Park Güell is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on the hill of El Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona. It was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. Park Güell is skillfully designed and composed to bring the peace and calm that one would expect from a park.
The Park Güell was formed with the joining of two areas "Can Muntaner de Dalt" and "Can Coll i Pujol", purchased by Count Güell the year 1899. Gaudí conceived as a religious sense at the same time as organic and urban, and using the 60 meters of gap which has the mountain (the height ranges between 150 and 210 meters respect the sea) to project a path of spiritual elevation, placing in its top a chapel, but it was never built, in place that currently holds the monument to Calvary (or Turó de les tres creus).
The large cross at the Park's high-point offers the most complete view of Barcelona and the bay. It is possible to view the main city in panorama, with the Sagrada Familia and the Montjuïc area visible at a distance.
The park supports a wide variety of wildlife, notably several of the non-native species of parrot found in the Barcelona area. And also can be seen other birds.
This park combine nature and art which make it a place unmatched. And it deserves to be seen.
