The first concept of creating this park came from Hans (Johannes A.) who had also been previously involved in designing and constructing a mini- Europe in Brussels and a Minimundus in Austria.
In June 1985 Nicolau Casaus, Vice President of FC Barcelona, laid in place the first stone of camp Nou and Mini Estadi scale models.
The scale models of Sagrada Familia church required 13.000 work from six different people, Dali Theater and museum took over 500 hours from two different people, the Montserrat Mountain took over 5,000 hours of work from three different people.
