This place is totally worth a visit although it seems really out of the way. We took the metro then walked uphill all the way, so be prepared. There are escalators for part of the way up to the park so take these since you will need to save your energy for the rest of the way . It was... More

Yes, Gaudi was a revolutionary architect but his ideas were rarely finished, typically bastardised and are difficult to maintain. That said, it's all worth seeing, but is it worth as much as they typically charge? That is a matter of opinion and in my opinion, Park Guell is a bit too much money for the outcome. Whilst quite attractive, it's... More

Park Guell is a relaxing place to see the beautiful buildings, but the park is also nice. Even when its crowded its ok, because its a lot of space. Have a walk, a picnic or just enjoy the nice view. You can see "all" of Barcelona from the top :)

Having been a park guell street musician gives me the privledge to have spent many hours within it´s confines. The visit is a little less pressured than sagrada familia but still it´s wise to plan ahead. The midday during the heat is pretty tough. I found that it will be crowded pretty much from dawn to dusk. I personally loved... More

we didn't book and didn't want to wait 2 hours to enter the fragile area so we went into the park. we still saw the beautiful entrance and decorative roof. we walked up the terraces and took shelter in the shade to eat our lunch amongst the beautiful trees. there were too many pavement stalls reducing the path for visitors....

Each column that supports the paths and roads is different from the other and gives the impression that Gaudi was sitting on the beach making little castles with wet sand dripping through his fingers, every little drop different from the previous one, piling on top of each other. The engineering work is also formidable as is the irregular designs in... More

A nice park to relax a bit. Listen to the parrots and watch them improving their nestings or enjoy the sights of dogs playing with each other while sitting in the sun!

Leaving Barcelona without seeing Guell Park would be a sin, and for good reason. It's an amazing Disneyworld-like landscape of ceramic creatures, swirling towers, and gingerbread houses. Walking around the grounds makes one wonder what the place would have looked like if the real estate development had succeeded as originally conceived! The view of the city and the Mediterranean from... More
