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

Park Guell is really lovely. To see the Gaudi buildings you need a ticket. They only allow a certain number of people in that area at a time. We bought our ticket the day before. I suggest you go early in the day as it gets crowded quickly........especially if there are a lot of cruise ships in port. The park is on a hill. There is a bus that drops you at the gate but we got a taxi from our hotel, it was under 12 euros. We then walked down to the Metro after seeing the rest of the park.

This park is lovely in itself, and I really enjoyed relaxing on the grass, but the Gaudí buildings are amazing! They make this park a complete must for Barcelona, although the paths are full of street vendors selling jewellery etc. TIP: DON'T buy water from the people selling bottles - there are taps to refill your own bottles dotted around.

My friend and I used public transportation to get to the Park and we ended up hiking up a hill to get to the Park. We then learned we had to wait 2hrs to actually see the park...It was amazing though and worth all of it. We also went into Gaudi's Home too which was not expensive but still slightly overpriced. I think it was 5.50Euro. The Park Guell was more...like 10Euro I think...

There were long queues to get in to anything it is expensive we walked round the perimeter where you can see everything anyway and had a good look around the park which is free

A long time must-visit for Gaudi fans and with great city views. It used to be free and worth the long uphill trek or taxi ride to get here. But now the main areas require a ticket and if you don't arrive early in the day or pre-buy online, you will wait hours or not get in at all. Meanwhile, the free areas of the park are now jambed with people (used to be peaceful) and even more junk sellers. I'd still recommend for Gaudi fans and/or if you go early, but if you are only mildly interested, skip it.
