Like stepping into a gingerbread wonderland

Completed in 1914, Park Güell is one of the most important and beautiful works by the well-known Catalan modernist Antoni Gaudi. Along with his Sagrada Familia Cathedral, Park Güell is a symbol of the city of Barcelona and was been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1980's.

Perched atop a hill and offering unbeatable views of both the city and sea, Park Güell was originally conceived as an urban project between Gaudi and the wealthy industrialist Eusebi Güell, a fact evident in the park's spaces for washing, markets, and public events.

Today, it's a must in Barcelona and everyday hundreds of visitors come to get a photo lounging on the park's serpentine mosaicked benches overlooking the Barrio de Gracia (perhaps the quintessential Barcelona postcard). As you can imagine, the park gets crowded, especially at sunset and during the summer months. I'd suggest visiting first thing in the morning so you can explore Park Güell's whimsical architecture and beautiful gardens in peace.

A good panorama of barcelona

Güell Park is a great garden with grand architectural elements located in Barcelona. It was designed by Antonio Gaudí, an important Catalan architect and one of the greatest exponents of modernism. Along the whole park, Gaudí's style is displayed. Everywhere you find incredible color mosaics or columns of incredible shapes, all perfectly in line with the gardens around.

Walking in the park is really incredible, and it is a great place to have the perfect panoramic view of Barcelona. The only drawback is that to get there I recommend taking a taxi, because the walk there is quite harsh due to the steep hills.

Winding paths

Located in the outskirts of the city, close to the Tibidabo, the park was built under the supervision of Eusebi Güell, between 1900 and 1914, and was inaugurated as a public park in 1922. An example of Gaudí's naturalist period, this magical spot of 17 hectares radiates forms of baroque tendencies, displaying the artist's boundless creativity and imagination.

Gaudí not only designed the architecture of the park, the winding paths, the fantastic buildings and the great open spaces with wonderful columns, but he also decided which plants and trees to include. Walking through the Güell park gives the sensation of traveling through a wonderful dream.

How to get there without dying because of the hills

I lived close to Güell park for a year and almost every Sunday I would go uphill to take a walk and read the newspaper in the sun. Walking in this park is a great experience. People should know it is possible to get in public transport without nearly killing yourself and walking up the hill. As far as I know there are three options:

1- By subway until VALLCARCA (Line 3, the green one) and it is well indicated from the metro station. There is a very steep street with mechanical stairs. This entrance is located on the side of it, very close to the Tres Cruces, highest point of the park with stunning views of Barcelona. From there you can go downhill to the most famous area next to the main entrance.

2- By bus with line 24 passing by the entire Paseo de Gracia. It leaves you just at the opposite entrance to the Vallcarca one.

3- This one is trickier. Take the subway until JOANIC (yellow line) and at the corner of Escorial street, take the BUS OF BARRI number 116. It leaves you just in front of the main gate without having to climb any hill.

Remember the transport ticket in Barcelona allows you to change to another means of transportation free of charge as long as it is within an hour and 45 minutes since you validated the ticket. And after all this, you only have to enjoy it!
