photoblog image Barcelona: Park Güell 1

Barcelona: Park Güell 1

The Park Güell is a combination of a public park and some private area located on Carmel Hill of Barcelona. A Count Güell engaged Gaudi for this project and the park was built from 1900 to 1914 and was officially opened as a public park in 1926.

 

These visitors on the steps have just crossed over a cordon that indicates that it is not allowed to go up the stairs. In all fairness, the stone slabs did not look to be in a terribly unsafe condition, but the park authorities probably wanted to safeguard themselves. But anyway, coming back to the Park, I will feature some more shots.

An interesting image, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I hope to keep you hooked to the rest of the series, Ray.
A la longue, les gens vont abîmer l'édifice en marchant dessus.
Ayush Basu: I think you are right, Martine, but they did not seem to be bothered.
Maybe it was to protect the steps, not the tourists?
Anyway - I like your photo!!
Ayush Basu: I think you are right, but that did not seem to deter the tourists, Elizabeth.

This looks like a good viewpoint Ayush
Ayush Basu: The city of Barcelona was visible far and wide, Chris.
I like the structure and love the arrow.
Ayush Basu: I like the structure too, Mary.
Of course if one of them had had an accident and got hurt they would probably sue the local authority for damages!
Ayush Basu: I hope they own up to the consequences of the choices they made, Brian.

They must be Dutch. The Dutch are known to read "No entrance" as some kind of invitation smile
Ayush Basu: Haha, I have heard that before, even from the Dutch themselves, Louis.

I think I would have like to climb to the top of those stairs.

Maybe just sometimes you have to break the rules?
