Park Güell - Barcelona. (Open Map)


A colorful salamander greeter

One of Parque Guell's most famous residents, El Dragon de Gaudi, sits playfully and ominously at the park's entrance. But the dragon's presences is felt throughout the park via serpentine benches and other salamander motifs carried over.

A victim of vandals some time back, El Dragon once again greets visitors at the fountain out front at the park. Children and parents remember best the mosaic seating about the park set to match the dragon's multicolored hide at the entrance.
