About
The quirky colorful mosaics and undulating curves of Park Güell are a signature of the legendary Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, who designed many of the features in this park. Officially opened in 1926 and initially planned as a district for the rich, it is now one of the city's most popular attractions and a great representation of Catalan modernism. The entrance with two fairytale-like houses and the iconic salamander fountain are the most busy. Tickets are required to enter the park.

Top ways to experience Parc Guell
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.

    Must visit
    I highly recommend visiting Gaudi Park if you're in Barcelona. It's a unique and enchanting attraction that offers something for everyone. Whether you're a fan of architecture, art, or just want to enjoy some peace and quiet in the midst of a bustling city, Gaudi Park is a must-see destination.

    Genius Gaudi!
    We walked up to the park from where we were staying and disappointingly the staff at the entrance said it was sold out for the day, we were surprised as didn't think we would need to pre-book and it was still quite early in the morning. That evening after doing something else for the day we pre-booked online to go another day in the week. We had a great day overall when we did eventually go, you can walk round the different trails for ages looking at the different buildings and points on the map. Be aware that you have to pay extra to go into Gaudi house at the parks centre which we did pay, however felt it was a bit of a rip off not including this in the normal ticket which is already quite expensive. The good points of the park do out weigh the bad though and makes a good day out in the sun.

    Must do but prebook
    This is a great place to go and see with fabulous views over the city and beautiful sights within it. You must prebook to be sure of getting in and I would do a few days in advance. You will get a time allocated as they try to limit numbers in the park at any one time but we were able to go in about 40min early so I suspect they give some leeway depending on numbers in the park. To get the best views you do need to ascend a fair amount so lots of steps and inclines on the path. The number 116 bus stops right outside the park whereas many other routes involve a steep walk before you arrive.

    Morning Visit to Parc Guell
    Tip: Visit Parc Guell in the morning for lesser crowd. Bring water, cap or anything that can help you with the weather (depends on the season). We got the skip the line ticket with a guided tour. It can take about 2 hours at a minimum. There are some slight uphill and rough climbs so make sure to wear your comfiest shoes. The place is so interesting so I suggest you get the guided tour.

    Get official tix in advance, go early
    Wonderful mosaics by Gaudi. Don't miss. But buy official tix online in advance and get there when it opens. By noon it is packed. Head straight to the main part before it gets crowded, then leisurely see the rest. From Metro it is a steep climb of stairs for about 5 blocks. If you have trouble with that take a taxi.

    Worth the visit.
    Stunning colours. Fantastic mosaics. Well worth seeing. However book your tickets. We went on a hop on hop off bus. Climbed a hill. Exhausted at top to be told no entry, tickets sold out. Bought tickets, returned the following day taking no.24 bus. It goes right up the hill, perfect. Very, very busy. Just go with the flow. Expensive to eat at cafe. Salmon bagel over 8euros. Easy walk downwards to catch return 24bus. Tickets for bus bought at metro. One journey 2.40euros. Be prepared inspectors do board bus to check tickets.

    Great day out
    Great place to visit when I Barcelona. We had a wonderful time seeing all the different structures. If walking be prepared for the uphill walk possibly not for the faint hearted but worth it nevertheless. A well thought out area with differing parts. A good view over Barcelona once in Parc Guell.

    Worth it for the views.
    Interesting place to stroll around and see the Gaudi buildings and the views to the sea over the City are worth the entrance fee alone. I imagine in summer it gets very crowded. Not really anywhere to have a drink let alone eat so don't expect to be able to have lunch there.

    Looked cool, but couldn't get tickets
    Looked very cool, but be sure to buy your tickets 1-2 weeks ahead!! If you aren't able to do that, try to go on a weekday RIGHT when they open to snag any extra tickets. We got there 30 minutes after they opened and they had sold their last tickets. There is no longer a free area to walk around (I had read this online, but it is not still applicable information).

    Nice park visit.
    Park Güell is very nice as such, a fresh breeze and opportunity to enjoy art in nature. In May theres a lot of blooming in the perk. To consider, buy tickets in advance to be sure of having access. Consider also limited # of restrooms, some closed - queus...

We visited here on a Barcelona panoramic tour, and I had no idea this place even existed. What a tremendous find. It's worth taking a guided tour here to learn the fascinating history and to learn about meanings behind the beautiful elements of the park. Plus admission is limited for crowd control and a tour will ensure you can get in.

I've wanted to visit Parc Guell since seeing photos of it from my daughter's semester abroad over a decade ago, so it was a defintie bucket list item on this trip. From the Passeig de Gracia Metro statin we took Line 4 to the Anton X stop, and connected to Bus Guell, which carried us to the entrance of the park area of Parc Guell (7 Euros per person senior admission, including Bus Guell), originally developed by Gaudi as an upscale housing development (1900-1914). We were glad that we had purchased our tickets several weeks before as we heard that they were sold out for the day of our visit.
The walk through the nature trails was refreshing and allowed us glimpses of Gaudi’s incorporation of natural forms in his architecture. We arrived in plenty of time for our 9:30 admission to the Monumental Zone and were transfixed by Gaudi’s colorful whimsy. Having seen many photos of the tile-decorated benches undulating long the edge of the terrace, we were disappointed to find that most of them were blocked off for restoration. A few sections were open, however, and we waited our turn to take photos sitting on the benches with the skyline of Barcelona in the distance. We were equally captivated by the colorfully decorated Hall of 100 Columns, the stairway and fountains, the famous ceramic dragon often used as a symbol of Parc Guell, and the gingerbread lodges near the main entrance. We wound our way back up to the terrace and through the nature trails to the exit, where we caught Bus Guell back to the Alfons X Metro station and returned to the metro station near our hotel,

