Highlights

  • Led by a local guide
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
Park Güell, an architectural marvel created by Antoni Gaudi in the early 1900s, was commissioned by Count Güell, who wanted Gaudi to design an elegant estate with family homes. But the housing development was unsuccessful and the space was instead turned into a public park. It’s an iconic feature of Barcelona that you don’t want to miss.

On this guided walking tour, enter Park Güell through the staircase dominated by a colorful dragon decorated with mosaic tiles; this Catalan style of mosaic is known as trencadís and is one of the most characteristic design styles in Barcelona. The park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, trencadís-covered bench.

Below the square, the roof of the lower court is supported by 86 Doric columns, with paths between them and viaducts on sloping columns. Gaudi’s work often united nature and architecture, and Park Güell is no different – the columns stand tall like trees.

Park Güell also contains a small house where Gaudi lived at one stage. The house has now been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudi.

This was a definite must! Great value for money as the guide was so informative and really helped us to understand the key aspects of the park. Jumped the queues and then had time to explore on our own after the tour had finished. We went at 10am which was good time - take the metro and follow the tourist signs as this will take you to the escalators to avoid strenuous hill climbs. Also make sure you allow plenty of time to meet your guide outside number 12 Carrer D'Olot the gift shop at parks main entrance.
