Park Guell

Park Guell was originally designed as a exclusive housing estate for the rich. This fabulous space atop Mount Pelat, although a commercial failure, is where Antoni Gaudi really let loose!

Packed with more symbolism and mystery than a Dan Brown novel, Park Guell is a true representation of the architect’s three passions in life; nature, nationalism and religion. It is here you can really see how the Catalan wizard melds his design into the landscape. Perfect harmony between man and nature. With great views out across the city and quiet walkways amongst the contours of the hill, you can with a bit of effort find some peace and quiet to enjoy this Gaudi gem.

It is a shame that the 'Monumental' section of the park is no longer free, but it is well worth the entry free. Just make sure that you buy tickets online before you go. Only a limited number of people are allowed access at any one time.

Top Tip

Don’t miss out on the climb to the top. From the plaza walk past the Gaudi House Museum (worth popping in to see some of his furniture designs) to the side gate (by the coach park) and follow the road uphill.
