Mosaic reptile at Park Guell
Trencadís (Catalan pronunciation: [tɾəŋkəˈðis]) is a type of mosaic used in Catalan modernism, created from broken tile shards. Catalan architects Antoni Gaudí and Josep Maria Jujol used trencadís in many projects, particularly Barcelona's Parc Güell. Gaudi used discarded pieces of ceramic tiles collected from the factory "Pujol i Bausis" located in Esplugues de Llobregat, and pieces of white ceramic from broken cups and plates discarded by other Spanish manufacturers.
Parc Guell, Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona holds a special place in my heart because my bf met me there while I was studying abroad in France. The architecture of Antoni Gaudi (which can be found throughout the city) makes Barcelona such an eclectic and whimsical locale. Love it!
