Skip the Line Guided Walking Tour: Gaudi's Park Guell in Barcelona

Gaudi's Park Guell Guided Walking Tour

Park Güell, an architectural marvel created by Antoni Gaudi in the early 1900s, was commissioned by Count Güell, who wanted Gaudi to design an elegant estate with family homes. But the housing development was unsuccessful and the space was instead turned into a public park. It’s an iconic feature of Barcelona that you don’t want to miss.

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.

Beautiful architecture and a nice view. Thanks to our guide Carlos, made the tour fun and interesting. There are a lot of flights of stairs so if u can't walk the stair it might be hard for u. We took the bus from Pl. Catalunya bus 24. Purchase a T10 ticket, go downstairs where u catch the Metro, there r ticket machines down there buy one ticket good for a group of people. Catching the bus at Pl. Catalunya, at the upper right side when back is toward Hard Rock, caticorner from the Apple Store or the side where Areobus stops but across the street. Get on the bus at the front, put ticket into machine the many times that is in ur group i.e. Two for two people. Usually a 30 min ride with several stops, the bus will drop u off at the park. This is the wrong side to enter, so ask the ticket agent for the main entrance, or walk into park make a left down several set of steps, walk out of park onto the street towards two buildings that look like Hansel and Gretal buildings. Across the street is a small souvenir shop and on the window has a small sign, that's the meeting place for Julia's tours. It was easy and great way to save money.

Loved this Park! It is truly another one of Gaudi's masterpieces. We booked this tour last minute prior to leaving for Barcelona and we are so glad that we didn't miss this Park. It's a must see!
