A public park featuring gardens and architectonic elements, Park Guell is located on Carmel Hill in Barcelona. Work on the park began in 1900 and it was officially opened for the public in 1926. Park Guell was designed by Gaudi during his naturalist phase and showcased his personal style through inspiration from organic shapes. In fact, this strangely enchanting place is one of the few places in the world where the artificial seems more natural than the natural. Inside the main entrance on Carrer d'Olot is the park's Centre d'Interpretation, a curvaceous former porter's house which houses a display on Gaudi's building methods and also the history of the park. The steps from entrance is guided by a mosaic dragon and lead to the Doric Temple. This is a forest featuring 86 stone columns.
