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.

Parc Guell Reviews
The day we went it was very sunny and you get an amazing view of the city. The paths were easy to follow and there was maps around so you knew where you were. You can actually spend hours here... more »
Lovely peaceful park overlooking Barcelona. The architectural aspects are beautiful as are the views over the city. more »
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.
