Park Guell, Barcelona

#Nature / Park, #Must See
One of many notable city structures designed by famed architect Antoni Gaudí, Park 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.

  • A sunny Day in march - tickets ordered online made it easy and fricktionless to get into the park. A breath taking view over Barcelona the Bay ... and spring just arraived ! A must if you are in Barce...  more »
  • In good weather, the visit is absolutely recommended - one meanders through some haunted trails and has great views over Barcelona as a reward. And the best: it costs no admission!

  • In the week of the Kar, the Park is quite full. In Barcelona, the Park is certainly a highlight because it offers a beautiful view of the city. Entrance fee to the fun part. I was already a few times there (without admission) and have denied it so this time me. A construction site is also there at the time. The flora and fauna is beautiful to look at and very well maintained. You should always plan a bit up and down and not fun in any weather. The walk from the Metro is again about 10 minutes lang(bergauf). I love the view and can therefore recommend the Park.

  • The first thing you should know about the park - you can’t just come here. You should preferably book the tickets online. Most likely it would be sold out for that day but you are able to book tickets for 3 months in advance. The ticket costs 7,5 euro and would have a specific time frame when you can visit the park on it. For example 6 Pm. It means that you can entrance the park from 6 pm to 6:30 pm. I would recommend to come 15 later the time stated in your ticket to avoid waiting at the entrance line. Secondly, be prepared that inside you would also have to wait in line - for at least another hour to get inside the buildings. Thirdly, well it would be insanely overcrowded. That in mind, the place is, of course, amazing and must be seen
  • Amazing park with breath taking views of Barcelona. Was nice sunny Sunday afternoon and the place was overflowed with people and tourists. there are some bridges and design architecture, you may climb up the hill as well. Lots of artists from Spanish typical music played at guitar to classic music competing with the birds orchestra from the park. Nice to spend a whole afternoon, relax, listen to music and walk around. Highly recommended. There is a public Bus that takes you directly to the park
  • Atop a fairly steep hill, so be prepared for the walk or get a taxi if that's an issue. The place itself is beautiful. Would advise buying tickets in advance to avoid having to wait a couple of hours for your time slot on the day. Lots of lovely picnic spots. Great views.
  • I might seem rude but there's a lot of flaws to that place. First off, the parking is a nightmare to find (we never found it, turns out the parking is only for tourists buses). Second, 3/4 of the place/park is undergoing renovation so what's really worth to see? Third, you have to pay in order to have access to certain places of the park like the famous seats or that long row of seating area that's popular, when we went to buy the tickets, they said they were limited tickets only so we couldn't even buy them there because the park was already full (it was around 13:00 and the next available tickets were sold for 19:00). Sorry but for me, someone who likes to discover places and learn new things, that place was a big no no. I'd rather visit it through pictures on Google than in real life.
  • Lovely place to go for a nice hill stop view of the city. However I feel the paid areas are not worth it. I'd advised walking along the top area for a nice view of city. Can be very dusty and dry with whirlwind of dust flying around.
