All You Need to Know About Park Guell's Map

Built in the early 19th century, Park Güell is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Barcelona. Situated in the outskirts of the city on Carmel Hill, this masterpiece was designed by one of Spain’s most popular architects - Antoni Gaudí. The initial plan was to use the barren land and build a luxurious housing estate that included 60 villas. However, the project didn’t get a positive response, after which it was converted into an artistic and playful urban park. Expect grand entrances, blasts of colour, lots of mosaic art, a magnificent stairway, artistic sculptures, Modernist buildings and more. The park is divided into two parts, the forest and the monument's area (the latter is where you’ll spot most of Güell’s artwork). Since there are tons of things you can do inside, it is best to keep a map handy so you don’t get overwhelmed.

Highlights of Park Guell

The Dragon Staircase

Dragon Staircase

The huge colourful and fierce looking dragon, also known as ‘El Drac’ is located on the entrance stairway. Made using Gaudi's signature trencadis style, it is considered to be one of the most photographed features of the park.

Hypostyle Room

Hypostyle Room

The Hypostyle Room, originally designed to be the market of the estate, consists of 86 tall columns. The ceiling showcases white trecandís (mosaic) and four ceiling lamps, each representing the seasons of the year.

The Streets, Roads and Viaducts

The Park is interconnected with three viaducts designed by Gaudi - each five meter wide. They are named Pont de Baix, the Pont del Mig and the Pont de Dalt and were built to integrate the park's architecture into its surrounding nature.

Gardens of Austria

Gardens of Austria

Formerly a plant nursery, the area is called Garden of Austria because in 1977, Park Guell received a donation of trees from Austria. It is also where you will find the Gaudí House museum, one of the first houses in the park.

Nature Square

Nature Square

Nature Square or the terrace area is where you need to head to capture an amazing view of Barcelona. This open-air space was once known as the Greek Theatre and was built to host live shows on-stage.

The Porch of the Laundry

Porch of the Laundry

Porch of the Laundry is a walkway featuring slanting columns that were designed to mimic ocean waves. This route runs through a pine forest and is one of the best examples of organic architecture that Gaudi specialised in. 

Visitor Tips

  • To make the most of your visit, head to the park in the morning to avoid crowds. It also starts getting super hot after 1 PM.
  • Approximately 95% of the park area is accessible free of charge, and for the monumental zone, you can buy tickets.
  • There are very few eateries inside the park, so it’s recommended that you carry some snacks/beverages with you.
  • Exploring the entire park includes long walks and steep climbs so make sure to wear some comfortable sneakers or footwear.
  • The terrace is a great spot to capture sunsets and take stunning photographs.
  • Do not miss out on the Gaudí House Museum. Although it will cost you a few extra pounds, as access is not included in entry tickets to Park Guell, the tour through the house is worth it.
  • If you’re planning to use public transport, it’s recommended that you take the bus and not the train, as it’s faster and easier than walking uphill from the metro station.
