Your private tour of Park Güell starts at the entrance, where your guide will meet you with tickets for immediate entry into one of the most magnificent and magical parks in the world.
Your guide will show you how Gaudí turned the barren hillside into the city’s most beautiful park for his friend, Count Güell. As you walk beneath the twisting viaducts, and sculptural monuments you’ll learn all about the Garden City Güell and Gaudí planned to build here, away from the pollution of the city below.
The park is filled with brightly colored mosaics and tiled sculptures inspired by nature and the animal kingdom. See the Dragon Staircase in the center of the park, a famous symbol of Barcelona. Keep your eyes open for other animal mosaics, like snails and elephants in Gaudí’s garden paradise. The bright colors and glinting, jewel-like mosaics are eloquent of the sunny, laid-back Mediterranean atmosphere of Barcelona. The magnificent buildings, gardens, monuments and sculptures are cleverly built into the topography of the hill – and are all the design of Antonio Gaudi, Barcelona’s beloved Modernist architect – who loved his sparkling creations so much he made his home here. It is now a museum open to the public.
Work on the Park began in 1900 on the orders of Gaudi’s wealthy patron and friend Count Guell but was never fully completed and the Guell family sold it to Barcelona council. In 1984 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains one of Barcelona’s most iconic and defining attractions.
As you climb higher along the curving pathways, finally, you’ll reach the top where a mosaic bench snakes around an open square. This is a great place to relax, enjoy the views and get some memorable photos of your tour of Park Guell.
