The heritage from Antoni Gaudí: Park Guëll - the walkways

These walkways are typical of one of the many expressions Gaudí left in Park Guëll. They look like paths found in the stories by Tolkien, or from the often grotesque fairy tales by the Grimm brothers. Even if they are obviously man made, they also kind of blend into the landscape around. This is so typical Gaudí, as he sought inspiration from nature. This inspiration often gives you a feeling that his buildings, though being solid stone structures, are alive, and in motion.
