It was in 1900, when Antoni Gaudí was commissioned by the industrial Eusebi Güell, to project the Park Güell. Since its inception, the park was already considered one of the major touristic attractions in Barcelona. Besides enjoying the breathtaking views of the city, this great touristic attraction is known for: The famous Escalinata del Drac, els Pavellons de la Porteria, els Jardins d’ Àustria, el Pòrtic de la Bugadera, el Teatre Grec o Plaça de la Natura y la Sala Hispòstila.

At first, the nowadays public park, was designed as a large garden to house 60 homes with the intention of being sold to the Catalan upper class. Finally, just a few were interested in the houses and only sold two, reason why, the heirs of Count Güell decided to sell the garden to the Barcelona City Hall.
