    incredible view on the city. try to walk a little bit "off the track". definitely visit the 3 crosses stone hill (see photo) for an amazing panorama and a cocktail - you'll find the cocktail guy ;-)

    You don't necessarily need to get a ticket to the main area. The surrounding park is very nice as well and if you climb to the small hill you get an impressive view of Barcelona.

    Beautiful place to spend a morning or afternoon. Loads to see and plenty of areas to explore. Gaudi's house is pretty interesting. Try and get tickets for the monumental area in advance!

    A reduced parcel of the park concentrate the iconic modernist buildings (8€) and the surrounding area is free access. The experience could be better adding live music of projected videos.

    My preference is to enter at the top of the park then walk down rather than the other way around. Less crowded entrance and a nice way to see some of the park outside the monumental zone.

  • Luke
    The pay to play monument area is great, but the viaducts are equally charming and futuristic. You can probably skip waiting in lines for the Casa de Guarda, unless you are a Gaudi die hard

    In 1899, Gaudí build an extravagant residential area in the countryside of Barcelona. Some years later, Barcelona City Council bought it and opened it as a municipal garden, the Park Güell. Read more

    First of all, they should have a screen at the bottom of the stairs with info of how long wait it is. Otherwise, the park is nice. We didn't buy tickets to the restricted area due to 4hr wait.

    No trip to Barcelona is complete without seeing the innovative works of the architect Antoni Gaudi. Evidence of his work is spread throughout the city, none more than at the Parc Guell. Read more

    A must-see! Trek to the very top for some of the best panoramic views of the city. Take note of graffiti art on rooftops & building walls when looking out from viewpoints!
    Oliver Sears · June 22, 2013

    The park contains amazing stone structures and multi-colored tiled mosaics. Check out the terraced area at top of park to get a wonderful view of the park and the city of Barcelona. Entrance is free.

  • Yann T.
    8 EUR per person nowadays. If you enjoy a good walk, you can enter the park from the North (for free), and come down to the front to get the wonderful view of Barcelona. Leave through a side exit.

  • Heena
    Just beautiful. Love gaudi. Take bus to parc guell so you don't have long uphill climb from subway station. But tickets for monument section early. Try to go around sunset.

    This is one of my favorite places in the world. I loved it and be sure to take a snack if you want to stay for a while. Be ready to walk! Love the architecture and the locals explain so much!

    this place is awesome and I'm strongly recommend to visit it, you will see a unique architectural engineering from inside & outside, it's worth buying a ticket to have a tour in this fabulous park.

    Very far from the center of Barcelona and you will have a serious walk toward the hill. I wasnt fascinated by it, I thought it was better and more beautiful. If you have an extra time you can visit it

  • Isabel S.
    The park's really pretty & everything but I think that u have to wait and pay too much for it. If u walk around the park there's a lot to see and even walking up to the cross you'll get THE best view.
    Isabel S · July 26, 2015
  • Mariam T.
    Very very hot place and beautiful, great view to Barcelona. Take some food, or if you get hungry outside the park there is a sandwiches shop, delicious but a little bit expensive. Enjoy the musicians
    Mariam Tatishvili · August 9, 2014

    Amazing park! Gaudí's playful architecture blends perfectly with nature. The monumental zone is a must, requires a ticket, the rest of the park is free. Also the neighbourhood around is interesting.
    Bubble · November 15, 2014
  • Ugur S.
    Amazing, buy tickets from internet and use escalators. Very interesting park with beatifull statues, nice view of Barcelona. Walk top of the hill with the cross too. Gauidi is suprising geneous man.
    Ugur Savas · May 23, 2015
  • Alja I.
    Great place to see, but the area you need a ticket for is quite small. You can probably just get a nice walk in the outside areas of the park with less loud crowds.

  • TravelThirst /.
    Open air museum...beautiful gaudi`s art and views in a sunny day. Free entrance, no audioguides, better read a bit before going. Small cheap museum where Gaudi used to lived, furniture art, beautiful!

    Once you've entered the paid-for part of the park you're free to stay as long as you want, even past the official closing time. Nonetheless, be aware that the gates might be closed before you leave!
    Jeroen · August 29, 2014
  • Akira F.
    An unfinished urbanization started by Gaudi, with what had to be the market, the houses, etc. Also great views of the city! More fun way to arrive is by metro and take the mechanic stairs! Great pics!

