Gaudi was originally commissioned to build a sixty domiciles for Eusebio Guell, the greatest patron of him. But at last it was only two houses accomplished. There are many small sinuous pathway and unique mosaic sculptures spread in the park. The lizard becomes to be the symbol of Parc Guell. The flat roof was built as a dance square for burgraves... grab a great view of Park Guell and Barcelona city from the curving mosaic bench is the best way to relax.

No exception of Sagrada Familia... you will find many inspiration from the nature were presented in this Gaudi's work. The house look like made of gingerbread.. beautiful coloredl mosaic makes the whole place a wonderland.
