VSW: Barcelona, 3, Palace Guell

The rooftop chimney skins in the Palace Guell
are so beautiful — like sculpture gardens.
When the families lived in this palace,
I wonder how often they used the rooftop sculpture garden and for what —
did they have lunch on top or was this a
place for the servants and children?
The iconography is whimsical, and a wonder if Disney saw these sculptures?  They are far more colorful than expected seeing the rest of the palace, upside-down ice cream cones and magical trees, or triangular mountains with giant lizards.
