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.

Our guide, Marie Carmen, was very knowledgeable. The main drawback is that Park Guell is very crowded, and the tour group we were in was too large. It was difficult to keep together and see what she was talking about. The Park is amazing.

Great tour, albeit very busy. Really enjoyed the architectural, structural, intricate detail and artistic way of Gaudi. The history of the Park Guell is quite compelling as well. This is one of the tours that it is good to get a skip the line deal! All this said, it's hard to believe this much is made about a failed turn-of-the-century Barcelona subdivision...

If you are looking for a tour of Park Guell then this is the one for you. The tour guide was informative, funny and friendly. Another huge benefit was skipping the line to enter, meaning no wasting time waiting. The guide left plenty of time throughout for you to see things at your own pace and take pictures. I did this tour as a solo traveler but it would also be great for families or friends.
Such a beautiful place, highly recommend a visit.

This tour was great. You really get to appreciate the park more when you learn about the history. It was raining the day of our tour and our tour guide was still very energetic and upbeat. We really enjoyed this tour
