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 was a lovely tour with my 18 year old daughter. We had tried to go the previous year and had been disappointed to find that you needed to book a time slot for the most popular areas of the park. Our guide was very informative, the pace was good and despite the fact I had been to the park before, I learned and saw a lot of new things.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our guide, Carlos, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made the subject highly interesting. It was definitely better than walking around the park ourselves would have been as he pointed out things we could have missed and went into detail about various elements of the park which were all very interesting.
