PARK GUELL. .. Beyond the lizard are 84 stone columns in the Sala Hipóstila. Gaudí planned for this area to be a market place. It's open on most sides with a terrace on top. The terrace, called the Banc de Trenadis, is known for the mosaic tiled bench that curves sinuously around its entire perimeter. Try as you might, you'll never get a postcard photo of a wide view without hoards of tourists reclining in this open space.

For most of his last twenty years, Gaudí lived in a house on the park grounds. It is now a museum with some of his furniture and pieces that he designed for others. It's worth the entrance fee just to walk in the footsteps of greatness. Oh, yeah, the house, the park, and everything in it is another UNESCO World Heritage site.
