Is Parc Guell worth visiting?

Is Park Guell worth visiting?

Yes Park Guell is worth visiting. Is it a 'must-see'? In our opinion, perhaps not a 'must-see'. This is mostly because of the location. It's on the edge of the city, which makes a visit quite time consuming.

Park Guell was designed by Antoni Gaudí, so if you are a big fan of Gaudi and architecture in general, then it's definitely worth a visit. 

Park Guell is a unique and whimsical construction that reflects Gaudi's love of nature and his interest in magical architecture.

Park Guell is characterized by colorful mosaics, intricate stonework, and organic shapes that seem to blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings. Visitors can stroll along winding paths, climb stairs adorned with playful sculptures, and enjoy panoramic views of the city.

The park also features several notable buildings, including a colorful lizard sculpture and a large terrace that offers breathtaking views of the city skyline.

Overall, Park Guell is a must-see attraction for anyone interested in art, architecture, and the beauty of nature.

Parts of the park are free to visit and walk in, but the famous Gaudí structures are in the 'monumental zone' and not free.

We also recommend buying 'skip-the-line' Park Guell tickets to avoid long lines as admission to the monument area is limited to 400 people an hour at certain times of day.

In the free area there is a nice view point with a view of the city and many paths to stroll, but in our opinion, you can find better views of Barcelona from either Montjuic hill or Tibidabo hill

If you visit Park Guell, then you might also consider visiting the Gaudí Experience which is near Park Guell.

So to summarize, if you are only in Barcelona for 1 or 2 days, then Park Guell could be missed. If you have 3 days or more then Park Guell is absolutely worth a visit.
