PARK GUELL, Barcelona

Uploaded Image

The Doric colonnade which supports the square is an imposing space that was originally designed as a market place.
The ceiling roses of the colonnade show interpretations of suns, medusas etc.

Park Guell is situated in the Barcelona district of La Salut. Gaudi worked on the construction, inspired by the concept of the garden city, between 1900 and 1914.
