Park Güell is an artistic Garden of Eden outside paradise designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. It is located on Carmel Hill in Barcelona. In addition to a variety of different forms of architecture, the park also has brightly colored mosaics in the shapes of different animals, such as colorful lizards guarding the gate. A visit to the park offers the opportunity to tour the former residence of Gaudí, located on the winding mountain road of Park Güell, where the architectural visionary lived a quiet life on the mountainside.
Origins a part of commercially unsuccessful housing site n Casa Museu Gaudí since 1963 n being a historical artistic monument of national interest...
Guer Park, bridges and roads, and inlaid with colorful porcelain, benches winding, as if floating and flowing, fairy-tale mood. There is also Gaudi's residence, which is now the Gaudi Museum.
Love it the most!!!!!!!!! One of my favorite places! Walking in the park, you could feel comfortable. Love it!
Park Güell has the most helpful ticket people. As with many attractions in Barcelona, waiting in line may still mean you have a few hours before you can enter the attraction. Helpful Tip: Before 8am on Sundays, admission to Park Güell's monumental zone is free and there are way fewer tourists running around. We went to the park/free area on a Saturday and wandered around then we came back early Sunday morning to enjoy the El Drac/the mosaic salamander and the Guard's House/Caretaker's House with few people jumping into our pictures. The house is worth a gander because of its beautiful blue interior.
It is time for a sandwich? or you just want to rest after climbing all those stairs at the Sagrada Familia. Then why not visiting Park Guell? The park offers really nice sitting areas. Off course that my favorite was the mosaic bench on the main terrace. Needless to mention that the park is a fantasy to the eyes. When you are in there you feel like you exist in a fairytale or a Disney movie. Yes Gaudí was a genius!Take your time and stroll in Gaudi's Bird nests built in the terrace walls, and the Colonnades. If you still have time enter to the Gaudí Museum, where he lived during the construction of the park.
At this point, I think everyone is generally familiar with the fact that Gaudi was a total nutball. A genius perhaps, but totally insane for sure. This area in Barcelona, full of whimsical, artistic structures is something akin to what I imagine an acid-dream might be like. All I know is, if I were ever trapped in this park in an altered state-of-consciousness, I might have a mental breakdown.If your reality is totally stable, however, you'll probably really enjoy a stroll through. Nice gardens, interesting buildings, and a good view of the rest of the city. Two thumbs up!
One of the many contributions to the city of Barcelona by Antoni Gaudi is Parc Guell. It's a gorgeous park with beautiful architectural structures that redefine your thoughts on buildings. There are colorful tiles, columns, wavy benches, and a tunnel that defies your imagination. Maybe yours, but not Gaudi. He was truly a master of his craft. I'm happy to be able to see it in person. The weather was gorgeous when we went and we were able to take plenty of pictures despite the horde of tourists. If you are ever in this beautiful city, check out the wonders of Parc Guell. Free to all.
Take a stroll thru Parc Guell to enjoy the twisted and colorful works of art and complex architecture by Antoni Guadi. At the top of Parc Guell is a terraced area where you get a breathtaking view of the park and of Barcelona. My favorite structures were the multi-coloured serpentine mosaic benches and mosaic tiles at the ceiling amongst the columns upholding the terrace. The vibrant colours of the tiles are truly beautiful. You may have to wait in line but don't forget to take a picture with Gaudí's multicolored mosaic dragon fountain at the main entrance.
This is an dreamy, fantastical, and eclectic park designed by Gaudy in the early 1900s. It's definitely worth at least a half-day of wandering to explore the colorful and strange structures that Gaudy dreamt up. Entrance to the park is free though if you want to check out Gaudi's home/museum, La Torre Rosada, there is a fee. For a gorgeous view of Barcelona head to the main terrace, where there is an amazing--and huge--mosaic-tiled serpent bench that winds it's way around the plaza.
Park Güell reminded me of some kind of artistic amusement park, where every turn around a corner brings a new ride. The colors are absolutely breathtaking. I especially loved the mosaic dragon fountain at the park's entrance and those haunting stone arches that look like something from a dragon's lair. The park is usually crowded with tourists, but rightfully so - if you only had 24 hours in Barcelona, this is where to come first.
