An urban park next to Carrer d'Olot standing on the Muntanya Pelada to the north of the Barcelona district of Gràcia. Gaudí planned and directed the construction of the park from 1900 to 1914 for Eusebi Güell as infrastructure and facilities for a residential garden city based on English models. It was intended for sixty single-family residences. The project, however, was unsuccessful and the park became city property in 1923. It is one of Gaudí's most colourful and playful works. Gaudí's house in the park is now a museum where you can see some furniture designed by the master.
