Park Güell Barcelona Tour
- Barcelona's Park Güell is one of the Catalan capital's most legendary landmarks. Architect Antoni Gaudí's masterpiece is one of the city's finest tourist attractions, but only part of the 17-hectare park is open to the public.
- Access to the monumental area is subject to a charge. The entrance ticket entitles you to visit the best-known features of the park: its modernist sculptures, its winding dragon-shaped staircase, the terrace with its undulating bench covered in brightly coloured mosaics, the caretaker's house, the hypostyle hall, the Austrian gardens and, with a special ticket, the Gaudí Museum House.
Park Güell has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984. Gaudí's park is considered to be one of his most emblematic works. It has been recognised for the unique architectural originality of its various monuments, such as the Lizard Fountain, the Hypostyle Hall, the undulating bench in the Plaça de la Natura, the House-Museum, the viaducts and the Washerwoman's Portico. This is multiple recognition by UNESCO of the originality and ingenuity of Gaudí, who received awards for a total of seven of his creations, including the Sagrada Família, la Casa Milà, la Casa Vicens, la Casa Batlló.
History of Park Güell and its creator Gaudí
It all began with an ordinary meeting between two people: a wealthy entrepreneur, Eusebi Güell, and an absolutely brilliant architect, Antoni Gaudí. A true friendship, numerous projects such as the Palais Güell, a church "La Colonia Güell" and a wine cellar preceded the fabulous adventure of Park Güell. From its origins in 1900 to its construction, we tell you the story.
The history of Park Güell began in 1900 when Eusebi Güell bought a plot of land on a hill in the south of Barcelona to create a garden city. The garden city was to include a chapel and a total of 60 houses. But the construction costs soared that only two houses and the park were completed. Work was completed in 1914 and the park became the property of the city of Barcelona 10 years later. The only consolation for Gaudi was that he was able to buy one of the houses when they came up for sale. He lived there until the end of his life. Today it is the Gaudí House Museum, which can also be visited with an additional Park Güell Ticket.
What to see at Park Güell
The monumental staircase & the lizard
Right in front of the main entrance to Park Güell is the monumental staircase with several staircases and fountains, the most famous of which is in the shape of a mosaic lizard, one of the city's most famous symbols. The lizard of Park Güell is also called the salamander or "the dragon of Park Güell". The staircase is designed in a neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau architectural style and is covered with coloured ceramic mosaics using the trencadis technique, emblematic of Gaudí's work.
The Hypostyle Room
At the top of the monumental staircase is The Hypostyle Room, made up of 86 sloping columns.
The "Sala Hipóstila", composed of 86 columns 6m high, was intended to serve as a marketplace and refers to a forest. On the ceiling of this room, mosaic circles represent the four seasons and the lunar cycles. Another wonder of the Park Güell...
The Nature Square and the serpentine bench
The Nature Square, designed as an ancient agora, is located above the Hypostyle Room. It is the emblematic place of the park. You know it without having seen it because its long mosaic serpentine bench is one of the most photographed monuments in Barcelona, along with the Lizard in Park Guell. The bench is 110m long and is said to be the longest wavy bench in the world!
The Gaudí House-Museum
The Gaudí House-Museum or "Casa Museu Gaudí" in Catalan, was the residence of the architect Antoni Gaudí from 1906 to 1925. This house was a kind of show house for a project that included the construction of sixty houses in the park.> This museum can be visited with an additional ticket to Park Güell ticket. As in the case of the Monumental Zone, you can enter according to the date and time slot you choose when you buy your tickets. This visit is therefore queue-free, just like the entrance to the Park.
The Portico of the Washerwoman
On the eastern side of the Nature Square and its serpentine bench is an original iron gateway that leads to the former gardens of the Casa Larrard. A path or portico crosses a grove of pines in the form of a large wave made of inclined columns, with a double column acting as a buttress. A very good example of the organic architecture advocated by Gaudí. We will see how this building gives its name to the Portico of the Washerwoman.
Of all the gardens in Barcelona, this park is the most visited for its monumental area, as well as for its free section. The Catalans appreciate it for its calmness and its vegetation. Tourists like it for its alleys, paths, and viaducts, designed by Gaudí. Let's not forget that the park is a tribute to nature. Before its transformation, this mountain was called the "bare mountain" because it was deforested at the time. With the construction of Park Güell, Gaudí introduced a multitude of plants and Mediterranean vegetation, as well as a whole system of human and water circulation.

The park is out of the way. You need to plan your visit carefully to arrive at the time indicated on your entrance ticket:
- The hop-on hop-off tourist bus (blue route) which we mentioned in two of our combined Park Guell entrance tickets, drops you off just a stone's throw from Park Güell which is nice. The stop is on the Travessera de Dalt, a 10-minute walk away, and it is recommended that you get there via La Carrer de Larrard (main entrance).
- Bus 24 leaves from Plaça Catalunya and leaves you not far from the park. Other bus lines are: H6, 32 and 92.
- Park Guell Metro: get off at Lesseps L3 or Vallcarca L3 metro stations and walk for about 20 minutes. Vallcarca station is located at the top of the park and you only have to go down to the main entrance. The Lesseps station, on the other hand, is at the bottom of the park, so you will have to go up using the escalators.
- By taxi, it's very convenient and fast but a bit expensive. From the city centre it costs 13-16 euros. Same price for the return trip. There is a taxi rank at the main entrance.
- By car: The park does not have its own car park. Only taxis and buses can park in front of the park entrance. If you wish to drive to the park, you should look for the nearest car parks. All car parks near Park Güell
