Gaudi's Park Guell Guided Walking Tour

Take an in-depth exploration of the colorful Park Güell, one of Barcelona's most famous landmarks, during this 90-minute tour with a local guide. This architectural marvel, designed by renowned Catalonian builder Antoni Gaudí, is a must-see for any Barcelona visitor or design-lover.
Make your own way to the entrance of Park Güell, meeting your guide at 10am to start your exploration. Check with your tour operator at the time of booking to confirm the exact location and time of your meeting. Then follow your guide inside this fascinating public space to begin your visit. This one-of-a-kind architectural gem was built by the famed Antoni Gaudí in the early 1900s, based on a commission from Count Güell, a Barcelona local who hoped to create a residential estate for local families. After plans for the on-site housing were scrapped, the space was transformed into public park for use by Barcelona residents.
Enter the park via the site's main staircase, which is dominated by a rainbow-colored lizard adorned with an intricate mosaic of tiles. This detailed style of tile work is known as trencadís, and is considered one of the characteristic design techniques of Barcelona. As you continue further inside the park, stop at its main square, which is flanked by the wavy profile of the snake-like trencadís-covered bench.
Step below the square, where you'll encounter the park's lower court. This intricately-designed area is supported by a phalanx of 86 Doric columns, along with walking paths and viaducts set on sloping columns. Many have remarked on the symbiotic relationship between Gaudí's designs and the natural world, a relationship which is evident in the tree-like design of the lower court's column's.
Finish your visit to this amazing park at the small on-site house, which Gaudí once-occupied for a short stay. The house has been transformed into a museum, including a variety of furniture created by this genius craftsman.

Waited a while outside for everyone to turn up and get signed in as so many of us, then all separated into groups. My guide was lovely and as I was on my own, she assisted in taking my photos for me. Thoroughly enjoyed it. You definitely need enclosed walking shoes. Toilets only at entrance with lengthy queues. Loads of taxis all lined up outside venue

Very good tour. It was easy to find the meeting point and join the tour. I was a bit nervous because the English only tour had sold out and I was mixed with another language, but the guide managed to fully translate in both languages must be tempting to shorten one occasionally and we still saw and heard as much as the English-only tour from comparing notes with someone later. I would recommend this as a way of seeing the Park.

This is one of the walking tours I loved very much during our euro trip. Francesca is really amazing. She knows a lot about the place. There is a definite charm around the way the guided tour happened. The place is absolutely pretty to start with. Nice panaromic view of Barcelona with the ocean backdrop. Park as such is simple because its an housing project but Gaudi designs are stunning and nothing like i have seen which is built in that era so far. so it was a visual treat.

Another great tour. Skip the line makes life so much easier and with a professional guide you actually know about what you are seeing. You get to see the most important sections of the park without wasting your time. Vincent was our guide and he was the best. Vincent was well organized, important, professional and very knowledgeable in the smallest details.

We loved this tour, but be prepared for some hiking uphill, so wear comfortable shoes. We had some older ladies in little thong sandals who were having a hard time. The park was so interesting and we got in right away. Loved the park. I highly recommend. Another great tour guide!
