Parc Guell, Barcelona: Address, Phone Number, Parc Guell Reviews: 4/5

About
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. We recommend the following options for ensuring that you arrive on time at the Park Guell Monument Precinct: - Metro (green line, get off at Lesseps or Vallcarca). When you leave the station, you’ll have a walk of about 20-25 minutes. - City bus (lines H6 and 32). When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 15 minutes. - City bus (lines 92 and 24). When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 5 minutes. - Barcelona City Tour and Bus Turistic. When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 10 minutes. - Taxi to Park Guell

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.

Really cool park to explore!
Oct 2021 • Couples
We went in combo with seeing Sagrada Familia and it made for an inspiring morning! The park is huge and really unique so give yourself at least two hours. Also it costs money, so buy your tickets online in advance if you don’t have good cell service and a smart phone To do it on the spot.

It’s a beautiful park with even more beautiful views of Barcelona. I got there in the morning and walked all around. Stunning views of the city.

Whimsy at its best
Oct 2021
Gaudi built a beautiful park with minimal workers in several years.
What one may not know is that is is based on nature; outstading.

Worth the walk up the hill
Oct 2021 • Couples
We did this on the same day as seeing the Sagrada Familia taking a nice long walk thru the streets stopping for lunch and then walking the rest up the hill, which could be done by taxi or bus.
We had ordered online and arrived slightly early and had no trouble getting in.
Upon entering we saw some of walls up above and heard music and investigated , where we found a guitarist and a person doing some flamingo actions - it added to the ambience.
The park is delightful with a lot of Gaudi influence throughout and also some great views of the city.
Take your time and enjoy and then get the bus back you deserve it!

A wonderful park with the Monumental zone (the work of Gaudi) and the landscape part. Definitely one of my TOP in Barcelona!

Couldn’t get in
Oct 2021
Be aware …. we tried to go at about 4 to the free area only to find out there is no free area after COVID. Our day schedule got derailed by a late start and a badly soiled baby. Might be common knowledge to many, but I swear, I did not see anything while researching that said this. If you want to get in late in afternoon, get tix beforehand.

Unique dream come true a hundred years ago. Rally nice walk through the park with spectacular views and architecture. Better map with recommended walking route would have been nice.

Like a trip, man
Sep 2021
Admission was inefficient - by machine only - until after about 45 minutes in the broiling sun, staff opened up a manned ticket desk AND informed the queue that they could buy tickets online. Abracadabra - q disappeared. Maybe start with that, in future!
Anyway....the park is magnificent. Gaudi was either mad or on drugs. His designs are so off-the-wall, it's hard to imagine any other explanation. But they are wonderful.

Fascinating and a Wonderful Walk
Sep 2021
Parc Guell is unlike anything you'll see anywhere - Gaudi was truly a genius. First of all, it's set on the City's high ground so the views are amazing. Then the landscape design, architecture and conception of the place captivates you. I recommend getting a guide to help explain Parc Guell to you - to really understand what Gaudi was trying to accomplish makes the visit all the more memorable.

Be aware of pickpockets
Oct 2021
We saw several people that looked like they were there to steal..., they should have more security inside, after all they're charging 10 euros to enter a park!
