Park Guell is a magical wonderland created by Gaudi. Here are the main highlights you will see inside the park.
The well-known mosaic tile bench that winds its way along the terrace around Park Güell was created using the Trencandís technique, which was invented by Gaudí. It takes a serpentine shape and features varying vibrant tones using jettison tiles from a factory close by. Rest and take in the beauty of the park in style at the Serpentine Bench.
Nature square or Placa De La Natura is a large esplanade located right at the center of Park Guell. It was originally designed as the stage for the park's Greek theater, which was never built. The square is a popular spot for visitors to take photos and enjoy panoramic views of the park. It is a great place to relax and take a break from sightseeing.
On each side of the main entrance, you will find two pavilions. The one on the left was a concierge's office with a waiting room and a phone booth, while the one on the right was the porter's house, hence its name Casa del Guarda, which is now part of MUHBA (Barcelona History Museum).
The stairway on the entrance leads to the Hypostyle room, which was intended as a marketplace. It is made of 86 fluted columns. Inside, the sections where columns are absent, spaces simulate three naves, as in a large temple. The benches in the Hypostyle Room offer great views of the entrance pavilion and dragon fountain.
This area was converted into a plant nursery when Park Guell became a public park. The area gets its name because Austria donated trees to the park on the occasion of the exhibition "Vienna in Barcelona" held in 1977. From here you can enjoy great views of the park, and of the two houses that were built here.
On the eastern side of the Greek Theater Square, there is an original iron gate that leads to Casa Larrard's gardens, where Güell resided. The road goes through a pine grove with a portico built on top of a huge retaining wall. It is one of Gaudí's most beloved examples of organic architecture.
Antonio Gaudi designed three viaducts, five meters wide leading to the hill of the Three Crosses. You will also find a transversal road which is ten meters wide. It connects the Carmel road with the exit for Sant Josep de la Muntanya. Gaudí also designed three-meter-wide pedestrian paths and shortcuts with stairs and slopes that allowed direct access to the different plots.
Park Guell is divided into two different zones: Monumental Zone and Forest Zone.
The whole of Park Güell is open to visitors. However, since 2013 the entrance to the monumental area has been regulated to avoid overcrowding.
