We also had the opportunity to visit Parc Guell. It was built roughly between 1900 to 1914, and it was originally envisioned to be a self-contained community for the wealthy. The site is close to an affluent neighborhood called La Salut (The Health), with fresh air (far away from factories that produced smog) and spectacular views of the city. However, there was not enough interest at the time to make it a success. It has since been converted into a municipal garden.
|Isn't it awe-inspiring?|
|From 1906 to 1926, Gaudi lived in one of the two homes that were ever completed in Parc Guell (not designed by Gaudi). It is now the Gaudi House Museum.|
I think what I love about Gaudi's spaces the most is how you can really tell he was so true to his visions. I think his spaces are like those intriguing, mind-bending movies that you want to keep watching over and over to find new clues that you missed out on the first time around.
