Barcelona's magical fountain is the largest in Europe and the second-largest fountain in the world. This fountain was a project of the 1929 Barcelona World Expo project. But it has been well maintained since the Expo and is now one of Barcelona's most popular attractions. The fountain has 3,620 water spouts, 8 colors for conversion, and 4,760 illuminators. It is these hardware technologies that create a dream with water and light. Every summer night, when the fountain starts the light show, it will attract many tourists who stop and watch, bringing a lot of happiness to everyone. Looking at people's happy expressions, you will feel that watching such a show is also very satisfactory.

Guell Park is divided into public areas and toll areas. We bought the tickets online in advance, booked for 3 o'clock admission. In the spare time waiting for admission, we went to the public garden area, and honestly said that if you don't go to the toll area, the park can still be enjoyed. But the essence of the beauty of this place is in the toll area. Every wall in the park is covered with completely different tiles. Spain is a country that esteems the ceramic tile culture, especially in Barcelona and Seville. From the steps next to the fountain, you can see the Baizhu Hall and the buildings supported by 86 Tao Like columns. It is difficult to guess that it was originally a market. Raise your head, and you can see the cute patterns on the top. Gaudi's design is always full of little surprises. Guell Park is also a place where people from all over the world are crazy about Gaudi’s design, even if it is just an unfinished place. It seems that something innovative is always appreciated. From this lizard-like staircase, you can climb the park's most elite small square. The square is surrounded by a curved bench with mosaics. Some people call it a long snake seat.
