Park Guell (Park Güell), Barcellona

Main entrance of the Park Guell

Park Guell (Park Güell) is one of the most visited attractions in Barcelona. It is named after entrepreneur Eusebi Güell, who assigned the design of the park to the architect Antoni Gaudí. In 1984, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site under “Works of Antoni Gaudí”. Visitors will have to purchase a ticket to see the monumental part of the park. 

Barcelona is very hot in summer and in the monumental part of the park there are no drinking water fountains so it is strongly recommended to take water, suncream and a hat to avoid illness. Avoid the hottest part of the day by visiting the park early in the morning: this way and by buying tickets online you will also avoid  the interminable lines and crowds. It is essential to be punctual and show up at the booked time because the entrance hours are very strict.

A guided tour of the park can take up to 50 minutes but you can stay there as long as you want. A complete tour of the park could take hours so arm yourself with a good and comfortable pair of shoes.

What is the Park Güell?

It is  is a privatized park system composed of gardens and architectural elements. The park is characterized by brightly coloured mosaics, sculptures and extravagant architectural forms. 

When was the Park Güell built?

The park was built between 1900 and 1914 and opened as a public park in 1926.

Who built the Park Güell?

Initially the park was to be an urban complex of 60 houses under the responsability of the Catlan entrepreneur Eusebi Güell. He entrusted the project to Antoni Gaudí. The project was a failure because the complex was located too far from the city and only Güell and Gaudì himself bought a house there. In its place Güell and Gaudí designed a park that could be the setting for a fairy tale.In 1922 the Güell family sold the park to the city of Barcelona and in 1926 it was inaugurated as a public park. 

Why was the Park Güell built?

Eusebi Güell was  concerned that increasing industrialization could drastically reduce Barcelona’s natural spaces. He therefore decided to build a new middle-class residential area, later called La Salut, which had a “distinctive green heart”. He entrusted the project to Antoni Gaudí.
