Originally, the banker Eusebi Güell wanted to have a garden city built. But Gaudí only managed to complete the infrastructure (streets, entries and main squares) between 1910 and 1914. The use of stones, ceramic shards, marble pieces etc. can be recognized in the whole park. It is especially conspicuous on the famous, wavy bench, on the ceiling of the hall and on the big dragon sculpture at the main stairs. The park is part of the UNESCO world heritage.
