Tickets for Park Güell
A flamboyant and wacky park perched above Barcelona, designed by Gaudí
- Get digital tickets for Park Güell - Antoni Gaudí's fantastical outdoor park, full of flamboyant Modernist touches for which the architect is justly famous

- The views of Barcelona's highlights (including Gaudí's Sagrada Familia) from this park are absolutely spectacular
Flamboyant yet subtle, Park Güell is Gaudí’s fanciful imagination on a large scale: an entire park. Perched above Barcelona, Güell features lush gardens, quirky buildings, and all kinds of fanciful details. From the lizard at the entrance, to the famous snaking Serpent Bench the details will put a smile on your face. A visit to Park Güell is a chance to get outdoors in sunny Barcelona and enjoy some of Gaudí's finest work. That's a win-win proposition!
From the manmade walls, roads, and walkways that mimic natural forms, to the exuberant buildings and colorful tile work, Park Güell is basically a Gaudí theme park.
There's a magic mosaic lizard watching over the entrance, behind which sit two quirky gingerbread-style houses. And the deeper in you go, the kookier it gets.
Originally envisioned as a gated community for aristocrats, Count Eusebi Güell's housing project was a flop. In what we'd now call a 'pivot', Güell put Gaudí to work creating a park, and in 1926 Park Güell was opened to the public. It was an immediate hit. (If at first you don't succeed...).
From the forest of stone columns swaying like punchdrunk boxers, to the famous Serpent Bench winding along the perimeter, to the house which Gaudí himself lived in for the last twenty years of his life, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a riot of color, and a festival of fanciful forms.
NOTE: Access to the Casa Gaudí Museum (Gaudí's former home in Park Güell) requires a separate ticket.
- Entrance to Park Güell - Monumental Zone
- Casa del Guarda in Carrer Olot - due to questions of limited space we cannot actually guarantee you'll be able to get into the building
- Casa Gaudí Museum
- Be at the entrance of Monumental Zone in time for your selected timeslot. The park doesn't allow entrance outside this time band (30 minutes)
- Show your smartphone ticket at the entrance
- Keep your tickets on your smartphone, the staff may ask to see them at any time
- The Plaça de la Natura is partially closed until the end of the summer due to renovation works. This will partially affect visitors' access
Cancellations are not possible for this ticket.
Barcelona is quite hilly and the way to the park is no different. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water.
The circular mosaic area was blocked off for maintenance so that was Dad we could only see from the edge
The upper benches are amazing and are work looking not only at the inside but over the outer edge as well
I just love that all materials used to make such beauty are recycled
