Inside Park Guell

Park Güell – The Most Famous Park in Barcelona

Book a Visit

    The Park is named after Eusebi Güell, a rich entrepreneur and count that had a great passion for Gaudí’s work and who became his patron. The park was originally conceived as part of a luxury residential complex, but over the years this idea was dropped and in its place Güell and Gaudí designed a park that could be the setting for a fairy tale.

    The park was opened to the public in 1922 and since then has become one of Barcelona’s main tourist attractions. In 1984, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

    What makes it so special?

    This green space measures 17 hectares and includes rounded forms, columns that look like tree trunks, animal figures, and geometric shapes. Most of the architectonic elements are decorated with mosaics made from colorful ceramic pieces.

    The architect, inspired by nature, decorated the park with exquisite structures that imitate natural forms where neither rigidity nor classicism exists. All the element’s sinuous and colorful forms are influenced by symbolism, both political and religious.

    The artist made the most of a 196 Ft (60 m) slope in Carmel Hill, where the garden is located, to create a path of spiritual elevation, where Gaudí planned to build a chapel that was finally replaced by the “Monumento al Calvario”, a promontory located on the highest part of the park where visitors can obtain the best views over Barcelona.

    The Park’s center is a large square that has a large bench that runs along the plaza, measuring 360 Ft (110 m) long. It’s shaped like a long snake and is decorated with colorful mosaics.

    Park Güell houses the Gaudí House Museum, where the architect and his family resided between 1906 and 1925. Currently, the house features a collection of furniture and objects designed by Gaudí. In our opinion, it’s not very interesting to visit.

    On either side of the main entrance are two houses that seem to have come from a fable. One of these buildings is now a shop, while the other is called the Casa del Guarda (Guard’s House). It features audiovisual exhibitions about how the park was built.

    Well worth visiting

    Park Güell is a magical and extremely unusual green space that will leave visitors astounded. It would be a real shame to visit Barcelona and not go to this magical green space.

    Visitors will have to purchase a ticket to see the monumental part of the park. Normally, there are huge lines since approximately 400 people enter the park every half an hour, so we recommend you purchase your ticket online and thus avoid the endless queues. Online tickets are also slightly cheaper than tickets purchased at Güell Park.  You can buy tickets via the following link:

      Park Guell in Barcelona – description, history, photo

      Park Güell (original name – Park Güell) in Barcelona is one of the most striking and famous works of the “great and terrible” Antoni Gaudí , which, like some other creations of the brilliant architect, was never completed.

      It’s not so easy to get to this attraction: Park Güell is still far from the center of Barcelona, ​​and during the construction period it was located “in the middle of nowhere”, and
      more precisely – on Bald Mountain.

      And yet, Park Güell has been and remains one of the most visited attractions in Barcelona. Let’s talk about the history of its creation.

      In 1899, Eusebi Güell purchased a 15-hectare plot of land in Barcelona’s ecologically clean Salut area, 3 km from the city centre.

      The place, frankly speaking, is not the most convenient for life: a very uneven landscape (the angle of inclination of some streets here is still 45 degrees), the absence
      any acceptable infrastructure, remoteness from the center – but that was exactly what Guell needed.

      The fact is that Count Güell, a versatilely educated man, lived in London for a long time, admired the landscape gardening complexes of this city, was well acquainted with Sir Thomas’ Utopia
      Maura, and indeed – was a man of very enlightened views.

      All these factors were the reason for Guell’s idea – to create an ideal settlement, a garden city, a community for rich people far from the hustle and bustle of the city – that is, a place for a healthy and
      harmonious existence in harmony with nature and oneself. Güell’s “personal architect”, the brilliant Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi, was called upon to implement this idea.

      Gaudi coped with the task entrusted to him brilliantly. Under his leadership, a gigantic amount of work was carried out over 14 years, the territory has changed beyond recognition, however, looking ahead,
      let’s say – this project, perhaps for the first time in Guell’s career, suffered a crushing fiasco.

      It was assumed that the entire territory not given over to public areas would be divided into 60 identical, triangular-shaped plots, which would be instantly bought up by Barcelona industrialists and
      merchants and order the construction of villas for them – but this did not happen.

      Contemporaries did not appreciate the advanced ideas of the Goody-Güell tandem – that is why, shortly after the count’s death in 1918, the Güell children sold Parc Güell to the municipality, and Barcelona thus
      acquired an amazing Gaudi masterpiece, which now comes to visit up to 8 million people a year.

      And this is no coincidence: of all the works of Gaudi, Park Güell is perhaps the brightest, most fabulous, entirely consisting of secrets, allegories and mysteries. “We all come from childhood” – correctly noted
      someone, and perhaps this is the reason for the unfading popularity of the park.

      It is surprising that such a serious, completely devoted to work, fanatically religious person like Gaudi, in the case of Park Güell appears as an esoteric and mystic. Yes and how
      could it be otherwise, if the place where the park was built was previously called “Mont Pelada” (Bald Mountain)? Where can any mysticism and devilry be found, if not here? Hints and secret signs
      allowing for a variety of interpretations, are everywhere here – you just need to be able to see.

      Take, for example, the red and white crest of a stylized fortress wall, which stretches for 220 meters along Olot Street. Everything is clear with the wall: let us recall the words of Güell: “Let us leave below
      “valley of sin” (that is, Barcelona), we will fence ourselves off from it with a fortress wall, and we ourselves will settle on these hills and live here in unity and harmony . .. ”

      But why is the crest of the wall red and white? Is it because the sails of the ships of the Phoenicians, excellent navigators and merchants, looked exactly like this? But the Park is definitely
      was conceived by Gaudí and Güell as a completely separate entity, an island (Thomas More and his “Utopia” come to mind again) or a ship!

