Park Güell is divided into two zones: Monumental Zone and the Forest Zone. Park Guell no longer has a Free Zone. The whole of Park Güell is open to visitors. Since 2013, however, the entrance to the monumental area has been regulated to prevent overcrowding.
This is an area in the park that contains the most important and iconic features, including the entrance pavilion, staircase, dragon fountain and Gaudi's house.

The park is divided into two zones: the unrestricted, wooded area and the restricted zone that is home to the monuments and sculptures that Park Guell is famous for. The restricted zone is also referred to as the Monumental Zone.
Given that the Monumental Zone of the park has entry reserved for ticket holders with only a limited number of visitors allowed in (1400 persons each half hour), we recommend advance reservation and purchase of tickets to guarantee entry to the restricted area.
