Pinsteps. Dragon stairway

From the room Hipostil (Hall 100 columns) descend stairs, built between 1900 and 1903. Divided into two branches, it has 45 steps. In the central part there are fountains representing, among others, the Catalan countries: Northern Catalonia (French) and Southern Catalonia (Spanish). In this fountain, Gaudi placed the circle as a symbol of peace and a compass as a symbol of the architect. The second fountain contains the shield of Catalonia and the snake as a symbol of medicine. In the third source is a dragon or salamander. There are different versions of its meaning: it can be an alchemical salamander, which symbolizes the element of fire; the mythological python of the temple of Delphi; or crocodile, which appears on the emblem of the city of Nimes, where Guell grew up. This figure has become the emblem of the garden and one of the symbols of Barcelona.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
