Complete Tour Description
Save your precious vacation time with our express, Skip-the-Line tour of Park Güell! With private, air-conditioned return transport from the city center, you’ll travel in style to explore the marvels of Antoni Gaudí’s artistic creations.
Hear the Park’s Story from an Expert
Start your tour at a convenient location near the Sagrada Familia Basilica, from which point you’ll travel in comfort by private coach to Park Güell. On the way to the park, your guide will bring you back in time with interesting stories about the early 20th century, when Gaudí was first commissioned for this project. Park Güell was originally meant to be a gated community for Barcelona’s wealthy inhabitants; Gaudí tapped into all aspects of his creative and architectural genius to design the park and residential community. But the original idea didn’t catch on with the Barcelonians, which means we now have the opportunity to experience this public work - showing Gaudí at his most creative.
Skip the Line into the Monumental Zone
Upon arriving, your guide will give you an overview of the park before taking you to the Monumental Zone. Here, you’ll skip the line and enter to see the famous Serpentine Bench and mosaic salamander, ‘El Drac’. Enjoy an hour of unguided free time to wander at your leisure, taking spectacular photos of Gaudí’s creations or imagining what life could have been like for residents in the open-air marketplace and public square.
See It All with Time to Spare
After the tour, you are free to stay in the park on your own to wander for longer through the fantasy world of Gaudí, or climb to the summit of the hills for stunning panoramic views. Alternatively, once your free time is completed, you can return to the center of the city, Plaça Catalunya, on our comfortable coach.
