Graceful Gaudi: Parc Guëll

Barcelona; Inspiration and Imagination to their full extend.
Parc Guëll, designed by Antoni Gaudi, is situated on the hill of El Carmel in Barcelona, Spain.Visiting Parc Guëll made me lose my orientation, my awareness of everything around me. This piece of art on the top of the hill is very colorful and overwhelming. Especially when you sit on the mosaic couch, which is enormous, and you get an incredible view of the city. The little pieces of mosaic opposed to the view of the city made me forget the difference between small and big. I knew I was ready to explore every little piece of art Gaudi realized in Barcelona.
