The Parc Güell is an obligatory stop on every tourist route to Barcelona, one of the things to see absolutely in Barcelona.
The history of this park is linked to the idea of the financier Eusebi Güell who at the beginning of 1900 commissioned to Gaudì the project of building a "garden-city" in one of its great properties.
The plan was great: build a small town with 60 houses completely immersed in a park, respecting the shape of Mount Carmel, its nature, without cutting down any tree and with an ingenious system of water recovery.
Here the climate is magnificent and the view of the sea and Barcelona is enviable.
Built between 1910 and 1914, unfortunately or fortunately the original project was realized only in part and at the death of Guell, in 1926, the park was donated to the city.
From that moment Parc Güell is part of every tourist itinerary in Barcelona and is considered one of the most beautiful parks in the world.

Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
