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.

This is a must tour n Barcelona. The local tour office is right across from the main gate of Park Guell. They break you down in groups by language and off you go. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and covered a lot of ground in our allowed time. The tour includes entrance into the restricted area of the park and this is an area that cannot be missed because it is central to Gaudi's genius. The tour ends in the park and you can spend as much additional time as you wish. I recommend taking the top viaduct all the way to the Three Crosses.

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
