Antoni Cornet Gaudi
Anthoni Gaudi Cornet was born in 1852 in a Catalan village called Reus. When Gaudi received his diploma of architecture in 1878 his teachers were still not sure if Gaudi was a crazy man or a genius. Later turned out he was a genius, he was just many years ahead than others. Listed some of his most famous works below.
1 Casa Battlo
If you have never been to Barcelona there are some things you just have to see or experience. We will start with the top 3 of Gaudi´s highlights, as mister Gaudi work cannot be ignored in this Catalan city. In the first place we have Casa Batllo, the house by Gaudi has been built beginning 1900 for the family Batllo. It is always known as the dragon house as it is inspired by the tale of George and the dragon. It is very recommended to visit this house as it is really an amazing piece of architecture and fantasy. On the other hand it is always crowded and the prices are a minor. But if that does not bother you and it is very recommended.
2 La Sagrada Familia
La Sagrada Familia is the most visited building in Spain, it gets about 4 million visitors per year and thanks to this there is a budget to continue the works. It is said it will be finished in 2026 after 144 years of work. It is another must-see, if you think it looks great on the outside you will be blown away when you are on the inside. Minors are that it is always very crowded and that most of the time tickets are sold out for a visit on the same day. The good thing is that there are no more hours long waiting lines as you will get a certain time frame appointed.
3 Park Güell
The park was constructed from 1900 – 1914 for the family Guell, the architect was Gaudi. The park was donated by the family Guell to the city of Barcelona. Park Güell is certainly one of the most famous sights of Barcelona. The with split ceramics decorated winding bank above the by Roman temples inspired market hall is world-famous. Gaudí has created a fabulous forest with this park. Take a little time to be enchanted by the Park Güell. It is another unique work from the master himself. Minors, crowded as in overcrowded and also here are tickets sold out on same day visit.
4 Casa Mila
Casa Mila (1906-1912) is a building designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi on behalf of Pere Milà and Roser Segimon.
Casa Mila (1906-1912) is the most iconic work of Antoni Gaudi’s bourgeois architecture because of its constructive and functional innovations as well as its decorative and decorative solutions. It is a total work of art.
