park guell

one of Gaudi’s masterpieces

park guell, the estate on the hill

Park Guell origins 

Park Guell was originally designed as a exclusive housing estate for the rich. This fabulous space atop Mount Pelat, but although it was a commercial failure, it 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. Therefore, it is here you can really see how the Catalan wizard melds his design into the landscape.

The Park and nature

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 Antoni Gaudi gem.

Visiting The Park

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

There is now a dedicated shuttle bus from the Alfons X metro station to the park. It is included in the ticket price
