What to expect at Park Guell

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

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

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

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

Park Guell has two parts – 

1. Monumental Zone

2. Public Park

Monumental Zone

The Monumental Zone occupies 5% of the total area of Park Guell.

This section of Guell Park contains most of Antoni Gaudi’s work, which the tourists come 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

Known as “Plaça de la Natura” in the native language, the Park area is a large open space serving as a meeting point for visitors.

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

The park is surrounded by a sinuous, serpentine bench ornate with marvelously colored ceramic shards.

This seating setting provides a comfortable place to rest while feasting your eyes on the unmissable views of Barcelona and Mediterranean Sea.

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 Park Guell 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 Gaudi’s work.

1. There is nothing like Park Guell, elsewhere

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

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

The exclusivity makes Park Guell 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 Guell Monumental zone is totally worth it.

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

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

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

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

4. World’s longest bench is in Park Guell

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 he built at Park Guell 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 Park Guell worth it.
