|Hansel and Gretel's house and the tower are among Gaudi's |
many fanciful creations in Park Guell in Barcelona.
|A large plaza above the hall is perfect for relaxing,|
picnicking, or looking out over the sea. Benches are
elaborately decorated with multi-colored tile designs.

Even if you’re not a fan of capricious design elements, you’ll appreciate the amount of work that went into creating Park Guell, one of the largest architectural compounds in southern Europe and a icon in the city of Barcelona.
