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.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Tons of people but thats expected as the park is free, and its beautiful! The scenery is just magnificent, lots of greenery and it has a beautiful view of Barcelona. The mosaic tiles and colors are so unique and beautiful, it really creates a magical atmosphere.

Best way to access the park is taking the metro to Vallcarca and entering from the back. Getting to Park Guell can be quite hilly, but by following the signs from the Vallcarca metro there are escalators going up to the park. You still have to walk a bit, but it really helps a lot!

“Lovely park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Worth the climb but go early to avoid the crowds. Beautiful park on the outskirts of Barcelona. Fun walking through some of the the small towns approaching the park...genuine Spanish feel without the tourists.

“Glorious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Take the metro and take in the wonderful mirador overlooking a grand part of Barcelona, before walking down the steps and into the park, past the house where Gaudi lived for a while. A wonderworld of twisted and almost living stone, wild imagination and colourful mosaics.

“Another Gaudi masterpiece”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

It would be a great park without all of the artwork. Great view, beautiful grounds. Skip the Gaudi house

“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Push past the crowds at the front and take walkways leading to shaded nooks where musicians play for donations. That's where we found the magic.
