Parc Guell, Barcelona

4.1
#1 of 72 in Parks in Barcelona
One of many notable city structures designed by famed architect Antoni Gaudí, Parc Guell is a garden complex built between 1900 and 1914. World Heritage–listed, this complex is noted for being one of the largest architectural structures in this part of Europe. Though it features some of the finest examples of Gaudí’s creativity, for many visitors the highlight is not the exquisite architecture, but the sweeping views. Just inside the main entrance is the interpretive visitor center, featuring an exhibit about Gaudí’s building methods, as well as displays on the history of the park. Wooded and laced with footpaths, the park attracts over 4 million visitors each year. The park can be reached on foot, but if you wish to avoid a vigorous uphill walk, hitch a ride on the public bus.

  • Utterly beautiful, awe inspiring space to visit. Make sure you book as far in advance as possible though as when we turned up with our tickets mid-afternoon they had sold out completely. Staff were lovely and helpful with great English too.
  • For the tickets, it was money well spent. Excellent way to spend an afternoon. Perfect weather. Excellent scenery. The architecture is truly phenomenal. My wife and I had a wonderful time there.
