Owner description: Park Guell is one of the masterpieces of the catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, who projected it in 1900. Inaugurated as a public park in 1926, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, reconizing its patrimonial and cultural value as a symbol of modern architecture, being one of the biggest exponents of Gaudi's modernism. This playful urban park, the work of architect Antoni Gaudi, features peaceful greens, winding paths and many sculptures and mosaics designed by Gaudi himself.

Apparently we entered from the wrong entrance point to the park since there were no ticket booths selling time slotted tickets to the restricted area with Gaudi outdoor works. There were no signs to indicate that such a system exists, so we learned this only when hitting the ticket checking point way later. After returning from the middle of the... More

I didn't expect to pay into this sight so I think my experience was a little 'is that all?' Don't get me wrong, the structures and design of the area is beautiful but I don't think you should pay in to it. The view of the city is superb from the park

We loved this park, with it's great views of the city & you can visit this for free. We paid to go into see the modernistic buildings and really enjoyed it, thought it was good value. If you're going to do this then book ahead as they only allow so many people in at a time.

It's a nice walk from the center of town, so you can see a different part of the city and another side to Gaudi, besides the fantastic La Sagrada Familia. A pleasant way to spend an afternoon and to appreciate the planning and thoughtfulness of the landscape design. Worth the trip!

Although there is a lot of walking involved to see this attraction, it is worth it. The park is on a mountain, so when you finally reach the highest point you can see the whole of Barcelona, nice views. There is plenty to see and admire in the park, some parts are free and some incur a charge. There are... More

I'd been before when it was free - a lovely place with brilliant views o the City. But now it's 5 euros for this, 8 euros for that and you can't just wander anywhere. It sort of takes the pleasure off a lovely place - you can;t even see the Gaudi outdoor sculptures from the gates without paying to get... More

Park Guell is a fine place to visit, especially if you like mosaics and Gaudi. The view of the Mediterranean was a surprise. We bought our tickets at the tourism office so we did not have to stand in line at the ticket office at Park Guell -- this was a good idea. When we got to the area with... More

It was just lovely. We were so happy we'd stumbled across this on our map. We hadn't ever planned to go here, but it turned out to be one of our best days in the city. For more info and pics see link: http://laurabrighton.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/park-guell.html

One of the best park I ever seen.It was built by ANTONIO GAUDI as a request coming from GUELL,the steel magnat.Guell asked GAUDI to build himself a house in the center of the park,and GAUDI build the house.The park has the same print,the same touch like SAGRADA FAMILIA,it is another masterpiece of GAUDI'S.You can visit even the GAUDI'S house.

This is one unique Park. Nature, design, art, you will find it there. Every building and object you see has an intricate design, such a beautiful place. on the downside, it can get busy
