Overview
Take a guided tour of Park Güell, designed by renowned architect Antoni Gaudí and arguably Barcelona's most beautiful public space. Follow your guide on an in-depth exploration of this magnificent site, checking out some of its most picturesque sights and learning fascinating facts about its eccentric designer, Gaudí. Along the way you're sure to enjoy the park's intricate tile work, colorful architecture and stunning city views afforded by its hilltop location. Your Park Güell tour also includes entrance fees at the site.
What to Expect
Take an in-depth exploration of the colorful Park Güell, one of Barcelona's most famous landmarks, during this tour with a local guide. This architectural marvel, designed by renowned Catalonian builder Antoni Gaudí, is a must-see for any Barcelona visitor or design-lover.
Make your own way to the entrance of Park Güell to start your exploration. Check with your tour operator at the time of booking to confirm the exact location and time of your meeting. Then follow your guide inside this fascinating public space to begin your visit. This one-of-a-kind architectural gem was built by the famed Antoni Gaudí in the early 1900s, based on a commission from Count Güell, a Barcelona local who hoped to create a residential estate for local families. After plans for the on-site housing were scrapped, the space was transformed into a public park for use by Barcelona residents.
Enter the park via the site's main staircase, which is dominated by a rainbow-colored lizard adorned with an intricate mosaic of tiles. This detailed style of tile work is known as trencadís, and is considered one of the characteristic design techniques of Barcelona. As you continue further inside the park, stop at its main square, which is flanked by the wavy profile of the snake-like trencadís-covered bench.
Step below the square, where you'll encounter the park's lower court. This intricately-designed area is supported by a phalanx of 86 Doric columns, along with walking paths and viaducts set on sloping columns. Many have remarked on the symbiotic relationship between Gaudí's designs and the natural world, a relationship which is evident in the tree-like design of the lower court's column's.
Finish your visit to this amazing park at the small on-site house, which Gaudí once-occupied for a short stay. The house has been transformed into a museum, including a variety of furniture created by this genius craftsman.

Just joined the tour, tour guide's spanish accent was too strong, could only understand 50% or less of what he spoke about. Tour of Gaudi's main site was only like 45 minutes.More

Looking at the buildings and fitment designed by Gaudi is so amazing and unique, full of fantastic colours and shapes, elegant structure with smooth lines. Gaudi is credited with great impact on the image of Barcelona. I like them, Casa Calvet and the Casa Mila.More

I do not know for sure, but I imagine that if you keep your ticket/voucher that would be enough.
