What to do in Barcelona? Visiting Park Güell of course! Many years ago, Eusebi asked his friend Gaudí to develop a city park. And so Park Güell happened … more or less. Only 3 of the originally planned 60 houses were built. But that shouldn’t spoil the fun. Welcome to Park Güell and the wonderful world of Gaudí.
The first part of Park Güell is free. Although you can’t enter the fantasy world of Gaudí there, it’s still the best place for a panoramic view of Barcelona.
Don’t wanna miss the touristic part? Then you pay € 8 for an admission ticket.
Travel tip: Book your ticket in advance. That way you don’t have to spend hours at the box office. Only a limited number of visitors may enter at a time, so make sure you’re present at the hour of your choice!
Extra tip: Don’t throw your ticket away! At the exit of Park Güell you’ll have to show it again (I totally panicked when I couldn’t immediately find my ticket in my extra large handbag).
What else do you need to know about the city park? Well … There’s lots and lots of tourists, especially in the paying part of the park. But no worries, it’s totally worth it.