      And what about the entrance pavilions, which just look at them and make you want to eat? Why not gingerbread houses doused with sugar icing on top? And again – a fairy tale, again – a witch! Evil witch from
      Fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm Hansel and Gretel.

      It was this work, which was presented in the form of an opera in 1901 at the famous Liceu theater in Barcelona, ​​that prompted Gaudí to the idea of ​​”gingerbread houses”.

      But that’s not all! Take a closer look at the mushrooms crowning the roofs of the entrance pavilions.

      Mushrooms are not simple, but the very species “amanita muscaria”, which, as you know, have a hallucinogenic effect. It is these mushrooms in different countries and in different periods of history
      mankind were used by sorcerers, healers, shamans to introduce their wards into a trance or state of euphoria, in which one could see very unusual dreams and perform incredible

      It was these mushrooms, if we are talking about that, that was especially popular among the intellectuals and creative personalities of the 19th century – such as Baudelaire, Hugo, Verlaine, Nietzsche, Yeats, Balzac – and served
      source of inspiration for them. And again – magic, dreams, mysticism and mystery, with which the whole park is simply overflowing!

      And Gaudí’s famous salamander is one of the fountains located in the center of the park’s main staircase? Any decent alchemist will tell you that the salamander is a symbol of one of the primary elements.
      – fire.

      It was believed that due to the unusual coldness of the body, it is able to be on fire without burning, and also extinguish any flame. However, given that the happy student years of Eusebi Güell
      spent in Nimes, and in the coat of arms of this city there is an image of a relative of the salamander – a crocodile, it is possible that the symbolism is connected precisely with this circumstance.

      Moreover, there is a palm tree on the same coat of arms – and please, we will find a palm tree very close to the salamander in Park Güell!

      And if we take into account that a little higher is the hall of the Hundred Columns, symbolizing the temple of Apollo in Delphi, why not assume that Gaudi’s beast is the same dragon Python that guarded the entrance to

      In general, again a mystery and again a lot of interpretations, which is characteristic of any true work of art.

      Riddles are riddles, and you can talk about them ad infinitum, but I think this is not the reason for the extraordinary popularity of Park Güell. Everything is simpler – the park is amazing, fabulous,
      extraordinarily BEAUTIFUL!

      This is a hypostyle hall with a wavy ceiling surface and beautiful ceramic medallions, each of which is unique, and the central square of the park located above the hall, a highlight
      which is a winding bench lined with “trencadis” mosaic, included at one time in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest bench in the world, and is still considered the most
      long piece of abstract art.

      By the way, a beautiful view of Barcelona opens from the central square – it was not without reason that Gaudi compared it with the deck of a ship, and the bench, as you can see for yourself, is also called
      ergonomic – we have never seen a more comfortable seat!

      And what about the amazing viaducts with inclined galleries and columns, built of “wild stone” (as Gaudí called it) and seemingly violating all the canons of classical architecture?

      And the famous Golgotha, or the “Platform of the Three Crosses” – the highest point of the park? Or the house in which Antoni Gaudí lived for 19 years before finally moving to the construction site of the Church of St.


      In general, talking about Park Güell is like describing the divine taste of passion fruit to a person who has never tried it. To understand – you have to try. Come – we will
      try together!

      Park Guell in Barcelona (Spain).

      Photo and description Park Guell

      An obligatory point of all excursion programs with a visit to Barcelona is Park Güell, which has absorbed the best examples of the incredible architectural work of Antonio Gaudi.

      In this park (Park Guell), created at the beginning of the twentieth century, the great architect thought of every detail. However, tourists are also attracted here by picturesque panoramic views of Barcelona (Spain), which open from special sites.

      The whole environment of Parc Güell is imbued with the ideas of an eccentric architect. As you know, he was against strict right angles and straight lines. In all his creations, he put maximum diversity.

      All the palaces, houses and cathedrals of Gaudí are enlivened by his spirit. People easily recognize his work, knowing the artist’s weakness for alluring curves. The architect did not adhere to any specific schools. He created harmony by improvising with his own imagination.

      Right at the entrance to Park Güell (Barcelona), intricately shaped gingerbread houses with colorful ceramics on the facades catch your eye. This is followed by a ladder, where sculptures of animals are hidden in the spans. The dragon is especially popular, with which tourists love to take pictures so much.

      The staircase will soon lead visitors to the hall of the Hundred Columns. This is a fabulous room with dizzying undulating vaults. In reality, the columns turn out to be not one hundred, but eighty-six. Due to such an abundance of bends, a person gets the feeling that everything around is moving, bending, and the columns seem to be floating side by side.

      There is a wide platform on the roof of the hall, which is open to the public. On it is a satisfied long wavy bench, decorated with fragments of ceramics. Here people like to discuss this bench very much.

      It is said that the material for the cladding of this creation was chosen very carefully. These were pieces of bottles and cracked tiles. The architect asked his assistant to sit on the bench in the Parc Güell in the nude and then, using the body print, created the shape of the bench.

      A narrow path leaves the site, which is decorated with a gallery with columns very similar to natural trees.

      Park Güell is filled with fantastic images that intricately connect reality and fairy tale. Non-standard forms, colorful colors and unusual proportions make the architecture come alive. Any little thing is worthy of an admiring glance, and all together it seems just a masterpiece of true art. Gaudi was not afraid of anything and his courage found an outlet in delightful creations that today seem to be an echo of the culture of the future.

      It must be said that Park Guell in Barcelona (park guell) was built at a time when Gaudi was not known. One rich man, having visited England, saw there something similar to a garden city, and he wanted to embody this idea in Spain.
