The Finca Güell Pavillions

Barcelona, Spain

The Güell Pavillions were built in 1883, when Eusebi Güell extende his estate in Pedralbes.
He asked Antoni Gaudí to create an entrance gate, a gatehouse, and stables. Gaudi undertook part of the conversion work (1884-87).
The entrance gate is probably one of the most stunning pieces of wrought-iron work in the world.
Locally known as the Drac de Pedralbes (the Dragon of Pedralbes) a huge reptile literally jumps out at you, his tongue extended and ready to attack.
The pavillions now belong to the University of Barcelona.
