A compulsory stop on any visit to Barcelona is Parc Güell, the urban forest designed by Antonio Gaudí. Together with the Sagrada Familia, it is the most famous work of the architect from Reus and it is included in every guide to Barcelona for any weekend, four-day and week-long trip.

A visit to Parc Güell is an incredible experience due to the colourful designs combined with natural beauty created by Gaudí. It is the ideal place to visit with family, friends or for a romantic day out.

Below are 7 top tips for visitors to make the most of their trip to Parc Güell:

– Check out the official Parc Güell website: On www.parkguell.cat the most up-to-date information can be found about Parc Güell.

– Must-see: In Parc Güell it is easy to lose all sense of time and get lost in its many labyrinths, but it is essential not to miss out on the spectacular colours and shapes on the dragon steps at the entrance, the hypostyle room, the room with a hundred columns and the Algarrobo viaduct.

– For group visits of between 10 and 70 people, visitors could benefit from an organized visit by reserving a single group ticket up to three months’ in advance. When reserving the ticket, visitors must pay 20% of the price in advance and then 7 days’ before the visit the remaining 80%.

– Reserve a parking space: Parc Güell has a car park for coaches and we recommend reserving in advance in order to avoid disappointment. It costs 6 hours for an hour and a half.
