Park Guell was designed and initiated by Antoni Gaudi in 1898. Gaudi’s unique genius is on display all over Barcelona. He blends natural scenes into his construction. These trees are supports for pedestrian walkways that carry people through the park. Gaudi modeled this section after the Jardins de la Fontaine in Nimes France.

  1. Great spotting of these wall arts. I am wondering they were painted by the owner of the buildings or someone came later and did them. The spiderman work would need supporting structure to paint that high. I am imagine.

    I like the street shot of the man playing the instruments. Nice shot of him.

    • I suspect they may have been done by art students at the university? Just a guess though. That is an excellent point about the spidermen. Maybe a blogger will enlighten us!

  3. Wow, the face on the wall in that second picture looks like it’s coming right out of the wall! You showcase a lot of talented artists, as well as lots of colorful scenes in your photos. The trees as part of the construction of walkways is unique and beautiful. Great pictures!
