Top 5 Features of Gaudí's Park Güell

Only the 'k' in Barcelona's enchanting Park Güell reveals that it was inspired by England's garden city movement. The rest is Gaudí in his element! It's bursting with the great architect's trademark iconography, but here are the facts behind its best bits!

The Market Hall

The Market Hall

Park Güell was intended to be the center of a residential complex that never was. Though inspired by Greek temples, the market hall also honors the Roman road that once ran nearby.

The Dragon

The Dragon

Straddling the main stairway, "El Drac" is rich with religious connotations from Eden to St. George. The fountain it guards, however, suggests Python, the dragon of Ancient Delphi!

Gaudí House Museum

Gaudí House Museum

Only two villas were completed of the planned 60. Gaudí lived here himself between 1906 to 1925 after it failed to attract buyers! It's now home to a collection of his designs, and needs a separate ticket to visit.

The Winding Bench

The Winding Bench

Overlooking the city, the serpentine bench covered in mosaics was hailed by none other than Salvador Dalí as a precursor to the Surrealist movement. He should know!

The Caretaker's Lodge

The Caretaker's Lodge

Religious and political symbolism aside, the upside-down cups adorning one of the gingerbread-esque houses at the main entrance are said to represent Gaudí giving up coffee!

Our insider tips

How Long to Visit?

If your stay in Barcelona is brief, you will only need a couple of hours to see Gaudí's monuments. However, bear in mind that the entire park is much larger than the "Monumental Zone" discussed here, and anyone keen on the great outdoors could easily while away an afternoon taking a walk across its scenic corners!

What Are the Opening Times?

Park Güell's Monumental Zone is open from 8:00 AM to 9:30 PM during high season (May 4th to September 6th); 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM from March 29th to May 3rd and September 7th to October 24th; and 8:30 AM to 6:15 PM through winter. Only 400 visitors are allowed in every half an hour, so consider booking your tickets online in advance!

How to Get There?

The hill is a bit of a climb, but there is also an escalator (Baixada de la Gloria). It is accessible by metro (20 minute walk from Lesseps station), taxi or buses 24 and 92, which stop by one of the entrances to the public area of the park.

This is a must! The park is huge with various photo opportunities

This allows for entry into the park with no need to wait. Just bear in mind once you enter the park, likely from the top of the hill by the bus stop, that is THE restricted area. There isn’t somewhere special this gets you. It just means you can take photos of Gaudi’s park & houses around the park.

In-depth and unmissable if you are remotely interested in Gaudi.

Our guide Alma was super knowledgeable and all around wonderful. Great expansive tour that lets you get more context around Gaudi’s masterpieces - including Sagrada Família tower climb. Really well orchestrated and executed tour from beginning to end. Would recommend.

Monsterrat was fantastic exceeded all my expectations

Monsterrat was amazing ! Beautiful scenery , church interesting history ! The tour to Sagrada Família was very interesting but lots of standing , which after the Monsterrat tour was tiring ! Better to do them separately ! Tour guides were great very knowledgeable

Good tour, but late starting, about 1/2 hour. Knowledgable guide

Some what difficult to find the starting point down Larrard St. Had to ask someone at the entrance to the Parc, but he did explain it. Waiting at the starting point was not fun when we had tried so hard to get there on time. Otherwise, a very good experience.

A long day for us but totally worth it. Saw everything we wanted to.

Allesia was a great guide, as we would expect. This actually exceeded our expectations in the amount of Gaudi projects we saw. We didn't go inside all of them, but that was OK. We saw plenty of Casa Batllo, Parc Guell and La Sagrada Familia. Thumbs up!
