Close-up Captures of Park Guell

As a photographer, I’m always looking for the ‘not so obvious’ subjects and Park Guell had lots – I just had to keep my eyes open!

Park Guell is such a lovely green space with a variety of plants on either side of its walkways – like this one on the way to the Laundry Room Portico.

There are all kinds of flowers, shrubs and trees to see.

The park also attracts a few feathered visitors.

Gaudi was a fan of creating trencadis which is a mosaic made up with broken tile pieces. It’s a feature that is prominent throughout Park Guell.

Gaudi also created features that blend into the natural surroundings – like this curved seating area.

Located on a hillside is Casa Trias which was the only other house that was lived in during Guell and Gaudi’s time in the park.

Because the park is on different levels, you get good views of the park.

And the city beyond.

Until it’s time to leave by the exit on Carrer d’Olot.

For me, it’s fun to find these smaller details, but Gaudi got me intrigued with the big stuff too!
