Park Guell is named after the artists Gaudi's great patron, Count Guell. Initally, it was meant to be an elaborate residental garden for the high society of Spain but numerous economic troubles were encountered. Eventually the park was donated to the city in 1923 and is now an unique public area featuring the best gardens mingled with Gaudi's larger than life sculptures and mosaic tile work.
