Park Guell is extremely popular and receives upwards of ten million tourists every year.
This attraction in Barcelona is second only to Sagrada Familia.
Park Guell is situated off Carrer d’Olot in Barcelona.
Park Guell is made up of two parts – the Monumental Core, which requires the purchase of a ticket, and the unrestricted area which requires no ticket.
Monumental Core makes up 5% of this Park and contains most of Antoni Gaudi’s work.

Park Guell is located on Carmel Hill in Barcelona. This is why it is best explored on foot and with an ample amount of time to spare.
Because of the exploratory nature of Park Guell, tourists planning their trips search for ‘Park Guell maps’ or ‘recommended walking routes at Park Guell’.
After all, nobody wants to miss out on a Gaudi masterpiece within Park Guell. Or keep walking around in circles.
This is also why most tourists get a print out of Park Guell’s map or recommended walking route and carry it along.
The other option is to go for Park Guell guided tours in which case a trained guide who knows the park accompanies you.
Note: Park Guell involves a lot of climbing up and climbing down. No Park Guell map can help you if you have limited mobility. For tourists with limited mobility, we suggest you contact the Park authorities at the entrance and get the Park Guell route map customized for tourists with limited mobility.