    Buy tickets online and skip the line. Or do wait in the line and spend some time in the free area of the park while waiting for accessing the monumental zone. Online tickets are € 1 cheaper.
    Edwin · October 23, 2014
  • Petros A.
    Beautiful park! Beware though, the ticketed monumental area can get really crowded! I'd expect an early morning visit to be best in order to avoid taking photos of people rather than Gaudi's art...
    Petros A · March 15
  • Matteo B.
    Nice place with the very Gaudí style. I recommend to book online one day before to get in the monulental part of the park. If not, no problem, the public part is also really worth it... 😀

    Either get your ticket early or be prepared to wait a few hours from the time you buy it to the time you're allowed in. It's definitely worth the wait and the free areas are pretty cool too
    Dominic · July 24, 2014
  • Maxime P.
    It's a very beautiful place but everyone want to sell you things you don't need and the salamander statue isn't free anymore (you should "climb" the mountain to have a 360º view of Barcelona)
    Maxime Pourprix · December 31, 2015
    It's been announced that from October 2013, tourists will have to pay between €5 and €10 to enter Park Güell. A small price to pay, though, for such a beautiful park. · December 5, 2012
  • Benjamin F.
    Used to be free but now you will have to pay 8 € to visit the most famous part of the garden. Book your tickets online on advance, otherwise you may have to wait for hours before getting in.
    Benjamin F · August 9, 2014
  • Jennifer H.
    Great view of Barcelona! Easiest way (less walking) to get there is to take the 24 bus from Plaça Catalunya. Drops you off outside the entrance, then a nice 10 minute walk to Gaudí's work.
    Jennifer Haack · June 23, 2013
    This garden complex has magnificent stone structures: the tile mosaics that designer Antoni Gaudi is known for, the famous Dragon, and the sea serpent bench. Great city views from the top terrace. · October 26, 2011
  • Grazyna K.
    Not overly crowded. There is something peaceful and invigorating about this place. Definitely worth a visit if you are in town:-) Spend at least a couple of hours here.
    Grazyna Kosno · August 13, 2014
  • Khrystal K. D.
    Go to the top of the park for the best view of Barcelona. The park is magical with Gaudi's creations. The paths and trails are long, so wear comfortable shoes. Wheelchair accessible.
    Khrystal K. Davis · March 12
  • Jane O.
    Sit back on the bench surrounding the main square. The design with lumbar support is amazing! Find out about the water filtration and other "green" things Gaudi did, too! Way ahead of his time!
    Jane O'Brien · May 18, 2013
  • Santo D.
    I wouldn't recommend to get a ticket. It is enough to see it from the outside. The park is very crowded and one of the Gaudi houses is just a tourist shop. What a waste for such an amazing building.
    Santo Domingo · April 16
  • Hanne K.
    Fairy tale wonderland for kids and adults. Go with a picnic, let the children climb the colourful creations and hang out all afternoon. Check the pictures - you get the gist, right? Unforgettable.
    Hanne Klintoe · March 31, 2013
  • Herman C.
    Penny Press machine on the way to Parc Guell, outside a shop on the corner on the left if you go up the Calle de Larrard 37.. It's not open on Sundays, but you can squeeze your arms through the gate
    Herman Chan · May 13, 2013
  • Shaileshwori S.
    The house where Gaudi lived is free to visit on Sundays (until 6 pm). Go in the afternoon to also watch a scenic sunset from here and enjoy the glinting masterpieces in the garden.
    Shaileshwori Sharma · January 30
  • Bahadır
    Don't miss rest of the park while being fascinated by the Gaudi's works. Climb to the top so you may see a local musician playing by him/herself.
    Bahadır · August 11, 2014
  • Reham ..
    Don't miss this amazing park !! And the 4D cinema 😍 It's a must , don't go to any restaurants near the park ,, tried 3 and all were bad ,, there is subway near to it if you are Hungary

  • Sergey I.
    Frankly, I was a bit disappointed. Two huge lines and all for two houses and a nice set of stairs that you could actually perfectly see from the road.
    Sergey Ilin · February 20
  • SuiteLife Barcelona
    The world famous Park Güell is beautiful, spectacular and full of tourists. After exploring Gaudi's work don't forget to walk up the hill and round to the left for a great view of the city. Read more

  • Kalyna K.
    The public part is a great walk. Private paid part is a bit overpriced but bring your walking shoes and really go through the paths. About 1-2 hours. Lots of great pooches!
    Kalyna Kutny · October 25, 2015
  • C0_okie
    In my humble opinion, nothing special. If U are looking for lots of staff made by Gaudi, you will not find them here. Gaudi starts (and ends) at the entrance. Talking bout entrance-it's free of charge
    C0_okie · August 18, 2013
  • Ess E.
    The museum is a real waste of money!I thought there might be place to take a picnic in this park but there are no open grassy areas. Only a few benches here and there.however, still beautiful!
    Ess Ess · September 15, 2011
  • Andrei S.
    Magnificent place to visit. The idea of a mobile application guide is great but wi-fi for it's download is worthless. Did not manage to download it as I was not willing to waste a fortune in roaming
    Andrei Solonovich · May 9, 2014
  • Gabriel C.
    Must see! Make sure to come right at 9am so you can avoid the huge tour buses unloading waves of people. Also, if possible buy tickets before hand.
    Gabriel Coco · September 17, 2014
  • @pureGLAMtv
    Beautiful park - but very crowded already in April - you have to walk around and up to get the best views of Barcelona and amazing photo-spots. When going down take the left walkway!
