Map of Park Guell, Barcelona
Built in the early 19th century, Park Güell is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Barcelona. Parked in the outskirts of the city on Carmel Hill, this masterpiece is designed by 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, blast of colours, lots of mosaic art, 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.
