> Parc de la Ciutadellatop ^
The Parc de la Ciutadella has been opened in 1888, when the world exhibition took place here in Barcelona. The gardens of the 30 hectare park have been designed by the French landscape architect Jean Forestier. Those gardens are situated around a couple of fountains which are partially invented by the student Antoni Gaudí. In the Parc de la Ciutadella you will also find the national zoo, the Arc del Triomf, the Museu d'Art Modern and a pond.
> Plaça Reialtop ^
By designing the lampposts at Plaça Reial the young Gaudí enlarged his practical experience. This was his first official order. There is also a fountain at the plaza and some palmtrees to complete it all.
> Casa Vicenstop ^
In 1878 brick- and tile manufacturer Manuel Vicens already asked Antoni Gaudí to build him a summer residence. It still lasted untill 1883 untill Gaudí really started the job. The Casa Vicens is a colorful collection of all kind of styles, like the Mudejarstyle, which is the most recognizable one. In 2005 the house has been added to the Unesco World Heritage Liast.
> Sagrada Familiatop ^
In 1883 the 31-year old Gaudí took over the work on the building of the church of the Holey Family, the Sagrada Familia. During his building activities he adjusted the original designs as much as possible to his own wishes and ideas. In the beginning he still thought that he would be able to complete the church within 10 years. Eventually he didn't make it before his death in 1926 and even now the church is not finished yet. It became Gaudí's life work, he even went along the doors, collecting money for the construction activities. In 2005 the Sagrada Familia has also been added to the World Heritage List of Unesco.
> Finca Güelltop ^
After finishing the house El Capricho in Comillas (1883-1885) Gaudí got the order to build the stables and pavilions on the estate of his friend and protector Eusebi Güell. Unfortunately the biggest part of the former country estate is no longer there. The Güells gave it away to the Royal family and some parts were used for new roads, like the wellknown Diagonal.
> Palau Güelltop ^
Gaudí's next order again came from Eusebi Güell: the construction of a city palace near the Ramblas. The palace looks kind of glommy from the street, but accommodates an extraordinary interior and has a fairytale-like garden on the roof. This building can be found on the Unesco World Heritage List since 1984.
> Colegio Teresianotop ^
With the budget and the decorations on the outside of this convent Gaudí really had to withhold himself. Thrift and slenderness were important for his principal: father Enric d'Osso, founder of the guild of the Theresian nuns.
> Casa Calvettop ^
Casa Calvet was an order from the community of Barcelona and should house a company and a living area. It was this building, undoubtedly Gaudí's most conventional one, that brought him an honour from the city.
> Bellesguard - Casa Figuerestop ^
In 1900 Gaudí started his work on Bellesguard, also known as Casa Figueres. Once the manor Bellesguard (beautiful sight) of Martí I, the last king of Barcelona, used to be on this very same spot. Gaudí never completed Bellesguard himself, in 1917 it was Domènec Sugranes who did so.
> Park Güell (en Gaudí Museum)top ^
The original idea that Eusebi Güell had with this barren hill in the northern part of Barcelona was to build a residencial paradise, a garden city. Eventually it became a park, with lots of green and only 2 instead of 60 residences. There were no people interested in a house on this place and only Gaudí and Güell himslef came to live here. In 1984 this park has also been added to the World Heritage List of Unesco.
> Casa Batllótop ^
Another world heritage (since 2005) by Antoni Gaudí. This time the assignment came from Josep Batlló i Casanovas, a wealthy fabrics manufacturer, who wanted to have his dull house rebuilt to exceed the modern houses in the neighbourhood. His plan succeeded: Casa Batlló must have been the most modernistic building in the entire area.
> Casa Milà - La Pedreratop ^
Casa Milà or La Pedrera is the last building designed by Gaudí, before he completely fell upon his lifework: the Sagrada Familia. Principal for the construction was the rich Milà family, with whom he got some severe quarrels in the end. This large building of over 1000 square metres became a Unesco World Heritage in 1984.
