Park Guell opening hours

The park in Barcelona is open every day from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm.

The attraction’s opening hours are subject to change with the seasons.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Park Guell is as soon as it opens at 9.30 am.

When you start early, you avoid the crowd, especially the group tours coming in by 10.30 am. 

With fewer people and early morning light, you also get to take stunning photographs of the colorful Barcelona attraction. 

Nighttime is another precious hour to visit the attraction, with very few crowds and a different ambiance.

Though only the Free Zone of the Park is open at this hour, you can still get stunning night views of Barcelona from some good vantage points.

How long does the visit take

Visitors who stop for photos, read guides, and examine the intricate detailing at Gaudi’s masterpiece spend 90 to 120 minutes exploring Park Guell.

Tourists who are in a hurry are known to finish exploring the place in an hour.

Some sit on the bench and spend time, and many others climb up to the stone cross at the top of the Park and get panoramic views of the city.

What to expect

Located on the hills of Barcelona, Park Guell was a residential complex designed by architect Antoni Gaudi between 1900 and 1914.

Originally, the complex was supposed to have 60 houses, but the project was abandoned when it wasn’t much of a success.

After a few years, the authorities turned it into a Public Park.

Today, the monument reflects Gaudí’s signature architectural style, which includes colorful mosaics, organic shapes, and playful sculptures in accordance with nature, religion, and Catalan folklore.

The Park has two parts – 

1. Monumental Zone

2. Public Park

Monumental Zone

The Monumental Zone occupies 5% of the total area.

This section of Guell Park contains most of Antoni Gaudi’s work, which tourists often like to see.

The must-see attractions in this zone are:

  1. Guard Museum (Museu del Guarda)
  2. Hypostyle Room (Sala Hipòstila)
  3. Gardens of Austria (Jardins d’Àustria)
  4. Wash House Portico (Pòrtic de la Bugadera)
  5. Nature Square or terrace (Plaça de la Natura)
  6. The Roadways, Paths, and Viaducts

Public Park

The Park area is lush with vegetation and offers a peaceful retreat for the visitors.

This area is open to all but doesn’t have much of Gaudi’s work.

The Park’s green areas, housing a variety of plant species and birds, are popular among nature enthusiasts.

Many vantage points in the Public Park help you feast your eyes on the unmissable views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea.

It is also a popular picnic spot for both locals and tourists.

You will be interested in knowing many interesting Park Guell facts before heading to the attraction.

Is Park Guell worth it?

Park Guell is worth a visit for four reasons – it is Antoni Gaudi’s most refined masterpiece, at just €13.50 for entry, is a value-for-money attraction, a visit to the Park comes with a city tour, and you get to sit on the world’s longest bench.

We strongly recommend paying the entrance fee for the Monumental Zone at Park Guell and checking out all of Gaudi’s work.

1. There is nothing like the Park elsewhere

Since almost all of Antoni Gaudi’s work is concentrated around Barcelona, you can only see his masterpieces while holidaying in the city.

The Park is not a multi-destination attraction like Madam Tussauds or Disneyland, which you can experience during your next vacation elsewhere.

The exclusivity makes the attraction worth visiting.

2. It is value for money

For a general ticket costing only €13.50 and a discounted ticket price of Euros €9.33, what you see inside the Park Monumental zone is totally worth it.

Casa Batllo’s tickets cost €35, and Sagrada Familia tickets cost €31.60.

3. A trip to the Park comes with a city tour

Your trip to Park Guell from the center of Barcelona will cost you €2.5.

Even though the bus journey lasts only around 20 minutes, you can see parts of the city you won’t otherwise visit.

4. World’s longest bench

Worlds Longest Bench
Image: pxhere.com

The Egyptians gave ergonomic chairs to their Gods as long back as 7500 BC.

However, Antonio Gaudi decided to do one better at Park Guell.

The colorful, mosaic-embedded bench is 110 meters (361 feet) long.

It is said to be the longest undulating bench in the world.

The opportunity to sit on this bench and snap a selfie makes the visit totally worth it.

Park Guell map

Park Guell is on Carmel Hill in Barcelona.

It is best explored on foot and with ample time to spare.

Because of the exploratory nature of this tourist attraction, it is best if visitors carry along Park Guell maps or recommended walking routes with them.

Most tourists get a printout of the map or recommended walking route and carry it along.

After all, nobody wants to miss out on must-see items in the Park. Or keep walking around in circles.

The attraction involves a lot of climbing up and climbing down. 

We suggest you contact the Park authorities at the entrance and get the route map customized for tourists with limited mobility.
