Book your visit to one of the most iconic sites in the city of Barcelona
The park was named after Eusebi Güell, a wealthy businessman with an interest in Gaudi’s talent who served as his main patron. Although the main idea for Park Güell was the construction of a luxury residential complex, with the passage of time this idea was discarded, and instead, the park we have all heard about was built. A magical and unique place surrounded by green sceneries that always surprises its visitors
Finding the right place to enter Park Guell? Here you have the map to get your covered.
The park with an area of 17 hectares, hosts magnificent gardens, original works, and sculptures that fit perfectly into nature as Gaudi wanted. The architect Antoni Gaudi was very inspired by nature and wanted to give the park a natural dimension with his works such as his tree-shaped columns. There are 3 possible entrances – two at the bottom and one at the top, and be careful to check where you want to go, because the park is very large (17 hectares), if you go to the wrong entrance, you will have to walk
You should know that the park is divided into two areas:
The “Gaudí” area, that is to say, is the paid part of the park also known as the “Monumental zone”, where you can find the dragon’s staircase, the washerwoman’s portico, and many others.
The free part – the “Forest zone” gathers Mediterranean gardens and a breathtaking view of the city of Barcelona.
Of course, the most interesting things are in the paid part! So there is a park within the park. Although you can see interesting things in the free part, such as the viewpoint, the viaduct, and the beautiful gardens, it is better to spend some time in the “monumental” park, the part with restricted access. The Monumental zone includes the entrance area with the colorful Salamanders, the Casa Del Guarda, the balcony with arched benches, and the market hall. To ensure the best experience for tourists visiting this Gaudi masterpiece, only 400 visitors are allowed inside the monumental zone every half hour. So buy a ticket beforehand to the Park Guell monumental zone!
Many people who think they are in the right place are refused access to the monumental park because they arrive late! Hence the importance of finding the right entry! Due to the exploratory nature of this attraction, it is best if visitors take a Park Guell Map or recommended walking routes with them.
Most tourists get a printed map of Park Guell or a recommended walking route and take it with them. After all, no one wants to miss out on the must-sees in Park Guell. Or just keep walking in circles. Hence, be mindful of what entrance you would like to visit and which travel points in Park Guell you want to visit.
