We paid for the restricted area entry and felt cheated. Booking online incur additional fee (thought we could skip the queue by doing so but if you enter from the side entrance, the queue is almost none - in January!). We could see much more from the free park area (higher and better views), and can view the walkway (with... More

Beautiful park but the lines are very long. We visited the park next to it which was free, just a fee to enter the house that Gaudi lived in. The park itself was beautiful!

Outrageously expensive to see just one small part of the park. They make it nearly impossible to cross in and out of the "monumental area" so you just feel trapped. Crowds of people jammed in trying to see the area because they can't spread out. Not worth the price of admission. Many seem to be trying to destroy the joy... More

If you like Gaudi, do not miss this place. Great tour well worth the time. Antonio Gaudi is truly amazing and so much a part of what Barcelona is all about.

Lovely afternoon to chill out in a lovely landscape Really loved the setting and atmosphere, the grounds were so pretty, loved just walking around for hours. Easily accessible by most people and definitely worth the trip to the outskirts of Barcelona.

These buildings from Antonio Gaudi are beautifull. The style is very recognizable and gives you a feeling of creativity and peace of mind at the same time. Also great views on the city and sea!

Guadi at his best. You can visit his creation of the guards house as well as all the other buildings It is quite a long way from main city centre but easily reached by public transport or taxis.

there is a reason this park is one of Barcelona's main attractions and even during low season, the wait to get in can be long. First off, you can take a walk around the park, just outside the area with the Gaudi arcitecture ( no entrance fee for this part) where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Barcelona atop the...

A failed subdivision development, Park Guell (and its visionary) was a development way too advanced for its time.
