Dieses architektonische Wunderwerk wurde von Antoni Gaudí inmitten der Natur geschaffen und von Graf Güell in Auftrag gegeben. Dieser wollte in ihm ein elegantes Anwesen mit Einfamilienhäusern errichten. Heute ist es ein öffentlicher Park und gehört zum Erbe der Stadt.
Es wurde zum UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe erklärt. Wenn Sie zum Park Güell gehen, sollten Sie die große Treppe betreten, die von einem mit Keramikmosaik verzierten Drachen dominiert wird, dem katalanischen Stil, der als "Trencadís" bekannt ist. Dieser Drache ist eines der charakteristischsten Bilder Barcelonas. Ursprünglich ist der Park um einen großen zentralen Platz herum angeordnet, der von schlanken Bänken begrenzt wird. Unterhalb des Platzes wird das Dach von 86 dorischen Säulen wie Bäumen mit dazwischen liegenden Pfaden und Viadukten auf geneigten Säulen gestützt: Gaudís Arbeit vereint wie keine andere Natur und Architektur.
Barcelona - die Hauptstadt der Moderne, der Ort, an dem der berühmte Architekt Antoni Gaudí gearbeitet und gelebt hat. Einer der größten Erfinder seiner Zeit, hat Barcelona zahlreiche Schätze hinterlassen. Die Sagrada Familia ist eines der meistbesuchten Gebäude der Welt.
Hier lohnt sich definitiv ein Blick ins Innere: Antoni Gaudí entwarf einen lateinischen Kreuzplan mit fünf Gängen, der reich an Ornamentik und Symbolik ist. Das Ticket beinhaltet auch einen Besuche des Sagrada Familia Museums, wo Zeichnungen, Gipsmodelle und Bilder über die Geschichte und Entwicklung dieser Basilika von ihren frühen Anfängen bis heute zu sehen sind. Das Museum vermittelt außerdem wertvolle Informationen über Leben und Karriere Gaudis.
Travel in comfort on an air-conditioned bus to the Colònia Güell, where you'll find the Gaudí crypt: a church where Antoni Gaudí put into practice many of the architectural solutions he later used at the Sagrada Familia. We guarantee that you'll have a better understanding of the world's most famous Catalan architect after you've visited the chapel.
The next stop will be Montserrat, a rocky outcrop with extraordinary formations that will capture your attention as soon as you begin to approach. It will seem even more impressive when you ride to the top of the mountain on the rack railway, a unique means of transport. There you'll be able to visit the Benedictine monastery and kiss the Moreneta, an 11th century wood carving of the patron saint of Catalonia, or explore the many paths inside the natural park on foot.
No other trip will allow you to enjoy nature, spirituality and architecture at the same time!
