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.

    Absolutely beautiful inner core of a large well looked after park. Bargain price for entry and I recommend buying water from the guys in the outer park as it's cheaper and usually frozen so cooler than the water from from the cafe. Expect hills getting to Park, but once you are there you are more rewarded for your effort. If you like gaudi and want to learn a bit more about him I can also recommend the museum house just outside the core. Enjoy looking at beautiful things? It's worth it. Love art and architecture? It's an absolute steal!

    Went with my girlfriend. Lovely place, beautiful architecture and flower gardens, a lot smaller than I expected, thought I'd spend 3 hours there but we only spent an hour and half there. something to note as well is once you're in the monumental core (paid section) you can go into the free section but they won't let you back into the monumental core so you have to do one at a time. There was no queue (it was quarter to 10 in the morning). And there's a nice souvenir shop across the road from the main exit which is worth a visit.

    What a truly inspiring place, could spend hours here.. if you visit ensure you come on a nice day with no rain or clouds, the beauty is enhanced by sunlight. Many levels to explore so don't rush your time here if you like architecture or design... The concept is just out of this world and executed so amazingly!

    This place definitely deserve more time!! I loved every minute being here and would have loved to have more time to enjoy it. It’s so beautiful, the architecture is so unique yet it fits so beautifully with the surrounding nature. Definitely do the tour. It’s short but worth it. We had a great tour guide that taught us a lot. Really enjoyed our visit. But be careful of which entrance you go to if you are doing the tour. We checked with someone at our hotel and ended up at the wrong entrance. The staff was amazing to make sure we end up back with the group.

    One of the "must see" attractions in Barcelona. The hike up the hill from the metro is a challenge. Some may want to take a taxi to the park from the Metro. It is only around 6Euro. If using a taxi, I recommend using one of the side entrances especially if you plan to climb to the top of the park. This will get you about halfway up the hill. The main attractions we're being refurbished in June of 2018. They were charging over 10 Euros to access the most popular parts of the park. I have visited for free in the past so this was very frustrating.

    I heard it's pretty good but when we arrive there they said no more tickets until 6 hours later. We just didn't have the time to wait around being tourists and having things to do. If you call them up and they say oh no problem getting tickets that would be a good sign to buy tickets when you're going to be there. As we called weeks ahead in the person on the phone said not to worry there's always plenty of tickets.

    This place is AMAZING! lots and lots of stairs and walking but everything is picture taking worthy. The park is FREE but there is an area that you need to pay a fee for. I recommend buying them online because although you can buy tickets in person at the park you might not get the time you want. It’s very popular. It was very fun and highly recommend.

    It is a beautiful place but I wish it was more organized. I have been on the park for over 2 hours to just find out that the place where my daughter wants to take the pictures you must pay to get inside. The visit to the monumental park cost 8.50 euros and now I must wait 3 hours to get inside. If someone would have told us as soon as we got inside the park I would have bought the ticket first then do the free part of the park. Also bring toilet tissue they have too many visitors and some stools had none. Be prepared for a lot of walking.

    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.
