Park Güell by Antonio Gaudí

Antoni Gaudí Park Güell Entrance Dragon Fountain

Park Güell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell who wanted to create a stylish park for Barcelona aristocracy.

Antonio Gaudí Park Güell – large organic looking columns made from stone.

The Park Güell express entry tickets are included FREE with the Barcelona City Pass. Click here to learn more.

The park contains amazing stone structures (see below), stunning tiling and fascinating buildings. You can see from this picture the Gaudí dragon fountain that is at the entrance to Güell Park. This dragon is adorned in beautiful coloured tiling and there is something rather hypnotic and magical about it.

Here you can see a walkway supported by twisting rock pillars that seem to be growing out of the ground like tree trunks. Although these are rather irregular in shape they do feel strangely natural too.

Gaudí was strongly influenced by natural shapes and used them in his work.

The Gatehouse at the entrance to Park Guell

At the top of Güell Park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona City. Here you will find multi-coloured tiled mosaic seats as shown in this picture. The vibrant colours of the tiles are truly breathtaking.

Park Güell by Antoni Gaudí The house in which Gaudí lived is now a museum.

Park Güell also has a small house in the park which Gaudí lived in at one stage. The house has now been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudí.

If you’re visiting the park by metro be prepared for at least a 20 minutes walk. The last 200 m walk is up a steep hill. If you have difficulties going up steep steps then a taxi or bus may be a better means of transport. You’ll find bus information at the tourist information office at Plaça de Catalunya.

Due to Park Güell’s location and size you’ll need to schedule at least half a day for a visit to Güell Park but it will be well worth the visit.

Can Artigas Gaudí Gardens: the architect’s secret masterpiece

Can Artigas Gaudí Gardens is an unknown masterpiece of the great architect, hidden at the foot of the Pyrenees, 130 km from Barcelona. Antoni Gaudí and Barcelona are inextricably linked, the city should be grateful to its ingenious inhabitant for the created architectural treasures that are so memorable that they make you come back to them again and again. Gaudí left priceless creations to his beloved city. But it’s not just Barcelona that has invaluable wealth. The architectural masterpieces of Gaudí are scattered throughout Catalonia.

For example, Gaudí designed the wonderful gardens that Pobla de Lillet is rightfully proud of. The gardens of Can Artigas were created in an atmosphere of secrecy and for a long time were not associated with the name of Gaudí. Everything changed in 1971, when the authorship of a genius was discovered – the gardens were put in order and overnight became so attractive that they had a page on the Internet and a huge number of fans.

Can Artigas gardens: symbolism

In the Artigas Gardens, as in many of his other works, Gaudí used Christian symbols. Incredible in its simplicity and at the same time a very extraordinary idea was embodied by the great Gaudi in the Artigas gardens. The gardens of Can Artigas were created according to the principle of a “box of surprises” and are full of amazing discoveries with elements characteristic of it.

Can Artigas Gardens: arched chain

To enjoy the view from the top of the gardens, you will have to pass by dragons and stone serpents. Here, Gaudi used his favorite element – an arched chain that adorns a cave with a mineral spring. Gaudi also used in this creation of his and another favorite element of many works – a large number of Christian symbols, reminiscent of the frailty of human existence.

Tetromorphs are symbols of the four evangelists. Located in Can Artigas along the perimeter in the form of a cross:

  • the angel San Mateo stands on the Cascade;
  • the eagle of San Juan fits on the Crooked Bridge;
  • the lion of San Marco is keenly vigilant on Pergola;
  • a Bullspring is guarded by a San Lucas bull.

How the gardens of Can Artigas appeared

The gardens of Gaudi Can Artigas appeared in the town thanks to Gaudi and by chance. At 19In 05, Gaudí was discharged to Castellar de Nuc by his patron, philanthropist Eusebi Güell, who had a cement factory here. Gaudí was put in charge of building the Chalet de Catllaras, a proposed colony for the engineers who supplied the plant with coal. At the same time, Gaudi had to live in the neighboring town of Joan Artigas. The master was very grateful to the one who gave him shelter, and in gratitude brought the Gardens of Can Artigas to life.

Gaudí’s passion for his new brainchild was so strong that he sent the same craftsmen to build the gardens that embodied his ideas for Barcelona’s Parc Güell.

“Chalet de Catllaras” – the house for which Gaudi came to these places – today is in a very deplorable state and is waiting for reconstruction.

At the foot of the Pyrenees, near the small town of La Pobla de Lilliet, hides a little-known monument of landscape architecture created by the brilliant architect Antoni Gaudí.

