I guess you could say this was my Hansel and Gretel moment. The two houses at the park entrance I believe are as close as you can get to the fairy tale in real life. The Monumental Zone of the park is not particularly big, but the playful architecture of Antoni Gaudi is so impressive that it makes the park a massive attraction. In addition to the famous buildings there are, among other things, lovely sculptures, a huge terrace with nice views of the city, and two different kinds of colonnades – one of the traditional kind (as conventional as it is possible in the world of Gaudi), and one very remarkable, untraditional one.
The Güell Park is pretty big, so it would be wise to make sure that you enter from the front of the park, at the Monumental Zone, and not from the back of the park, as I ended up doing…
