Originally envisioned as a gated community for aristocrats, Count Güell's housing project was a flop (only two houses were ever built). However, the decision to hire Catalonia's favorite architect was a brilliant one - it's now one of Barcelona's most popular attractions.
As usual, Gaudí took his commission and went wild; Park Güell is an entire park full of Gaudí’s fanciful imagination. From the forest of languid stone columns, to the famous Serpent Bench which winds along the perimeter, this Modernist masterpiece is basically a Gaudí theme park.
