Barcelona: Park Güell Admission Ticket
- Valid: 1 day
per group up to 10
Visit Park Güell with your timed admission ticket and explore the unique site at your own pace. Marvel at Antoni Gaudí's colorful mosaic art such as the Dragon Stairway with its world-famous salamander. Have a break from the city life while strolling through the green Austria Gardens and take stunning photos of Barcelona from the park's viewing points. The plan for the park was assigned to Gaudí by Eusebi Güell, a Catalan entrepreneur who wanted to recreate a British residential park on Muntanya Pelada (Bare Mountain). It was opened as a municipal park in 1926, recognized as an artistic monument in 1969 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. While you have to enter the park at your booked time slot, you can stay for as long as you like after and take it all in.
Fra le tante opere di Gaudí è quella che mi ha meno colpito, anche se vale comunque la visita. Un consiglio per fotografi, di mattina si avrà sempre il sole contro. L'unica parte che ne beneficia è la scala dei draghi (che è anche la zona più famosa).

Such a great tour! Mark was absolutely amazing and the tour was so well organized. Not a minute was lost, the information given and the way it was delivered caught the attention of our 11 and 14 year olds who both agreed in the end that it would have been such a waste to go the Sagrada Familia without our passionate and super cool guide. We all fell in love with the history and curiosities shared with us, we could hear and understand our guide crystal clear in English and we were never crowded. The 1,5 hour free time between the Sagrada F. and Park Guell was very important not only to rest and eat but also to digest what we had just seen and the rest was literally “a walk in the park”! Thank you Mark!!
Our first destination after arriving in Barcelona! The best place to wonder about listening to the parrots flying over you and the street musicians who are excellent! It’s such a happy place with lots of palm trees!
Difficult to find but was well worth a visit. Lovely surroundings
The park is magical, Allow at least 3hours to enjoy it fully.
Very well guided tour with Marcos, an excellent tour guide.
