In the Fossar is the tomb of the Catalan President Lluís Companys, among other monuments.

Park Güell + Sagrada Familia

Park Güell

In 1900, Gaudí was given the assignment by Eusebi Güell of designing Park Güell. Güell understood better than any of his contemporaries the meaning of Gaudí’s architecture. The relationship between the two men was not simply that of an artist and his patron, but a real story of friendship.

For many years the Güell family lived in the large family house (now a school) that stood on the land where the development was located, while Gaudí lived in one of the two houses that were built there.

In the businessman’s own lifetime, the park was already considered to be one of Barcelona’s great tourist attractions, and the large square was often let for staging Catalanist events, traditional Catalan sardana dancing and other civic and social events.


Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia, designed by Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) is a symbolic expression in stone of the Christian faith. In this temple, an exaltation of the Family of Nazareth as a model for a united family, Christians, especially Roman Catholics, can recognise the tenets of their faith. Likewise, those who profess a different faith or none at all can find in it the keys for understanding the Christian religion: the history of the Church, the Sacred Scriptures, the tradition of dedication to the Saints, Christian doctrine and worship.

The Sagrada Familia is an international centre for spirituality which, in an exceptional setting, invites people of all backgrounds and faiths to share in a sense of life based on love, harmony, good, generosity and peace.
