Highlights covered on your Park Güell guided tour

Park Guell Guided Tours

The Greek Theatre or Nature Square

The vast esplanade in the heart of Park Güell, originally known as the Greek Theatre but more recently renamed Plaça de la Natura, is located in the heart of the park. It is partially buried in the rock and partially supported on top of the hypostyle room.

The entrance & the Porter's Lodge

The primary entrance to Park Güell is on Carrer d'Olot on the south side. The Porter's Lodge is made up of two pavilions on either side. The one on the left served as a porter's lodge, complete with a waiting area and telephone booth, while the one on the right served as the porter's home.

The Hypostyle Room

The Hypostyle Room, which might be utilized as a market area for the estate, is reached by the grand entrance stairwell. It is composed of 86 striated columns in the Doric style. The colonnade is topped by an architrave, which supports the undulating bench.

The Austria Gardens

The zone was used as a municipal plant nursery when the Park Güell was established into a public park. This section of the park has a distinct appearance from the rest of the park, and it was given its name in 1977 as a result of a tree donation from Austria.

The Dragon Stairway

A dual set of steps rises from the entry esplanade, flanked by two walls with merlons that form terraces, behind which there are two grottos. The stairs are divided into three sections, each with a fountain that previously drew water from a tank beneath the hypostyle room.

The Laundry Room Portico

This pathway travels through a pine grove, with the portico backed up against an unworked stone retaining wall. A double colonnade functions as a buttress, and the portico takes the shape of a giant wave atop slanting columns. It is one of the most beautiful instances of Gaudi's organic architecture.
