“Overhyped place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

I felt the place was overhyped everywhere. The park has two parts, one that you can explore with ticket Euro 8 (without much walking) and other on foot via gardens.
We felt it was not worth the purchasing ticket, however enjoyed the evening there.

Interesting. A must see in the city. There are many things to appreciate. The buildings, the gardens, the architecture, the colors, the design

“fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

visited here in Jan 2014. Lots to see, the lighting and design is truly fascinating. You are given a handset which tells you all about each of the rooms you visit. I enjoyed the rooftop visit with the Gaudi design and overlooking Barcelona. Taking your camera is a must as there is lots to photograph. Its a fair climb although there is a lift but worth walking if you can. An enjoyable visit.

“Cold”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Gaudi's architecture in this one is a bit "cold"; and would prefer to visit the three Gaudi places you must see: Casa Batllo, Segrada Familia and Park Guell.
