He was a wealthy industrialist who commissioned architect Antoni Gaudí for several projects including his residence and garden that was supposed to evolve into a community for the rich. Since 1923, the property has been Park Güell. A stroll through this park is an experience in visual flamboyance. The popular tourist attraction has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
