Our Insider Tip

The Park Güell express entry tickets are included FREE with the Barcelona City Pass. Click here to learn more.

The park contains amazing stone structures (see below), stunning tiling and fascinating buildings. You can see from this picture the Gaudí dragon fountain that is at the entrance to Güell Park. This dragon is adorned in beautiful coloured tiling and there is something rather hypnotic and magical about it.

COVID-19 update

The Park Guell is open as usual however the Bus Guëll that was included with your Park Guëll entry tickets to take you from Metro station Alfons X (Yellow line, L4) is not operating. We have provided detailed COVID-19 information regarding the Park Guell at the bottom of the page.

Here you can see a walkway supported by twisting rock pillars that seem to be growing out of the ground like tree trunks. Although these are rather irregular in shape they do feel strangely natural too.

Gaudí was strongly influenced by natural shapes and used them in his work.

At the top of Güell Park is a terraced area where you get a wonderful view of the park and of Barcelona City. Here you will find multi-coloured tiled mosaic seats as shown in this picture. The vibrant colours of the tiles are truly breathtaking.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive. To learn more about how to get your COVID travel certificates valid for planes, cruises and other transport, follow one of the links below to learn more.

Park Güell also has a small house in the park which Gaudí lived in at one stage. The house has now been converted into a museum and contains interesting furniture also designed by Gaudí.

Our Insider Tip

If you're visiting the park by metro be prepared for at least a 20 minutes walk. The last 200 m walk is up a steep hill. If you have difficulties going up steep steps then a taxi or bus may be a better means of transport. You'll find bus information at the tourist information office at Plaça de Catalunya.

Due to Park Güell's location and size you'll need to schedule at least half a day for a visit to Güell Park but it will be well worth the visit.
