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.

    Not worth it
    If you don’t have a lot of time in Barcelona, skip it and see other things instead. It’s a trek to get here and there isn’t as much to see as I thought there would be. Lots of walking around on paths uphill. Soooo many people. Also people trying to sell you things. It feels hectic and not worth the time and hassle.

    Recommend
    This park is truly inspiring and extremely beautiful. However, it is difficult to get to as it is located at the top of a mountain. Requires a lot of walking. You do not have to book in advanced, as you can purchase tickets at the entrance. I would not recommend paying for a tour as it simply a waste of money. History of the park can be found online and it is easy to walk around and finishing all the different site points. Overall recommend especially for those who are a fan of Gaudi’s art or architectural art overall.

    Fanciful Genius
    The sheer imagination of Gaudi was our first impression as we entered the park. It was definitely worth going with a tour guide to the park as he was able to give details that added to the experience. I liken Gaudi to Frank Lloyd Wright in that he brings nature into his designs. Definitely avoid on the weekend if possible as it's a popular spot.

    Quite a climb but nice Gaudi works
    As someone who doesn't like walking this was difficult to get through as it was on an incline (choose your entrance carefully). The main park attractions of Gaudi's works (houses and salamander) can all be found in one place, so the rest of the park has less to really navigate. The roads are quite crowded with tourists and hawkers. Nevertheless, the stone designs and colourful architecture was very nice to look at, and you could really appreciate Gaudi's creativity. There are nice spots to enjoy the scenery. Overall, this park is quite different from what I'm used to but the designs were lovely.

    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

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

The park is beautiful but over crowded. Not sure it's worth the money to be honest. Glad that it is ticketed otherwise I can only imagine how large the crowds would be. Everyone crowds around the main part for their Instagram posts. If yoy get to see the art theough all the tiktokers then ita actually nice. The paths away from the main area are lovely with great views of Barcelona. I think the buskers spoil it though as it would be a nice place to walk around in peace and not have jazz players or violin players at every corner. Didn't think it deserves all the hype if I'm honest.

This is really not worth a visit. The least interesting item I saw during my 4 days in Barcelona. Apparently it is Barcelona’s second most visited tourist attraction, clearly thanks to good marketing and YouTube influencers with too much time on their hands.

I have visited many parks in different countries. This does not work for me. It is way too crowded to enjoy in a relaxed manner. As a destination for architect and art lovers, it is not so great that it is worth a special trip. I don’t know where this obsession with everything Gaudi comes from. I suggest just visiting the Sagrada Familia, and after that, anything else of his that you see is going to be a major disappointment

Tomato tomato tomato!! This park was over-hyped in my opinion. Quite crowded and there really isn’t much to see. Tons of walking.
