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.

    Gorgeous views. Wouldn't waste your money buying a ticket as the views are outstanding from all areas in the park. Only two toilets on site free of charge - ladies had no toilet roll in any of them & a WC charging 0.5 euros. Very steep climb with lots of walks take bottles of water and food with you in a bag. Overall fantastic experience! Also there is a few childrens parks spotted about so brilliant for all ages.

    If you're looking for the best views in Barcelona, then this is the place to be. You can see the entirety of the city from this park as well as the surrounding mountains. The park itself is beautiful and well worth getting lost exploring. Highly recommend that you bring water as the hills are steep, but there are plenty of people selling bottles for a Euro

    The free potions of the park are lovely but not very unique, would be very peaceful to have a picnic. To see the Gaudi monuments, you have to purchase entrance to the monumental garden. This is worth seeing, but so packed full of people that it's almost impossible to enjoy. The fountains are nearly impossible to get close to without twenty other people in your photo. Still, worth a visit. Recommendation: do not go at peak times, and pay for the monumental zone to see the unique parts.

    The park is situated at the top of a steep hill, allowing a beautiful sight of the city. We bought tickets to enter the paid area, but be warned, it's not worth it. It's such a small area and this area can be also seen at the front of one the many entrances. We also went at a time when restorations were being done, so we felt cheated out of our money. Nevertheless, the buildings are beautifully designed and it's nice to take a walk through it.

    I am not exited with this park. I have seen a lot of more interesting things around the world. In combination with the extreme hot and humidity of Barcelona I will defenetly not visit this park again in summer. You have to pay a big amount of money to visit all the stuff in the park. In generally I don't know if I would recommend to anyone going there, unless you have a free day and have nothing else to do in Barcelona.

    Absolutely Beautiful! A must visit if traveling to Barcelona. Plan to spend at least an hour. One could easily spend significantly more time walking along the various pathways and trails. Be sure to have a camera handy as the landscape and architecture are among the most beautiful examples in Spain.

    Definitely worth the visit when in Barcelona. This park has some unique architecture and space for you to wander and explore. It took us probably a good 2 hours to walk around the entire park and check out the 2 servants houses near the front. There is a little restaurant that serves refreshments and water (no alcohol) but they are very expensive so my recommendation is you bring your own water when you visit.

    Popular tourist attraction. Art park. It has a museum and pathways for walking tours. Different trees and a view to the city and seaside. Walking around the park is free, entrance to the museum is with a ticket. Musicians play local tunes and there are booths selling snacks. Many guys are also selling cold water on most corners. Some souvenir sellers also. Nice to take a time out and explore the mountain side.

    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.
