History of Gaudi Museum
Gaudi house was a model house to be shown to prospective buyers of houses in Park Guell.
Back then, Park Guell was supposed to be a residential complex.
However, when not many buyers came to buy houses in the fancy residential complex, they converted it into a park.
Gaudi House was designed by Francesc d’Assís Berenguer i Mestres, Gaudí’s friend and right-hand-man.
Since his friend wasn’t a professional architect, Gaudi had to sign for the designs.
In 1963 – many years after Gaudí’s death, the house opened to the public as Gaudi House Museum.
It is also known as Casa Museu Gaudi.
This house gains significance because it was here that Gaudi designed some of his most famous works, such as Casa Mila, Park Guell, and the yet-to-be-completed Sagrada Família.
