BARCELONA: Textures in Park Güell

Park Güell: From Private Estate to Public Park

Originally planned as a private estate of houses for wealthy families, the construction of Park Güell in Barcelona began in 1900.

Eusebi Güell employed Catalan architect Gaudi to draw up the plans.  Like all of Gaudi’s creations this park is on the Top Ten List in all guide books of sights to see in Barcelona.

Full information  can be found on the Park Güell Website.

For Cee’s Black & White Challenge: TEXTURES, here are a few monochrome images.

(As the park is ablaze with vibrant Catalan/Mediterranean colour, I’m probably one of the few people who switched my iPhone onto Black&white mode for a few holiday pictures. The morning we visited was overcast with drizzly rain, so Monochrome wasn’t too outlandish!))
