There are also remains of the different places where the Romans worked. Great examples are the archaeological site of Cella Vinaria in Teià, where they produced wine, and another is Forn Roma La Fornaca where, thousands of years ago, 3 internal combustion furnaces were built to make ceramics in an industrial way.
Park Güell is another World Heritage Site in Barcelona. In 1900 this park began to be built with more than 17 hectares of surface. But it was not until 1926 that Park Güell in Barcelona was inaugurated. It is another work by Antonio Gaudí, together with Josep Maria Pujol and Juan Rubió.
