Park Güell is another of Gaudí's creations and lies north of Barcelona centre, 20 minutes walk from Lesseps Metro (Green Line, L3). The park is full of narrow twisting pathways which meander through thepark. There are so many pathways and different routes it's easy to loose your bearings, however just as you think you're totally lost you usually come across one of the many park maps en-route.
The park is full of trees and shrubs and as you walk around you'll see unusual and colourful sculptures, mosaics, walkways and tiling. You can also expect to see some fabulous views of Barcelona from Güell Park as the whole grounds are build on hill land.