Artigas Gardens – a forgotten and rediscovered creation of Gaudi

The creation of the famous architect – Artigas Gardens (Jardins Artigas) – located in Catalonia, 130 km from Barcelona, ​​on the banks of the Llobregat River (Llobregat). They seem to be dissolved in the surrounding landscape and embody Gaudi’s main idea – to build the way nature builds.

History of origin

Chalet built by Gaudí (photo: RAMÓN)

The park was created in 1903–10. for industrialist Joan Artigas Alart (Joan Artigas i Alart). Gaudí lived in his house (1902-1303), when he designed a residential chalet (Chalet de Catllaras) for the cement factory workers of Eusebio Güell. In gratitude for the warm welcome, the architect created a landscape project for Artigas – a “replica” of the famous Park Güell. Joan Artigas Alart, never had time to see the desired gardens, he died in December 1903. However, his son – Joan Artigas Casas (Joan Artigas i Casas), continued the embodiment of a great idea. By the autumn of 1906, the garden was almost completely completed, minor improvements continued for another 4 years.

Chalet de Catllaras, Gaudí’s home for cement factory workers, is now in ruins and awaiting restoration. Location on the map.

In 1934, the son of the owner of the garden, Joan Artigas Casas, died. In the 1950s, the family moved to Barcelona. The gardens were abandoned, the sketches of the project burned down, no one knew about the authorship of Gaudi. In 1971, the El Correo Catalán newspaper published a version of the park’s alleged origin. It was officially confirmed, and restoration began in 1989.

Artigas Gardens

Waterfall Stone

Artigas Jardins are very small, you can walk them non-stop in 5 minutes, but for a careful and leisurely walk, lay down about 40 – 60 minutes. During this time, you will definitely have time to re-photograph all the architectural elements and enjoy the picturesque nature.

The garden is inscribed in a mountainous forest landscape, divided in two by the Llobregat River. At the lower level, by the river, is the La Cascada waterfall in the form of a large stone covered with moss. Further – a grotto, with a source of Magnesia, the water of which is rich in magnesium oxide. This spring gave the garden its original name, Jardí de la Font de la Magnèsia.

The construction of the garden began with the creation of an artificial cave that protected the source of healing water. Inside, benches and two windows were installed so that you can sit and admire the turbulent Llobregat.

Gaudi depicted four symbols of the Evangelists, placing them in the park in the form of a cross. Two sources: Lion (San Marco) – located on Pergola and Bull (St. Luke) – hidden in the shade of pine trees. An eagle (Saint John) tops the stairs on the way to the pavilion. The figure of the Angel (San Mateo) has not been preserved in the grotto.

The center of the park composition is a bridge with twisted arched stone railings and two figures by Ramon Millet at the entrance. At the highest point is the Glorietta gazebo, which offers a view of almost the entire territory of the garden.

How to get to Artigas Gardens?

Despite the fact that La Pobla de Lillet is a small town, finding the way to Gaudí’s creation can be quite difficult. So we drove the whole city twice before we reached the goal.

The point is that the street Carrer de Salvador Torrents, along which we were driving a car, ended abruptly, and then there was a narrow Carrer del Ferrocarril in one lane with rails in the middle. It seemed that there were no prohibition signs, and the sign showed that the gardens were further away, but we did not dare to go to the “meeting fate”.

So we went circling around the city in search of an alternative road. Carefully following the signs, we again found ourselves in front of the Carrer del Ferrocarril with a narrow gauge railway in the center. It was decided to go along it, and on the maps. me maps, car parking was indicated further.

Parking there is very small (free of charge), in season there may not be enough space on it.

And by the way, the train runs along the road! The red light signal lights up when the road is prohibited. But if nothing burns, then the road is free. True, it is not clear what to do with oncoming cars? But we were lucky – there was no oncoming.

From the parking lot to the Artigas Gardens, walk about 5 minutes along the tracks until you see the train station. They sell tickets to the garden and to the train, which travels around the city on purpose, delivering tourists to the most interesting places.

If you have time, leave your car at the tourist office (car on the map), buy a ticket for the Cement train and take your time, get to know the city of La Pobla de Lilliette and its main attractions.

Cement Train

Güell Heritage – Cement Train (Tren del Ciment). Since 2005, he has been carrying tourists. A 3.2 km long narrow gauge railway connects four stations. From the tourist office, where the rolling stock exhibition takes place, the railway goes to the city center – La Pobla Center station; moving on to Jardins Artigas, past the Gardens.
