Description
Park Güell is a large park and garden complex in Barcelona, Spain. It was designed by famed Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and built at the dawn of the twentieth century. Sprawling gardens surround ... Read more
fantastical architectural elements, which include fountains, seating areas and sculptures. Gaudi’s usual wavy, melting style is on full glorious display and augmented by intricate and colorful mosaics. The highest point in the park offers full vistas of Barcelona and the sea beyond.

Park Güell is a great day trip. Be prepared to buy tickets in advance if you want to see the actual town. However, even if you don’t there is plenty to see. Don’t miss the lookout from the top top.

As Park Guell's popularity, on the day I visited it, I couldn't get the entrance ticket to enter and enjoy this worldwide famous of Gaudí's work. However, I still could enjoy the outer architecture and the city of Barcelona from the uphill. Make sure to book the entrance ticket in advance (far more) if you want to join the crowd stream of visitor to this colorful striking site.

The park with the famous round mosaic benches
The high-altitude Parc Güell was built at the beginning of 1900 on an estate on the Muntanya Peladade in the Barcelona district of La Salut. From the mosaic benches in the park you have a fantastic view of Barcelona and the Mediterranean sea. In the weekend - and especially on the Sunday morning - it can be quite busy. The week at sunset is often a better choice. Thanks to the escalators you do not have to climb all the way anymore (but a taxi or the bus is still faster). Do not forget to visit Gaudi's former home in Parc Güell. It is now a museum.

Gorgeous and large sprawling park built onto steep hills a bit away from the old city center. The entire park has lots of accents by Gaudi, but if you want to get into the museum and the highly ornate part of the park, it's only to paying customers, and even with multiple gates, there's always a line. Probably better go earlier in the day. Even without going inside the museum, the park is lovely and has pretty good hiking opportunities. Bring a snack, not a whole lot to eat in the immediate area.

Stunning architecture by Gaudi. Truly like no other place I have seen. It's like it's right out of a doctor Suess book!

There's a reason why I put wellness on the tag; it's caused we have to climb up (read walk) to get there, which I suppose it's a good exercise. Wuih. I just passed by through it using the amazing Barcelona Bus Touristic. It''s a clever name, isn't it?
Back to Park Guell, we have to pay to get inside. I didn't go inside, but a colleague of mine saying something which had meaning not worth. It was a personal opinion. I couldn't say further as I just looked from the outside. :)

An amazing example of Gaudi’s work. Get there early to beat the crowds and be able to take it in slowly and without haste, as it should be.

I’m writing this review after I visited the park for the second time. I opted for a paid entrance at the Pavilion again. It was probably bad timing for me because about half of the pavilion rooftop was under renovation. I’d say I shouldn’t have paid for the entrance and went around the free area instead. The free area is HUGE and there is a lot to explore. There are buskers along the walk paths too. Be prepared to climb up and down the hill. Or use the staircases of course. Good place to warm you up when you visit during the winter season.

It was quite a hilly walk up there so take the bus/drive. Buy ur ticket online ahead of time so u can get in at ur desired time because there's a long queue to buy the ticket there & u can only buy a ticket a couple of hours ahead due to the limited times slots for people going in. U may buy an electric guide to walk u through the park. Once in I enjoyed observing the different style of architecture. There were views of the city and load of flowers in the garden area. Besides taking loads of pictures @ selfies there wasn't much else to do there except rest in the garden or on the open court.

One of the best works of Gaudi. This park contains some iconic pieces of works by Gaudi which defines Barcelona. Most pictures you would see of Barcelona are from here if not from Sagrada Familia. A must visit site when you are in Barcelona.

You have to pay a bit to go here and there is not that much to see. Can get really hot and crowded in the summer time, which takes away the enjoyability of the place

This place is whimsical. Gaudi's insistence that the design integrate with the natural surroundings is impressive.

Park Guell is one of the most interesting places to take a guided tour! There is so much to know about the design and history of it that a tour is definitely necessary if you care to understand better than just site seeing.
