WOW! What a wonder! The early time allowed us to stay ahead of the vast crowd that had started to arrive by
9 am. The idea of creating the first 'gated community' for workers and the new middle class was sadly not completed.
But the masterful design and execution of a park for the people of his era is astonishing. We will borrow ideas from his
colorful use of tile to restore our garden at home... recently destroyed by hurricane. Thanks! J and R Naples Florida.
The only glitch was finding the place to meet the knowledgeable guide. Location needs to be clarified at the local level.
We met at the front gates because that is apparently where the guides meet in the winter. It was chilly but very pretty. The mosaic benches are currently under renovation so we didn't quite get that view but, because we were a small, younger group, our guide, Emilio, took us around the planned community around Park Guell and up on to the Calvary Hill, which gave us spectacular views of Barcelona in the morning sun. Emilio pointed out and explained Antonio Guidi's attention to details in designing the walkways/roadways throughout the park area. Getting there early meant almost no one else was there.
This was an amazing tour early enough to beat the crowds. Gave me a true appreciation for the park and Im not big on tour guides my guide was great knowledgeable, and funny at the same time.
Beautiful, Beautiful! Amazing Design and Architecture... A must see. Our Guide was very good. A bit early in the morning - but not crowded.
Going first thing in the morning is really the only way to do it. You also get to see the sunrise over the Mediterranean in one of the best panoramic views of the city.
The tour guide we had was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions thrown at her. Her passion for the venue and area made us fall in love with it too. The early start was difficult but totally worth it to experience the park in a peaceful atmosphere and watch the sun come up.
Excellent tour and guide. This place is huge and on top of a very high hill so make sure if you're in a taxi you get dropped off at the entrance on top of the hill next to the bus parking lot. Otherwise you will be climbing uphill through the entire park before you get to the starting point. The Gaudi benches shown on most websites are fantastic but just a small part of this beautiful place. The genius of Gaudi is evident everywhere. You will be walking downhill for the most part so it's a relatively easy walk down stairways and ramps. Great vistas of the city below as you traverse the park.
The park is excellent. Our guide Sylvia was very knowledgeable and gave us interesting information without rushing through it. The park gets crowded pretty fast, so having an early access is definitely worth it.
Great! Loved going early in the morning and guide was wonderful!
This tour is the best way to see the park. Our guide was so informative and to see the park in early morning before it became packed with other tourists was a real bonus. Definitely worth it to understand the history and Gaudi's concepts.
