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

This is a beautiful park with stunning views across Barcelona. Gaudi's influence makes it a wonderland and if you enjoy strolling through lush green and unusual architecture then this is the place for you. Wonderful.

The first time I went to Barcelona (10 years ago) I missed out on this stop. This time I made sure my husband and I made the trek. So worth it! We were there in August so there was a ton of people but you can't really avoid that. Definitely bring your own food/snacks. It's kind of far removed and all the food around there is way overpriced.

My friends and I got to Guell Park via the hop-on-hop-off bus and were delighted to learn we could get in for free. We entered the park through iron gates that were undeniably Gaudi-esque--not at all surprised to find a ton of people milling about. We followed the crowd up wide steps that curved around an iconic mosaic lizard and were rewarded by a spectacular view of the city below. A long undulating parapet covered with whimsical mosaics, had lots of seats built in—an invitation for all to tarry. Most tourists ended their visit here; but having time on our hands, we ambled on. Soon, we came upon a collection of magnificent opalescent pillars, topped by a cool wavy ceiling--this space was apparently Gaudi’s idea of a marketplace! We continued on, in high spirits, choosing trails that led to we-knew-not-where, inspired by the beauty of nature around us, just as Gaudi once had been. There were moments when we felt we had the place to ourselves! Tucked within these splendid grounds, was the house of Gaudi—definitely not to be missed. Although a small entrance fee was required, we thought it was well worth it, to sneak a peek at the simple, prayerful life of this unusually gifted and holy man. Guell Park is whatever you make it: a place of curiosities, a place of wonder, a place of prayer, whatever your heart’s desire. It is a treasure that I think belongs to the people of Barcelona and to the world. Be warned: have 2 euros ready; just in case you need the WC...after all, not everything here is free.

Visited here during a day trip of Barcelona, had a lovely walk around the park and took in the brilliant views of the city - great opportunity for photos! Would say that the park was very busy. Would return but would spend more time here and come earlier in the day!

Wanted to go to Park Guell for a long time and finally went, the park was filled with interesting buildings and cactus, and not to forget, crowded, definitely a beautiful place to take pictures tho.
