Park Guell is located in Gracia district of Barcelona, Spain.  The park was commissioned by Count Eusebi Guell and designed by the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi in the years 1900 – 1914.  It is considered to be one of the largest architectural works in Europe.

All around the park, it has stunning mosaic and tile artworks.  It also has a beautiful view of Barcelona city at the top terrace.

This park really impressed me, I couldn’t stop taking photos of every corner because of the different artistic works around.  My favorite part of the park were the mosaic salamander and the mosaic seats at the terrace.  I highly recommend this park for those who enjoy beautiful art works and parks.

Tip: Be prepare for a long hike up the hill to visit this park.  If not, there are taxis and bus that you can take to get to the park.
