Park Güell, Barcelona
Are you planning to visit Park Güell? See our information below!
The colourful Park Güell is one of the most famous sights in Barcelona. In addition to the many beautiful buildings in Barcelona, this sight is also by the famous architect Gaudí. The park was created over 100 years ago at the behest of wealthy entrepreneur Eusebi Güell.
When the park was completed, Park Güell was intended for local residents. Because it became such a beautiful park with plenty of colourful works of mosaic art, it has now been taken over by tourists and hardly any local residents come, but that doesn’t make Park Güell any less impressive.
For the most beautiful mosaic structures, you have to go to the monumental part of the park, for which you have to pay an entrance fee. This gives you a time slot to visit the most beautiful part of Park Güell. It’s a good way to limit and spread out the tourists. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Barcelona.
Park Güell is open every day of the year from: 09:30 AM to 07:30 PM.
