North of Gràcia and about 4km from Plaça de Catalunya, Park Güell is where Gaudí turned his hand to landscape gardening. It is an enchanting place consisting of an entrance with an amazing dragon fountain adorned in beautiful coloured tiling, 3km of roads and walks, amazing stone structures, beautiful views over Barcelona towards the coast, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings including a plaza and two Hansel-and- Gretel gatehouses.
Park Güell has 2 different areas: the Monumental Zone, which requires the purchase of a ticket, and the free access area which is open to all visitors at no charge. The tickets for visiting the Monumental Zone do not include the Gaudi House Museum which is the house Gaudi lived in at one stage and contains interesting furniture also designed by him. TOP TIP – It is always advisable to book tickets in advance, especially if you wish to have a guided visit.
