About
The quirky colorful mosaics and undulating curves of Park Güell are a signature of the legendary Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, who designed many of the features in this park. Officially opened in 1926 and initially planned as a district for the rich, it is now one of the city's most popular attractions and a great representation of Catalan modernism. The entrance with two fairytale-like houses and the iconic salamander fountain are the most busy. Tickets are required to enter the park.

Top ways to experience Parc Guell
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.

    A Special Place
    This is a wonderful place. Just seeing the mosaics is worth a visit. It was quite busy especially the area where the mosaic stone bench area is. The Gaudi House Museum was an additional charge but well worth it. The furniture, the rooms, all of it very interesting. I think we paid $9.75 US for both senior tickets. There is quite a bit of walking so be prepared for that. Sumer is a lot hotter than March so suncreen, hats etc. will come in handy. Views are great from so many vantage points. We feel this is a must do while visiting Barcelona.

    Very interesting park
    Very interesting park but be prepared. Lots of uphill climbing on cobblestones. Felt a little like a mountain goat. Beautiful views of Barcelona. Interesting Gaudi houses built on property.

    Good but not worth paying for
    Would be more if you didn’t have to book tickets for this. It is a really nice park with lots to see and good views above the city but honestly I am not sure why they charge you money to visit here? You could walk halfway up the hill towards the park and get just as good views for free!! I would only suggest paying for this is you are really really passionate about seeing Gaudi’s work. It’s quite a trek up to the park too but you can get a bus :)

    Beautiful park, but not a must see in my opinion.
    The park itself is lovely. The mosiacs were beautiful. If you decide to go, book ahead. We arrived at 11:10 for our 11:30 reservation and they were advertising that ticket sales were closed. I'm not sure if that was for the day or just until space freed up as peopel left. There wasn't a ton of things to see and the areas with mosiacs were mobbed with people. It's a nice place to visit if you have time and a nice park to walk around, but it wouldn't be at the top of my list of must sees. We took a taxi from the La Ramblas area and paid about 10 Euros to get there.

    Wonderful Park
    Beautiful park! We bought timed tickets for 9:30am (earliest) and were glad we did. It was not too crowded, but we were certainly not the only ones there. One thing I was a bit confused by is that you have to kind of go in a certain order - we had tried to rush down to see the dragon before it got crowded, but then couldn't walk backwards to see another point and instead had to walk all the way around. So - anyway, I guess be prepared for that or instead go ahead and walk through the whole thing order. The terrace was beautiful, great views, beautiful mosaics. Really enjoyed our time here.

    Beautiful!
    Wonderful park, the mosaics are beautiful and there is lots of nature and art. Lots of vendors selling items like jewelry and sorts. Just a warning if you’re going in summer it will be very hot and busy

    The walk up was worth it!
    We very much enjoyed our visit. We started via Baixada de la Gloria. (Unfortunately it looked like the escalators are all under renovation). The park is amazing, we took lunch for a picnic and enjoyed many of the areas. Of course my highlight was the viewing platform and beautiful mosaics.

    A fun visit!
    We visited as part of a tour booked through GoCity card. Definitely worth a visit but it is pretty far away from the other tourist areas of the city. Also it is quite an uphill climb if you take the metro (but there are some escalators along the way).

    Fun experience
    Amazing place … confusing to stay on track but matches the creator’s personality. Large enough that you can find spots away from the masses. You can stay as little or as long as you wish. Unusual & fun I really enjoyed my time wandering the paths

    Nice views but nothing too exciting.
    It seemed that everyone talked about this park however, I was underwhelmed. First off, if you take the Hop On Hop Off bus tour to get to the park, keep in mind you have quite a walk up to the entrance from the drop off point and it is a pretty steep hill! Also, there is lots of walking throughout the park so comfortable shoes are a must. With that being said, the views from the top are breathtaking! Definitely worth it for the views alone. In general, the park was beautiful and a nice trip. If I were to do it again though, I would not have gone later in the day due to all the walking. We had already done so much throughout the day that we were beat simply from the journey to get up to the park from the bus stop.

Nothing need be added to what has already been said about this park.
I advise getting off the metro at Vallcarca.
Walk downhill from there and turn left at Baxaido de la Gloria. There should be an escalator there but it was being renovated. Normally this would take you all the way to the top.
The walk up beside it is pretty brutal if you have joint issues.
Alternatively, do the brutal all up besides the escalator.
Turn right on

It is exactly what the name suggests: a big park. There you can admire some buildings from Antoni Gaudi, and walk in a beautiful environment. What I found the most fascinating about this park is its story. I suggest you book a tour with a guide if you want to learn a bit more about this place. The tour was almost an hour and then we could walk around by ourselves for as long as we wanted.

As it can get really hot and the park is in an uphill, I recommend that you visit it as early as possible and have water with you.

We had a small issue finding the correct entrance. Somehow we ended up at an entrance to local residents only. The park employee was extremely rude and also refused to give us the correct directions to the public entrance. The neighbourhood we walked through (from the metro) did not distinguish btwn public entrance and local only. This made us a bit late for our entry time. Again, employees quite rude when we found our “tourist” entrance.

The actual attraction was beautiful. And intriguing but make sure you get the right entrance!

If you interested in different architecture showcase this is great place to go. Beautiful views from various points in park. Something different just around the corner. Buy tix early. Limited attendance. Lots of photo opportunities.

If you are a Gaudi enthusiast then you will want to take in Parc Guell. If you enjoy nature, it is also great to see the beautiful garden, magnificent structures and panoramic views of the city and ocean. If you only have a short time in Barcelona, you may want to take in some of the other amazing attractions and save this for second or third day

Well we didn’t have a guide so maybe we missed something about the place because of that, but after a 15 euro taxi ride we arrived to a park with very steep inclines and steep steps everywhere. It was very hot and to me it was too much as I have problems with my knees. I hadn’t read anything about how steep it was and so was caught unaware, we just saw mainly trees and a very few Gaudi things. From the advertising pictures you think there will be loads of it. Anyway I hated it. But lots of others love it so I am maybe in the minority, but beware if you have walking issues.

My husband and I went on a guided tour. So worth a visit. Gaudi’s architecture is amazing. Sadly we couldn’t enter what was Gaudi’s house due to an event being set up. It also meant our tour was 60 and not 90 minutes as stated.

If you buy a ticket for the hop on and hop off tour bus, Parc Quell is one of the stops.

Interesting Gaudi work at the bottom of the park and some lovely bridge/arches.
80% of the park is just pretty ordinary though (for a more relaxing park experience definitely go to Parc de la Cuitadella)
Some fantastic views over Barcelona but the understandable large volume of crowds make them hard to enjoy

We've just returned from our first trip to Barcelona and Park Guell was on our to-do list. We booked general admission tickets in advance via the official website. Ideally we wanted a guided tour but it was sold out. We used the hop on hop off bus to get there as it is out of the city centre, be aware it is a 10-15 min walk from the bus stop to the park. Luckily they allow you to enter up to 30 mins after your allocated time as our bus broke down so we were running late. The downside to the park is that there aren't a lot of signs so it is difficult to navigate around and you end up just walking round hoping you've seen everything. Its a big park so lots of walking. You get great views over the city. The architecture is beautiful and worth seeing. Do it the same day as la sagrada familia as they are near each other
