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

Beautiful park with abundant vegetation. However, due to the fact that the park is on a hill you have a lot of climbing to do to reach the top. Good health required! From the park you have a sufficiently good view on Gaudi's structures, so save you the trouble (and money) to buying an entrance ticket. Quite a long walk from the nearest metro station.
Not an absolute 'must see', but a nice experience if you have enough time to spend in Barcelona.

Another insight into the mind of Antonio Gaudi. The park is lovely and worth a visit. The concept of a "development" was certainly unique in those years.

Disappointed with this landmark. Nothing really to see, only 2 buildings and a staircase. Your better off going to his other buildings and touring those.

Was in Spain in 2012, and now in 2018 all changed :) you have to pay for entrance, and all is so filled with tourist. Does not feel like a relaxing park anymore, and can’t say it’s a must
