Owner description: Park Guell is one of the masterpieces of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, who projected it in 1900. Inaugurated as a public park in 1926, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, reconizing its patrimonial and cultural value as a symbol of modern architecture, being one of the biggest exponents of Gaudi's modernism. This playful urban park, the work of architect Antoni Gaudi, features peaceful greens, winding paths and many sculptures and mosaics designed by Gaudi himself. We recommend the following options for ensuring that you arrive on time at the Park Guell Monument Precinct: - Metro (green line, get off at Lesseps or Vallcarca). When you leave the station, you’ll have a walk of about 20-25 minutes. - City bus (lines H6 and 32). When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 15 minutes. - City bus (lines 92 and 24). When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 5 minutes. - Barcelona City Tour and Bus Turistic. When you get off the bus, you’ll have a walk of about 10 minutes. - Taxi to Park Guell

Parc Guell was OK but we thought there would be more to see. The buildings in the beginning are very unique and we were disappointed there weren’t more like it.

We visited as part of a guided tour of Barcelona. The architecture is definitely something to see. Thoroughly enjoyed! There are a lot of steps so be aware.

We visited this site as part of a Gaudi-themed organised tour, and as such it is a must-see. Even though we were there mid-week off-season (is there such a thing in Barca?) it was very busy, and of course there were loads of school trips bombarding the place. I guess you just have to expect it and put up with it in a popular city!
Sad that the place never really took off when it was designed and initiated; commissioned by Mr. Guell, I believe it was supposed to be a small select housing development in a parkland-themed area, but only three structures ever got built apparently. Those that do still stand are quirky, as you would expect (like something out of Disney), and the other elements to note are the long wavy seating area studded with gorgeous mosaics, and the fountain and steps with the mosaic salamander - beautiful constructions both.
Definitely worth enduring the crowds to see.
