One of many notable city structures designed by famed architect Antoni Gaudí, Parc Guell is a garden complex built between 1900 and 1914. World Heritage–listed, this complex is noted for being one of the largest architectural structures in this part of Europe. Though it features some of the finest examples of Gaudí’s creativity, for many visitors the highlight is not the exquisite architecture, but the sweeping views. Just inside the main entrance is the interpretive visitor center, featuring an exhibit about Gaudí’s building methods, as well as displays on the history of the park. Wooded and laced with footpaths, the park attracts over 4 million visitors each year. The park can be reached on foot, but if you wish to avoid a vigorous uphill walk, hitch a ride on the public bus.

The guided tour was well worth the knowledge obtained. Went middle of January with parts under reconstruction so some photo opportunities were not great, but the city view from the large garden were amazing. The mosaic work is beautiful all the way around.
An excellent tourist attraction with amazing views of mosaic patterned monuments and park. It is full of architectural grandeur and beauty, and is full of colors and life. There are lot of activities for kids to keep them busy. You can sit and relax and have a nice day out with family. There are restaurants and eating areas, and sitting benches in the park. It is easy to reach by metro or bus.
