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.

This was a definite must! Great value for money as the guide was so informative and really helped us to understand the key aspects of the park. Jumped the queues and then had time to explore on our own after the tour had finished. We went at 10am which was good time - take the metro and follow the tourist signs as this will take you to the escalators to avoid strenuous hill climbs. Also make sure you allow plenty of time to meet your guide outside number 12 Carrer D'Olot the gift shop at parks main entrance.

What an interesting place! The tour itself is rather short, but there is no shortage of interesting things to look and and wonder about. Our guide, Vigo, did his best on our English language tour to ensure that speakers of other languages got the most out of his commentary.

This tour was very informative and well run. You can go into the park without a guide but there is not really anything to tell you about what you are seeing and the story behind the Guell family and how the park came about. Well worth the money.

I am not sure about the name of our tour guide...I think Orio. He was very knowledgeable and articulate. He explained in details and gave us time to ask questions and take lots of photos. Park Guell is a fantastic attraction. A must-see. I would definitely recommend this tour to all my friends and relatives. Thank you!

We booked with Viator for the convenience and professionalism we trust. Their network of guides is unsurpassed. The tour was the perfect combination of information at a relaxing pace and exceptional tour guide (Christina). Christina was found with her umbrella right outside the main entrance. A word of advise, it was $7 to take a cab...just do it, you'll be glad you did!

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Our guide was wonderful. She did a great job of telling us about La Sagrada . Would recommend this tour to everyone
