This park arose from the desire of Eusebi Güell, who commissioned Gaudí to construct a residential park next to his property, Can Montaner.

The work, directed by Antoni Gaudí, lasted 4 years, from 1900 to 1904 and the architects F. Berenguer and Josep Maria Jujol worked alongside the genius from Reus. All of the ornaments of the park, entrances, fountains, columns, benches, etc. were the work of Gaudí.

The most outstanding spots of this magnificent park include the Room of a Hundred Columns, above which is a wonderful wave-shaped viewpoint, the staircase near the main entrance and the Dragon Fountain. Gaudí lived in one of the houses of the park before moving to the Sagrada Familia. Inside the park is the Gaudí Museum, which displays personal articles of the brilliant architect and evidence of his professional projects.

It also has a library specialized in Gaudí-related subjects, which can be consulted by appointment.
