The Large Square

The sandy terrain and the line of palm trees that go round it on its mountainous side give the large square, the geographical and organisational centre or Park Güell, a genuine mediterranean atmosphere.It was inaugurated in 1909, when the serpertine bench going around it hadn´t even been started. Since then and for decades, it has hosted a multitude of acts of all variety: music and dance beneficts, theatrical performances, sports, political and cultural events.
