Park Güell Barcelona
yet subtle, Parc Güell is Gaudí’s spectacular imagination on a large scale: an
entire park. Featuring public gardens, unique buildings, and an array of nooks
and crannies, all with that inimitable Gaudí style. A trip to Park Güell is a
chance to get outdoors in sunny Barcelona, and enjoy some of the unique and
whimsical artistry of Catalan's favourite son. Pack a picnic lunch, and prepare
to be dazzled.
has a magic lizard watching over its entrance. (Don't worry if you're
lizard-phobic, el drac is a mosaic). In the background sit two

project didn't get off the ground. Fortunately, Güell and Gaudí still saw

forest of stone columns swaying like punchdrunk boxers, to the famous Serpent
Bench which winds along the perimeter, to the house which Gaudí
himself lived in for the last twenty years of his life, this Modernist
masterpiece is a riot of colour, and a festival of fanciful forms.
In 1984 it
was named a UNESCO World Heritage site, a day spent here is full of Gaudí oddity
and natural beauty (there are even flocks of non-native parrots that now call
the park home - a development Gaudí himself would surely have approved of!).
Access to the Casa Gaudí Museum (Gaudí's former home in Parc
Güell), requires a separate ticket.
The tickets for Park Güell Barcelona cost from 5,96 £. Don't miss the chance to get a ticket for one of the city's best tourist attractions.
