Skip the Line: Park Guell Admission Ticket

245 reviews
Admission tickets for Park Güell, one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, typically sell out quickly; however, by buying tickets online in advance, you can guarantee entry, avoid the long lines, and save time on the day. Instead of queueing in the heat, explore Park Güell—including the Dragon Staircase, Hypostyle Room, and more—at your own pace.

What a wonderful time I spent with Martin learning about Mosaic. Lovely, talented artist and patient man. I would have loved to have spent longer, had I the time to do so, Would go back in a flash. Am sorry it has taken a while to catch up on all my reviews but highly recommend this activity. Have since purchased my tools and first supply of tiles. Ready to go come summer in the garden.

Just as a mosaic is made of many different pieces, so are the vacations I tend to like best. Vacations that incorporate history, geography, art, museums, churches, architecture, local foods, local music, etc. can start to blend into one another, but I find taking a local class is memorable and cements that memory to the location. (Think cooking school in Marrakesh, Sailing lessons in Greek Islands, meditating in Cambodia, you get the idea) We were THRILLED with our mosaic class. PRE-CLASS Martin is fluent in English so made arrangements a snap. We had an unexpected change to our trip & appreciated how Martin was both gracious & flexible to accommodate that schedule change. THE ENVIRONMENT The workshop is held in what appears to be Martin's apartment, which is GORGEOUS and filled with character!!! Imagine great music, beautiful light streaming in, intricate and beautiful mosaics on the wall, huge windows, gorgeous arched double-doors and YOU CREATING YOUR ART!!! THE CLASS I read the other reviewers, and think it's fair to say that the instruction is limited in terms of "formal instruction" but that means your time is instead devoted to creating the mosaic art. Also Martin doesn't leave your side, so he will answer EVERY question you have, and give you practical pinpointed advice on everything from choice of subject, to color tiles selected, to shape of tiles used, etc. In other words he tries to help you with technique in the moment. For me, with just 5 days in Barcelona I wasn't up for devoting an entire vacation day to the mosaic class, but a 3 hour window was just perfect. It also gave us better appreciation for what Gaudi must have done back in the day!! it's time consuming!! My husband and I were really THRILLED with the experience, the instruction, the support Martin gave throughout, and the finished product. Such a memorable experience in Barcelona, and MY SUGGESTION: ENTER THE CLASS with an idea of what you want to create - because the quicker you sketch it, the quicker you get to make the mosaic. THANK YOU MARTIN for such a great experience!!!

Martin greeted us warmly and we started to work almost immediately after we discussed the type of project we wanted. He stayed with us the entire time [2 of us] and even helped cut tile to almost guarantee we would finish in the time allotted. We were able to take a lunch break, walking to one of the restuarants he recommended. Since the studio was in his home, we also had the opportunity to see European apartment living.

We decided to take a break from exploring and chose to take a mosaic class as a family. Martin was a gracious host and we all enjoyed creating our works of art. My eldest daughter now wants to mosaic at home, using the materials Martin kindly gifted her. Thank you for sharing your talent Martin and helping to create a lovely memory of our time in Barcelona
