The best way to get there is by the green line L3 metro, getting off at Vallcarca. There is clear direction at the metro exit, guiding you to a series of escalators that takes you to the upper part of the Park. From there you can take a pleasant walk downhill, through the Porticos, Nature Square and gardens, and leave... More

Fantastic restoration on this building - once you get upstairs into the house you really get to see how amazing Gaudi was - and how great it was that some one like Guell supported his vision

I loved exploring this park. It was exactly what I'd imagined when I planned on visiting here. It was colourful, and the way that everything flowed together, with the architecture was just amazing. I am still in awe, 3 days later, at how beautiful the park was, with the coloured tiles, and the flowing and curving lines of all the... More

I came across the palau Guell on my last visit to Barcelona about 12 years ago and made my way back this time. The building has undergone some its straight out of Batmans Gotham city whoever created the set for Batmans house must have been a fan of Gaudi . Amazing

It is a nice park set at the top of the mountain with a great view of the city. When we were there there was a queue for tickets to explore the 'house/museum' and there were designated timeslots for people to enter to basically take photos of a better view of the city below. Overall good place to spend some... More

We must have spent at least 1/12 hours walking around. Gaudi's imagination is incredible. The amount of thought and effort and craftsmanship that went into building this house is breathtaking. Well worth the 12 Euros entrance and that includes the electronic tour guide.

So, I can honestly say I was a little disappointed by Park Guell. It gives great views of the city but it doesn't have the "it" factor that some of the photos made it look like. The actual colored facade you see in the pictures is the building (not very large at that). The rest of the place is just... More

This is the first architecture of the great Antoni Gaudi. Actually a palace for a rich businessmen, designed by Gaudi, after more than 125 years still the beauty of the palace mesmerising everyone! I already visited most of the Gaudi's great architectural masterpieces all over Barcelona, including Sagrada familia, la pedrera, park guell, casa batllo, most of the designs some... More

Its a bit of an uphill walk from the tourist bus to the entrance but worth it. Cost 8 euros to get into the monuments bit but the park itself is free. We got there about midday and had to wait an hour to get to see the Gaudi section but it was worth it - once you had fought... More
