Entering the park through the majestic wrought iron gate, which protects its peace and tranquility from the noisy Diagonal Avenue, you will immediately find yourself in an era of exquisite classicism. A multicolored floral carpet flows smoothly into an oval pond, in the center of which a marble beauty sits elegantly. Up from the pond, two alleys symmetrically diverge. Immediately above the pond - a waterfall and a green slope with laurels and orange trees. Vegetation in the royal garden is the most diverse. There are palm trees, cypresses, cedars, lindens, fragrant eucalyptus trees, magnolias, cypresses, pines, acacias, and many other flowering plants that form pleasant fragrant shadows. There is even a small bamboo grove! Numerous alleys of the park, located with the geometric precision of classicism, are decorated with bamboo benches, marble statues and fountains. There are several fountains in the park; there is even one hand of Gaudi himself, hiding in a remote corner. It was really not easy to find him, for a while they did not know about its existence in the park for some time and were found by chance only in 1984 during the restoration of the territory. In addition, Gaudi’s parabolic pergola, which is shaped like the Sagrada Familia column, remained overgrown with creepers in the park. The main property of the park is, of course, the royal palace, presented by the famous entrepreneur Joan Guel to King Alfonso XIII. This residence was built in 1921 to replace the burned out right on Christmas Day in 1875. King Alfons XIII managed to stop in his palace only once, in 1926. Soon Franco came to power, and all the royal luxury for many years passed into the hands of the Republic. Now the palace is open to the public. In the halls of the palace much has been preserved from the former pompous receptions, including the royal throne chair with golden lions. In addition, two museums fit in here: the Museum of Ceramics and the Museum of Decorative Arts.
