As a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, this park features winding surrealist stone columns, whimsical mosaic-laden animal sculptures and a whole lot of stuff to appeal to your inner artist and architect. Commissioned by Gaudí patron Eusebi Güell as a stylish park for Barcelona’s upper class, Park Güell was donated to Barcelona in 1922. Gaudi’s former residence on the property is now a museum, the Casa-Museu Gaudi. If you’re visiting Park Güell, wear comfortable shoes: the walk to the park is uphill, but it’s well worth it for the surreal sculptures and city views.