We purchased tickets online, rode the HopOnHopOff bus to the Parc Güell stop, used google maps to find the way up to the park entrance ( about a 10 minute walk) then started wandering around the beautiful park. It’s free to enter but you must have tickets to visit the Monument Zone. The ticket booth is right at the entrance. There were musicians playing in the hills, artisans selling wares around the paths and plenty of benches to sit at and see downtown Barcelona. Our tickets were for 1:30 but because of the Coronavirus, there were no crowds and we entered the paid area at noon. We were given a map of the Zone and really loved all of Gaudis work here. Very peaceful throughout the park but a security guard said this is not the norm.

If you intend taking teens I suggest they are well fed n rested and actually have some interest in seeing Parc Guell.....the outer area is free and the views/layout are beautiful. The area needing a ticket for access is stunning but not huge and does not really take too long to navigate. I would suggest the late entry - after 5pm which is considerably cheaper and still offers plenty of time.

Park Guell is a public park designed by Antoni Guadi (the same architect who designed La Sagrada Familia). While most of the park is free to visit, there is a pay-to-visit section (€10 fee) to aid its restoration. Being located in a steep hill, the park offers fantastic views of the city. Guadi has used stones and ceramics to create interesting sculptures and mosaics. Locals visit here for hiking or dog-walking. Try visiting during evening to catch a sunset, or during opening hours to beat the crowds. There is a Gaudi museum (€5 fee) near the entrance. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this park is a peaceful place to visit when its not crowded.

Although the free area is quite pleasant, the restricted area is a tourist trap if I ever saw one. After queuing and paying €10, you come into a tiny portion of the park, which is under construction and does not look good. All is a blur of frenetic tourists and selfie sticks. You just want to get out of there as soon as you can. Overall, a waste of time and money.

I wasn't sure how to rate this, as obviously the site itself is spectacular, the location is stunning and the views are to die for. The Gaudi architecture is fascinating, our kids loved it, it's like a fantasy land. We stopped for coffee and snacks at the café down near the gate lodges and the staff there were fabulous, efficient, lively. The Bus Guell was a great way to get there and back from Alfons X metro, absolutely no hassle, no queue, no waiting around; we arrived about 15 mins early for our ticketed time but were allowed to enter the ticketed area right away, very friendly welcoming staff. What takes it down a notch is that it is far too busy, in some areas you could hardly move. In addition to that, the place is full of people taking selfies and photos for Instagram, walking backwards, trying umpteen times for the perfect shot during which time they expect you to wait before walking by, stopping in the middle of the path to touch up make up so they are picture perfect, hanging off and sitting on the various decorative columns and ornamental features. They are totally in the way and not interested in capturing memories, only in how many likes and follows they will get, presumably in some cases for commercial purposes. We found it quite depressing and it made us reflect more on our trip to Athens earlier this year. At most major sites there you're not allowed to take selfies, take photos of people next to statues and other artefacts, or pose for photos. This is strictly enforced by people with whistles and at the time we thought it was a bit OTT but our experience here made us revise that, something needs to be done so that people can still take photos to enjoy their holiday memories without affecting the enjoyment of others. Overall though this is a must-visit especially if it's your first time in Barcelona (we'd been before but the kids haven't) and it was lovely to be outdoors taking in the views on a glorious sunny day.

We visited Parc Guell in November while we were on vacation in Barcelona. We booked the tickets online since we did not want to lose any time waiting in the long lines. The ticket price was 10 euro and it included a bus ride from Urquinaona to the Parc and back. Basically when we got there we did not know where to go since there was just a long line of people waiting to get their tickets and there was no one to help and guide us5. Basically Parc Guell is a very big park but the most of it is under construction. You can actually visit the park for free but if you want to go to a certain point where you can see the view and take some pictures you will need to pay the extra 10 euros. With that in mind, I would say that it may be very beautiful and will definitely worth a visit when the construction is fully done but for the moment it is for sure a touristic attraction. Plus,we visited the only cafe inside the park with absolutely ridiculous prices (11 euro for a piece of pizza and a double espresso).

There is a lot to see in the park. The free areas have nice gardens, walkways, arcades and aquaducts. The pay areas have Gaudi's fanciful designs that make it look like a fairy wonderland. It's nice to come in the morning when it is less crowded to be able to appreciate the place at leisure.

We visited in January, but it was still very crowded, which I think it could be normal for this kind of place. Anyway, you should buy your tickets online so that you can have you ride from AlfonsX also included, via bus, which drops you off at the entrance. There were a lot of working in progress signs and closed areas so maybe in summertime will be more nice than what we saw.
