Good to know

It was meant to be a residential village for the rich. Count Eusebi Güell commissioned Gaudí for the project, which was abandoned and eventually transformed into the park we know today.
Most of the park is free, but if you want to see the main attractions (in the Monumental Zone) you'll have to pay a fee.
Gaudí lived here from 1906 to 1926 in what was the ‘model' house for its failed real estate plan. It's now known as Casa-Museu Gaudí and open to the public for a small fee
A limited number of people are allowed in every hour. So it's worthwhile to book your tickets ahead of time, especially during summer when the park is at its busiest.
In 1984 the park was declared a Unesco World Heritage site.
Bring water and snacks, food options within the park will be limited and overpriced.
The best time to visit is an hour before closing, when the crowds are gone and the Monumental Zone can be entered for free. If you time it right you can also catch the sunset.
The park is rich in symbolism and mixes elements of mythology (the dragon), Christianity (the three stone crosses) and Catalan nationalism (the serpent fountain with a Catalan flag).
The best way to get here is by bus (H6, 24, 32 or 92), which will drop you off more or less at the gates. Otherwise you can take the metro to Lesseps station and do some uphill walking, or get off at Vallcarca and take the escalators.

The inside story

The essence of Gaudi’s architecture is its fascination with nature and natural forms. In Park Guell, nature collaborates in the experience. Originally a hill, the land has been reshaped into different forms but always with respect to the original contours.

For example, there’s a 60m (197ft) difference in elevation between the different levels of the park and Gaudi used a winding path rather than a direct route so that visitors can feel the shape of the land as they move around it. The original curves and gaps of the hill have been preserved, influencing the architectural features. When once the earth was barren, Gaudi ensured that cisterns would collect rainwater to feed the vegetation he planted.
