Park Guell is not like any other park, it's a quirky little place in Barcelona. Loved visiting but it's also very VERY crowded.

We went there with a private guide. It is a really interesting place to visit. Guell was a multi-gazillionaire who hired an architect named Gaudi to build a new kind of exclusive neighborhood. It has all these cool architectural designs. It's also a really nice place to walk around. Tip: Enter through the upper gate if you can. It's easier... More

One of Gaudis masterpieces. The architecture was unique. The entrance passage is tiled in wood so that the sound of the horses hooves would be muffled and not disturb the occupants of the house.

No trip to Barcelona is complete without a visit to Park Guell. This beautiful Park highlights the work of Gaudi. I strongly recommend getting tickets to the Park before going. Our guide with Barcelona Day Tours did this for us and gave us an excellent tour of the Park.

when I tried to book a slot online I found it was an unsecured site so I decided to buy tickets at the venue. The downside to this is that I pay one euro more and end up waiting 2 hours to get in. Not worth the wait.

Booked tickets in advance. After taking the escalators up the hill, it notifies you that you are in the park, but it takes some time wandering dusty paths to actually get to the paid portion of the park (much of it is free). by the time we found the official entrance to the park where they accept tickets, it was...

This park is another Gaudi masterpiece. Organic inspired architecture along with magnificent landscaping. Wind your way from top to bottom of the park and dwell on the sheer beauty. The views from the top are not to be missed.This is definitely not to be missed while visiting Barcelona.

One of Gaudi's gems in Barcelona. Nice place to visit if you are lucky with weather. Guide's comments appreciated so this park has complicated story of creation. It was planned as real estate development project for 50 or 60 villas but without success about hundred years ago. So it became wonderful park. The only problem - clouds of people here.... More

Tickets were bought online prior to holiday which made life a lot easier. We got a taxi to drop us of at the top of the park so we could walk down rather than up! If you want to see both the public (free) and private( fee) parts of the Parc and you have bought tickets, then leave plenty of... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
