Modernist buildings & monuments

The Park Güell (1900-1905), initially conceived as an English-style garden city, is perhaps the most unique of the many works that Eusebi Güell commissioned Gaudí. It was declared a monument of universal character by UNESCO in 1984, along with two other works by the brilliant Catalan architect, so we can get an idea of the beauty of this work. Located in the northern part of the city, on the Gracia district, it was acquired unfinished by the city council in 1923.

From the forest of stone columns to the famous meandering bench around the perimeter of the main belvedere (not to mention the house where Antoni Gaudí lived for the last 20 years of his life), the park is a festival of color and fanciful shapes.

The accesses to Park Güell

This impressive park of Gaudí has five accesses, three of them are the best connected with public transport:

  • Calle Olot (it is the main one, where the famous dragon staircase is located).
  • Carretera del Carmel, 9.
  • Passatge de Sant Josep de la Muntanya.

Free access area

The restricted access zone or paid zone occupies 7.9% of the park. That area corresponds to the so-called monumental precinct where most of the buildings are located. The entire area outside the monumental precinct is freely accessible.

How to get there

Metro: L3 Lesseps / Vallcarca
Bus: 24, 116, H6, D40, V19, Tourist Bus

Park Güell is located on the slope of a hill whose height ranges between 150 and 210 m (330 and 210 ft). That is, the road to get to the park is uphill. If we also take into account that there are three accesses, it is important to know which means of transport we can use but also which will allow us to walk less. The tourist bus stop to get to Parc Güell is at Avenida de la Mare de Déu de Montserrat, 7. From there it takes 10 minutes to get to the park.

How to get to Park Güell from the center of Barcelona

If you want to walk as little as possible uphill, take bus 24 at Plaza Catalunya next to Rambla Catalunya (not to be confused with La Rambla). Bus 24 will take you to the entrance of Carretera del Carmel 9 (stop Ramiro de Maeztu - CN Catalunya), where you will also find the parking for coaches. This bus will also be good if you are visiting other of Gaudí's works (La Pedrera and Casa Batlló) on Passeig de Gràcia. Think also that it crosses the neighborhood of Gràcia by Gran de Gràcia street. If you want to take the metro and exercise you can take the metro line L3 at Plaza Catalunya or Passeig de Gràcia and get off at Lesseps station or Vallcarca station. It will take you the same time to get to Parc Güell from both stations (20 minutes). Keep in mind that in some sections of both routes (the steepest ones) you will find escalators. If you get off at Vallcarca look for Baixada de la Glòria, the escalators are there; from Lesseps look for Passatge Sant Josep de la Muntanya.

How to get to Parc Güell from the Sagrada Familia

The best option to get to Park Güell from the Sagrada Familia is the V19 bus. You will have to walk about 650 meters to the stop on Passeig de Sant Joan, between Rosselló and Córcega streets. You get off at the Ramiro de Maeztu - CN Catalunya stop and you will be near the entrance of Carretera del Carmel 9.

How to get to Parc Güell from Sants station

If you arrive by train to Barcelona and want to go directly to visit Parc Güell, take the metro line L3 at the same station and get off at Lesseps station. Nearby, on Gran de Gràcia street, you will find the bus stop 116. Get off at the stop Avinguda del Coll del Portell - Baixada de la Glòria and you will be near the entrance of the Santuari de Sant Josep de la Muntanya Avenue. You can also walk from Lesseps station. It will take you 20 minutes but remember that the path is uphill, although in one of the more difficult sections there is an escalator (Passatge Sant Josep de la Muntanya).

How to get to Park Güell from Barcelona airport

If you arrive by AEROBUS look at the Plaza Catalunya section because in that square is the last stop. If you arrive by train also look at that section because you can get off at Passeig de Gràcia station. If you arrive by metro, the airport line will take you to Zona Universitaria station and there you change to line L3. See the instructions on how to get there from Sants station to decide which station to get off at.
