Gaudi's House In Park Güell

From 1906 to 1925, Antoni Gaudi lived in one of the two model homes that were built in Park Güell. He didn't design this house, instead leaving those duties to a friend of his, Francesc Berenguer i Mestres. You can read more about the house here. It is now a museum and you can wander through, imagining you're a Gaudi guest. We did.

The house, a bit of a confectioner's bauble.

The genius of Gaudi, a brass door peep hole cover, looking half honey comb, have sea coral. Another exterior view.

Exotic projects, humble living.

Looking down, looking up at the elaborate finishes.

One of his most famous pieces of furniture, a prayer bench taken from the Church of Colònia Güell.
