Trencadís Serpentine Bench at Park Guell, Barcelona

Trencadís Serpentine Bench at Park Guell, Barcelona [Looks Better Enlarged]
© All Rights Reserved

From 1900 to 1914 Antoni Gaudi directed the construction of this park for Eusebi Güell. In 1923, Güell's family gave the estate property to the city. Another jewel for mankind to treasure. How many people came to sit on this bench, how many couples , how many families? (check old pictures here). I gathered some images trying to be original but this was no virgin territory. You almost have to elbow your way to take a decent picture. The sun is disappearing fast leaving behind soft golden tones on top of the broken shards of tile, no one in the way, I can't believe it. Click.

Carlos, That is some bench! I saw Gaudi's work once a long time ago. Rather than serenity and peace as described in the link, I felt overwhelmed because of its unusual nature. It is more than remarkable

Me gusta el tamaño en el que muestras las fotos. He intentado conseguirlo cambiando los parámetros pero no hay manera. Si fueras tan amable me gustaria que me explicaras como hacerlo,
