Skip the Line Guided Walking Tour: Gaudi's Park Guell in Barcelona

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.

Our guide was excellent! We knew nothing when we went into the park and felt like we learned a lot, plus we were able to take a bunch of photos. The park is very cool!! But wear comfy shoes and clothes - it and #39;s dusty, rocky and hot in July!

I am in love with Gaudi so this was another highlight. I think it is a must on a visit to Barcelona. The skip the line tour was well worth standing in the long lines. Excellent tour guide Carlos.

Our guide was entertaining and informative. She kept us at a good pace and explained the park and its history quite well. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and spent a couple of hours exploring on our own after it was over.
