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.

It was great to have the tour as the guide explained how the park became a park instead of a housing complex for the rich and famous. well worth doing the guided tour and we were very happy with Viator and their guides.

Carlos was a very knowledgeable tour guide. Our daughter had visited Park Guell a couple times previously without a guided tour, but really learned a lot she didn't know while on this tour. It was interesting hearing the many different theories behind Gaudi's work in the park. We recommend.

Met up with the guide across the street from the park at the gift shop. The guide provided a good history of the creation of the park and Gaudi's influence. The intricacies of the mosaics are amazing in the snakelike bench surrounding the main square and in the staircase featuring the grand salamander, also in the spires of the whimsical houses. An interesting and beautiful park, don't miss it.
