The Parc Guell, Barcelona

The lodge at the main entrance to the Guell Park is a rounded building of sandstone, with two towers. On one there is a red and white representation of a fly agaric mushroom. The sloping sides of this tower are a mosaic of tiles arranged into white and coloured areas. The taller tower is mosaicked in blue and white and has a cross at the top.

There is another gate house on the opposite side of the gates (below).
