds, too. The shape of the building makes it look like the shot is a water reflection–very cool.
