Owner description: Park Guell is one of the masterpieces of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, who projected it in 1900. Inaugurated as a public park in 1926, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, reconizing its patrimonial and cultural value as a symbol of modern architecture, being one of the biggest exponents of Gaudi's modernism. This playful urban park, the work of architect Antoni Gaudi, features peaceful greens, winding paths and many sculptures and mosaics designed by Gaudi himself. We recommend the following options for ensuring that you arrive on time at the Park Guell Monument Precinct: - Metro (green line, get off at Lesseps or Vallcarca). When you leave the station, you’ll have a walk of about 20-25 minutes. - City bus (lines H6 and 32). When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 15 minutes. - City bus (lines 92 and 24). When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 5 minutes. - Barcelona City Tour and Bus Turistic. When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 10 minutes. - Taxi to Park Guell

I was really surprised to discover that the Goverment has decided to charge the entrance for the Gaudi park...quite disappointing.

This park is okay (but probably not worth seeing if you have a limited time in Barcelona), but whatever you do, don't pay the €8 entry fee to get into the "Monumental Zone." It's not worth it by a long shot.

Having been to Barcelona many times in over 20 years for both business and pleasure I always enjoyed a visit to the park.

The views from the terrace are wonderful and it was always a pleasure to mix with the local families who see it as their park.
Under the terrace there was always a busker who made the place atmospheric.
Now the city council has decided to charge and it's too much!!!! No local families or kids playing and the buskers are banished from the Gaudi area.

It's lost its charm and atmosphere.
What a mistake!!!!

THis is one of the most beautiful parks in the world. It is also a chance to see the house where Antonio Gaudi lived in his last decades. Pay the extra couple of dollars and go into the area where Gaudi built two smaller homes and created mosaics galore, including his famous salamander. The man is a genius and this is an amazingly beautiful place.

The park was badly signposted and the map we were given did not help much. Perhaps it was us ! We were very disappointed by the whole place.
