The Porta del Drac (Dragon’s Gate) used to be the private entrance for the Güell family. Industrialist Eusebi Güell owned an estate in the Les Corts district with a Caribbean-style mansion called Torre Satalia, which is situated roughly where the Palau Reial de Pedralbes now stands. Güell contracted Antoni Gaudí to remodel the entrance lodges and gardens for the estate. […]
Torre de Collserola was designed by the architect Sir Norman Foster and by the Spanish civil engineers Julio Martínez Calzón and Manuel Julià Vilardell. The tower was built in 1991 and is located on Tibidabo hill in the Serra de Collserola. It is primarily used as a TV and radio transmitter.
Catalan entrepreneur Eusebi Güell launched the construction of the Colonia Güell in 1890 on his country estate Can Soler de la Torre, in the region of Baix Llobregat, about 20km from Barcelona.
