Parc Guell, Barcelona

4.1
#1 of 73 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.

  • It will amaze you the amount of time spent in decorating these beautiful place. I wish they could have light effects at night so that the glass designs can shine. It is lovely.
  • A "must see" in Barcelona! 😍 It's so beautiful. Amazed by its well designed with thoughtfulness! Friendly and helpful staff. The park is easily accessible by bus. Recommend joining the official guided tour (Euro 15.5).
