About the book

Located on a hillside in the north part of Barcelona, Park Güell is one of the most admired works of architect Antoni Gaudí, who demonstrated his artistic and boundless imagination creating a magical space packed with allegorical elements that have been interpreted in many different ways.

Promoted by the influential Barcelonan businessman Eusebi Güell, the park was originally devised as an exclusive garden city aimed at well-to-do high society families who wanted to get away from the busy city life and be closer to nature. Güell gave Gaudí free rein to design the site, in such a way that the architect was able to experiment with new construction techniques and incorporate references to Classical mythology, the history of Catalonia and the Christian religion.

This handy-sized book covers the essential aspects of Park Güell, from the origins of the project to Gaudí's main sources of inspiration. By means of its pages, the reader can go around the different parts of this unique work, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1984.
