Artigas Garden (1905)

When Gaudí was building the Catllaràs Chalet, he was invited by the industrialist Joan Artigas to project a garden in a land owned by him.
Gaudí lived in the house of the Artigas family and built the only humid garden known in his works. Its shape and tracks remind us of those of the Güell Park, which the architect had started to build five years before. The cylindrical summer-house, the artificial grotto, the banisters of the paths, the flower beds, a bridge and the large amount of water are to be outlined.
Nowadays, different guided tours enable us to get to know better this work of Gaudí which is little known.
