Parc Guell, Barcelona

4.1
#1 of 73 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.

  • Beautiful place. Colorful and magical. They were just repairing the terrace, so we had the opportunity to see exactly how the water system is made. A marvel.

  • The park is good to roam around. You need some good amount of around 2 hrs to complete. The Park is free from 7 am to 8.30 am for the paid area. After which you need a ticket to roam in the paid area. In case you don't get the ticket you can roam around the free area as well. Climb up the park to get a good view of the city
  • Be forewarned that the visiting hours might vary according to season. So check the original site of the park. Also, you have to be there at the exact time written on your ticket. Otherwise you might have to wait for hours for the next available free time. From the metro station to the park it's a difficult uphill walk, especially so, if it is in summer. The park used to be free for everybody. Now you have to pay 7 to 8 euros. Take into consideration that what you pay for is the small part of the park which contains the Gaudí monuments. The rest of the park is free, but it isn't something you won't see at your home town too. Plus, at the point of writing (1 October 2018), substantial parts of the monumental area are under construction, hence closed to the public. For the visit of the house you have to pay extra and you might have to stand in line for a long time. Keeping in mind these facts, I have to add that the place is beautiful, but I find the asked price too high.
  • Very nice park. At the moment there is a lot of maintenance going on so you might not see, the fool glory of it. But still worth a visit.
  • One of the must-visit-points in Barcelona! Excellent park , great view, we had a nice walk around the park. One area of the park has limited numbers of visitors. We booked our visit in this special area in advance online to save the time which worked out really well. I would recommend you to book your visit online in advance, if you plan to visit Park Güell. It's worth it!
  • This is a must see. Very cool to look around. Best photograph opportunities to share about your travels in Barcelona. Really cool in the morning with the sunrise. $8 per person
