How to get to Park Güell ?
The Park is off-centre. We must prepare this visit carefully :
- The tourist bus (blue route), which we mentioned in two of our packages, will drop you off just a stone's throw from Parc Guell, which is great. The stop is on the Travessera de Dalt at a 10 minute walk and it is recommended to reach it by the Carrer de Larrard (main entrance).

The Vallcarca station is located at the summit of the park where you will only have to go down towards the main entrance. The Lesseps station is located at the bottom of the Park, so you will have to climb using escalators.
- By taxi, it is very practical and fast but a little expensive. From the city center count 13-16 euros the race. Same price for the return. There is a taxi stand at the main entrance.
Parc Guell, Parc of Guell or Park Güell: the right spelling ?
There are many spellings for Park Güell, especially in English. The real name is Park Güell. Güell coming from a proper name, that of the patron of Antoni Gaudí, Eusebi Güell. Park in English, with a k, comes from the initial inspiration of the project, that of a garden city, a concept in vogue in England at the time of Gaudí. In Spanish as in Catalan the expression used was park with a k and not parque for example in Catalan and Güell for the reference to its patron…

The Gaudi Houde
Gaudí lived until the end of his life in this house which became a museum (Casa-Museu Gaudí). You can visit it to discover an exhibition of furniture designed by Gaudí for the Batlló and Calvet houses and on the first floor for the artist's office and bedroom. Attention however this visit is not free, and is not included in any of the packages we offer. Generally the visitor buys the ticket on the spot. The museum is very small and often crowded. It's up to you once you get there. The entrance ticket costs 5,50€.
The Monumental Staircase
At the main entrance, in front of you, you will find the monumental staircase composed of several stairs and fountains, the most famous is shaped like a mosaic salamander, symbol of the city.
The Hypostyle Hall with its 86 inclined columns
The Sala Hipóstila, composed of 86 six-metre high columns, was to serve as a market and alludes to a forest. On the ceiling of this room, circles of mosaics represent the four seasons and the lunar cycles.
The Wavy Bench of the Square of Nature
The Place de la Nature, a kind of ancient agora, is the most emblematic part of the park. Its long mosaic bench and one of the most photographed monuments in Barcelona. Gaudi used more than anywhere else the technique of the "trencadis" which consisted in reusing fragments of recycled ceramics to make new decorative motifs, typical of Catalan modernist architecture. The Plaza de la Nación offers a beautiful panoramic view of Barcelona.
The Park and the Calvary
A short walk through the park will take you to the Austrian gardens, a viaduct and the Calvary, the highest point on the hill.
The Boutique Laie Park Güell
A shop where you can buy souvenirs of the Guell Park and Antoni Gaudí's work. These are derived products such as postcards, posters, t-shirts but also jewellery and costume jewellery, decorative objects, reproductions and specialised books on Gaudí, Modernisme (Catalan Art Nouveau) and Barcelona.

Answers to your most frequently asked questions (Park Guell FAQ)
Can I buy tickets to visit Park Güell at the entrance of the Park ?
Yes you can buy admission tickets at the Park ticket offices. The price of the general admission ticket is then 8,50€. It is therefore more expensive than our offer because the official organizers prefer to book online at a fixed date and time for obvious reasons of fluidity of visits. You have understood it, only one advice: booking online in advance.
Visit Parc Guell for free ?
The monumental zone is freely accessible before 7:45a.m. and after the official park closing time. So you can enjoy it early in the morning or late for sunset or at night even if it's already dark. The rest of the park (17 hectares) is free of charge. Barcelona's citizens often take the opportunity to picnic, run or go for walks. For photographers, the top of this free area offers a beautiful view over the city.
Visiting Park Güell with children
Children under 14 not accompanied by an adult under their care are not allowed to enter. Don't panic, we don't ask you for your papers at the entrance but don't imagine leaving children under 14 visiting the Park on their own.

There is a specific itinerary adapted for people with reduced mobility in Parc Guell. However, due to the architectural features of the Park, with its irregular staircases and paths, people with reduced mobility may have difficulty moving around the monumental area or monumental centre.
