photoblog image Barcelona: Park Güell 2

Barcelona: Park Güell 2

In 1984, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site. It was originally inspired by the typical English garden, meant to occupy the then rocky hill with little vegetation, with large country houses for the upper class. The premium was that this spot would afford beautiful views and would be well removed from the polluted industrial areas. From a financial point of view, the project did not succeed to the expected extent. But in this period, Gaudi developed and perfected his style and applied uninhibited creative liberty. Much of this experience would then be later deployed in his efforts on the Sagrada Familia. This feathered friend was spotted on the branch of a tree in this mentioned park.

This is an exceĺlent post, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Ray.
A cute little fella Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I am glad I got him, Frank.
He's beautiful! Too bad the project was not all it'd built up to be...
Ayush Basu: That was then, Elizabeth. Now it seems to be well visited by locals and tourists to enjoy a bit of nature walk and see some of Gaudi's works.
Quel beau perroquet !
Ayush Basu: A pleasure to see it.
This feathered friend surely sees the amazing creativity of Gaudi's brilliant mind. I love that park, Ayush.
