In deference to the properties and sites included in UNESCO's National Heritage List, Spain will make an annual release of a 2-euro commemorative coin. To be included in the UNESCO List presumes a pledge that the sites will be protected and will therefore remain well-preserved.
The 2014 coin issue in this series is dedicated to the Park Güell, the work of the prodigious Gaudí.
The 2-euro commemorative coin released in 2014 was dedicated to the Park Güell (Barcelona), a public park area created by the architect Antoni Gaudi at the beginning of the 20th century.
The foreground image on the obverse is an interpretation of the huge lizard sculpture, this being the most widely known symbol of the Park Guell. The background depicts a feature from one of the two pavilions at the entrance to the park grounds.
This is the fifth coin in the annual series dedicated to sites in Spain included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
