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. 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

We took the number 24 bus that practically went past our hotel and dropped us at the back of the park and though it took 35mins gave us a great view of the city and only cost 1 stamp each on our T10 about 1 euro! We then spent a couple of hours wandering around the park and loved it.

As this was our second visit to the park, we decided not to use the escalator approach which takes you to the side of the park. There are basically four approaches to the park, if you are using a metro (you can of course take Bus 24 - and others - instead):

1. Take metro to the Lesseps metro station and follow the signs to walk less than a mile, to reach the main entrance to the Park. You get to see the main highlights including the famous dragon at the entrance but the downside is you need to walk uphill a lot if you want to explore the park fully.

2. Take metro to the same metro station but look out for a left turn on the main road (Travessera de Dalt) to Avinguda del santuari de sant Josep de la muntanya (Av S St J Muntanya). There are no proper signs to the park on this road. After a short climb you get to the escalators and these take you to the higher part of the park. You can then slowly descend to the other parts of the park though the walk to the central areas is much longer.

3. The third approach is from the Vallcarca metro station: see http://tinyurl.com/3z2n4rl.

4. The fourth approach is mentioned here: http://blog.orangemonkeytours.com/en/2011/02/15/wat-is-de-beste-route-naar-park-guell/ but we did not get to test it first hand.

Do remember to wear good walking shoes and be prepared to walk.

The park itself is beautiful, and the views of the city from Park Guell are amazing! It's easy to get to, take the metro to Lesseps (or even better, walk there from Diagonal, passing through Gracia/Sant Gervasi) and walk up or take the escalator.

We had a wonderful afternoon walking around Parc Guell. It has got many different areas so don't just stick to the bottom area near the Hansel and Gretel houses, it is worth walking around the viaducts and finding the rock with the cross at the peak. Lots of men selling slightly dodgy gear on cloths, and also- more helpfully- bottles of water. Be warned it is a proper trek to either of the metro stations.
