What You Can Expect
On this guided walking tour, enter Park Güell through the staircase dominated by a colorful dragon decorated with mosaic tiles; this Catalan style of mosaic is known as trencadís and is one of the most characteristic design styles in Barcelona. The park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, trencadís-covered bench.
Below the square, the roof of the lower court is supported by 86 Doric columns, with paths between them and viaducts on sloping columns. Gaudi’s work often united nature and architecture, and Park Güell is no different – the columns stand tall like trees.
Park Güell also contains a small house where Gaudi lived at one stage. The house has now been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudi.
This tour was amazing!
This was a great tour! The group was pretty small (6 people) so it was easy to walk around and hear what was going on. The guide also gave us time to take pictures and see things ourselves - sometimes tours will speed you on without letting you stop to take good pictures. This was great!
