The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, in Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain). Carmel Hill belongs to the mountain range of Collserola – the Parc del Carmel is located on the northern face. Park Güell is located in La Salut, a neighborhood in the Gràcia district of Barcelona. With urbanization in mind, Eusebi Güell assigned the design of the park to Antoni Gaudí, a renowned architect and the face of Catalan modernism. The park was built between 1900 and 1914 and was officially opened as a public park in 1926. In 1984, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site under "Works of Antoni Gaudí".
Park Güell is the reflection of Gaudí's artistic plenitude, which belongs to his naturalist phase (first decade of the 20th century). During this period, the architect perfected his personal style through inspiration from organic shapes. He put into practice a series of new structural solutions rooted in the analysis of geometry. To that, the Catalan artist adds creative liberty and an imaginative, ornamental creation. Starting from a sort of baroquism, his works acquire a structural richness of forms and volumes, free of the rational rigidity or any sort of classic premises. In the design of Park Güell, Gaudí unleashed all his architectonic genius and put to practice much of his innovative structural solutions that would become the symbol of his organic style and that would culminate in the creation of the Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family (Catalan: Sagrada Familia).

  • Nice park or it's good if lose. On the other hand provide good shoe because quite a way its chaotic and some way its stiff

  • Beautiful, relaxing park and where you can fully admire the art of Gaudi! I highly recommend buying tickets online with the time slot. We happened to arrive at the ticket office and find all the tickets sold out. So we had to buy them for the next day, with the time slot. You can buy the base ticket or private tour with guide (of course you can choose the language). The park is huge, divided into a paid area, where the famous houses are located, and the free part, which is really big and where you can find a lot of attractions like local people singing, playing, selling the jewels made with their own hands. If you are traveling to Barcelona you can't miss the visit to Guell Park!
