If you visit Barcelona, you will see the name of Gaudí everywhere, but maybe you don´t now exactly who he is, what he has done and why he is so famous. However if you hear the name of monuments such as : Sagrada Familia, La Casa Milá-La Pedrera, la casa Vicenc, La Casa Batlló o Park Güell, you will very quickly associate these names with Barcelona. Gaudí is the author of all these works.
Born in 1852 in Reus (Tarragona, near Barcelona), from his childhood, Gaudí loved to observe the nature and putting special attention to its forms, shapes and colours. In1868 he decided to study architecture in Barcelona in a school dominated by Neoclasic and Romantic tendencies of the period. Therefore a great historical-oriental influence can be observed on his first production together with the use of medieval elements.
