Built between 1910 and 1914 and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gaudí's original aim in this 20-hectare (50-acre) park was to create a harmonious combination of urban and natural landscapes by building houses, gardens and public institutions. The project was never completed; however, you do still get to see a great mixture of architectural styles. For instance, the columns of the Sala de las Cien Columnas (Hall of the Hundred Columns) are purely classical, while the balcony they support is an example of the Romantic style; plus it's covered in colored mosaic tiles.
Parc Guell is really a wonderfull place where you can relax on the 'world greatest bench' made out of keramics and broken tiles and at the same time enjoy the view over the city and the 'Modernista' structures Gaudi has made.
This is one of the best and most interesting things to see in Barcelona. It is for everyone. The views are fantastic, the park is very well kept with great plants. the architecture is amazing and one of the best parks / open spaces in the world that I have seen. It has something for all ages and types of people.
This estate is the top of all Gaudi attractions. Wonderful buildings (especially the gate buildings) and unique outdoors structures. A place to remember. You'll need many hours to explore it in detail. It's so full of mystery and ingenuity.
It is amazing. There is so mush to see you could spend hours there and we didn't plan enough time to see it all. We didn't expect there to be such an beautiful view. If you take the metro you have to take a 20 minit, up hill walk to the park. Wear good walking shoe, because you will walk a lot, but you can't miss this to you trip to Barcelona.
I loved this place...it's beautiful...colorful. It's nice to just sit there and relax, have a picnic. My family and I loved it and will be back there very soon. If you ever do go to Barcelona, I recommend taking the tour buses that travel all of the hot spots in Barcelona...it is worth it. Enjoy!!
The park had so many different levels and parts. There was music playing when we got there. The mosaics were awesome and plentiful. What a neat place to discover! Gaudi is a genius!This is a place definitely worthy to see and so many beautiful photo opportunities.
This wonderous park combines the fantastic designs & craftsmanship of Gaudi with nature & mythology. Because Gaudi loved Spain's natural attributes, he often found ways to replicate it's patterns, movements & irregularities into his work. This park is a celebratory blending of man & nature.
I'd recommend this park to anyone interested in Gaudi, urban, park or architectural design. It is outside of the center of town but definitely worth the effort to see. An early morning jaunt before it gets crowded may be the best time to see it. Definitely bring your camera.
