Parc Guell, Barcelona

4.1
#1 of 70 in Parks in Barcelona
One of many notable city structures designed by famed architect Antoni Gaudí, Parc Guell is a garden complex built between 1900 and 1914. World Heritage–listed, this complex is noted for being one of the largest architectural structures in this part of Europe. Though it features some of the finest examples of Gaudí’s creativity, for many visitors the highlight is not the exquisite architecture, but the sweeping views. Just inside the main entrance is the interpretive visitor center, featuring an exhibit about Gaudí’s building methods, as well as displays on the history of the park. Wooded and laced with footpaths, the park attracts over 4 million visitors each year. The park can be reached on foot, but if you wish to avoid a vigorous uphill walk, hitch a ride on the public bus.

  • The park had some areas under renovation, the day was gray, but even so, Gaudí's works could color any cloudy day. I believe that when the works are finished, it will be much more pleasant to visit...  more »
  • I had always thought that Parc Guell was bigger than it actually is. It was great fun exploring and seeing all the sights, but even though it was the off season, it was crowded. The architecture...  more »

  • The guided tour was well worth the knowledge obtained. Went middle of January with parts under reconstruction so some photo opportunities were not great, but the city view from the large garden were amazing. The mosaic work is beautiful all the way around.
  • An excellent tourist attraction with amazing views of mosaic patterned monuments and park. It is full of architectural grandeur and beauty, and is full of colors and life. There are lot of activities for kids to keep them busy. You can sit and relax and have a nice day out with family. There are restaurants and eating areas, and sitting benches in the park. It is easy to reach by metro or bus.
  • Quite crowded even in Jan. Wouldn't dream of going in busy summer months . Good option is to get there by 8am and its free to get into the main paid area. There are multiple entry points and unless you go in via the main park entrance, its not easy to navigate your way round the park which is huge
  • Visit this place every time when you come to Barcelona. First time should visit the paying area (but February 2020 there were reconstruction works). Later it's amazing to walk just in free area. We bought tickets online, which included also transfer. Good option, but no guarantee to get a free place in a bus. Super escape from hot coast!
  • The park is beautiful but make sure you book tickets in advance as it sold out the day we went to visit. We enjoyed the free section and the parts over the barriers but would have been even better on the inside.
