Park Guell

Carrer Olot 5, Barcelona

4.5

The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, in Barcelona. The park was built between 1900 and 1914. UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site under "Works of Antoni Gaudí." Park Güell is the reflection of Gaudí's artistic plenitude, which belongs to his naturalist phase. By building this park Gaudi perfected his personal style through inspiration from organic shapes and added creative liberty and an imaginative, ornamental creation, that’s why the park was an object of controversy from the beginning. The site was a rocky hill with little vegetation and few trees before the park was built. Now it is the Gaudi House Museum. Park Güell is designed and composed to bring the peace and calm that one would expect from a park. The buildings flanking the entrance, though very original and remarkable with fantastically shaped roofs with unusual pinnacles.

    The external side of the park is quite nice, you can have a walk and see many different plants, have an interesting point of view on the city and see zone build in Gaudí style. My rate goes to the zone you need to pay for visiting it. It is 8,5€ if you buy the tickets on the spot, 7,5€ online, but still too much to see an area under construction and two small houses. I suggest you to have a walk in the free zone and around the park, you could see those two houses from outside as well and save some money, which in my opinion is the only interest from this city in tourists.

    Loved this place. There are about 3 cordoned sections of the park for which you'd have to pay to get access to. Would highly recommend you buy the tickets online so that you won't struggle to find a place once you get to the park. For those not willing to part ways with the hefty sums of moola, there's also a large section of the park open to the public. The park has lovely hiking trails and is a favourite with dog walkers. Also, you get to see a view of all of Barcelona from up here.

    One of the best places to visit in Barcelona as far as architecture goes. There are a lot of really good photographic opportunities here which I really enjoyed, and the architecture has an earthy and surreal element to it which made it feel other worldly. Really spectacular to see in person. We went at the earliest opportunity. You must buy tickets ahead of time and honour the time they give you. If you get it early, tourists are rather minimal but I’d say even an hour or two after opening that the place fills quite a bit. I believe the numbers are kept to about 400 people at a time, but I’m not sure how much that’s monitored. The less tourists, the better your experience will be.

    Not the kind of thing which comes to your mind when you hear the word "park" (maybe it's cultural). It has some quirky architectural elements though. We forgot to take the ticket to the inner building and could not get in due to the lack of time. So this low rating should be taken with a pinch of salt. A good place to hike a little. Get your pictures with some quirky architectural elements. Have some nice views of the city from a higher ground. Not to miss.

    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.

    We came here a bit late in the afternoon so the part where all the famous pictures are taken, those tickets were sold out. But you know what, that doesn't matter a bit. The part of the park that's free was way nicer!! It's a nice long walk you can just get lost in there, spectacular views of the city. Love love love this place!!! 💕

    Lovely park. Really nice to walk around and enjoy the view of Barcelona. There is a public area that can be entered for free and a small monumental zone that you have to pay tickets for at €7 a ticket which is very pricey and not really worth it. You can get just as good a view from just being in the public area of the park.

    There are two part to the park - one is publicly available and there is 'Monumental Zone' for which you need tickets. Often you need to reserve them few days in advance - so don't count on just showing up, buying a ticket and entering. The park is vast and beautiful, perfect for a stroll. As it's on the hill you also have beautiful panorama over Barcelona. The monumental zone is almost fairly-tale like.
