ProExcellent Gaudi works, lovely park, stunning views...

ConsCrowds, it's a trek getting there

Parc Guell in Barcelona is a park that was commissioned by Eusebi Guell as a place for Barcelona’s aristocracy and it is a brilliant showcase of Antonio Gaudi’s work, having been heavily designed by the later. We visited on a lovely hot summer’s day, which is definitely the best time to go...

Prothe square and mosaic sculptures

Consa little difficult to get to

If you’ve read my previous review you’ll know that earlier this year I found myself in Barcelona for a meeting with work and I tagged on a couple of days to allow myself to explore the city further. This was not my first visit to Barcelona – in the last three years I have visited 4 times either...

ConsOn a steep hill, can get very busy, lots of people...

The various works of celebrated Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi is one of the highlights of Barcelona but I find that it is quite difficult to enjoy and appreciate some of the buildings partly because of the area in which they are situated and partly for reasons such as the huge amount of...

“A peaceful park in the city”

published 09/07/2009

ProIt's a beautiful place and it's free!

ConsNone

During my recent visit to Barcelona I visited Parc Guell, another place on my 'must visit' list, and a place I did not get to visit when last in Barcelona a year ago. We visited Parc Guell as part of a city tour by coach and spent an hour there, walking around in the hot sunshine, although I must...

“A Unique Experience”

published 29/09/2011

Proamazing to look at, free

Cons-

This summer, I decided to go on holiday somewhere less further afield which is why I settled on a week long city break to Barcelona. I have never done mainland Spain before, so was very excited and I'd heard so much about this city having a lot to offer. The city is popular with tourists and I...

ProBeautifull place to visit

ConsStrange localtion

The famous Park Guell was built between 1900 and 1914 for Eusebi Guell. It was supposed to be an English style residential garden in the city. It was not much of a success back then and became the property of City Hall in 1923. Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi who is responsible for many of the...

“Fantastic Mosaic Park!”

published 05/07/2005

ProColorful mosaic! Scenes from the fairy tales!

ConsNeed to hike a slope to reach the park!

Hello friends, i am a mosaic artist and always adore Gaudi. I went to Barcelona to worship Gaudi last month. It was a fantastic trip. Barcelona is so much fun! The most remarkable place is the Park Guell. It is full of mosaic. The bus only takes you to a spot and you have to climb up a slope in...

“Escape with me.”

published 03/10/2004

ProPeace in the heart of the city.

ConsNone.

The Parc Guell is deep in the heart of Barcelona, and for those who do not speak Spanish, the best route is to take a taxi from any central point of the city, which will cost around ten euros, and the for peace of mind, and for parking it is well worth the fare, although parking can be found at...

“Guell worth a visit”

published 14/04/2001

ProV relaxing

ConsUp a hill

If I had to name something that I thought would make cities more appealing to tourists, up until I visited Gaudi's Parc Guell last summer a large mosaic Salamander would not have been one of my first choices. I have since learnt better. To visit Barcelona and not see some of the work of Antonio...

“BS Dos - Gaudí-land”

published 17/04/2001

ProBetter than Disneyland!

ConsWeather dependent

Barcelona may not have a Disneyland, but it certainly has a magical park to call its own - Gaudí's Parc Güell. Antoni Gaudí was born in Reus, Spain in 1852. He studied at Barcelona's School of Architecture and went on to become the world's most famous exponent of Catalan modernist architecture, a...

“Parc Guell”

published 20/09/2011

ProDifferent, interesting

ConsNone

In my opinion no visit to Barcelona is complete without a trip to Parc Guell. Parc Guell is the architectural garden complex designed by the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. Gaudi was born on the 25th June 1852 in Barcelona and died on the 10th June 1926. He was a the best-known representative of...

ConsThe main entrance and terrace get busy so go early

Parc Guell is a fabulous place to visit. You can't go to Barcelona and not see something by Gaudi, even if just by accident, but this is a must. We spent a whole morning there, just wandering around and chilling out. For those of you that know nothing about it, it was originally planned as a...

“Gaudi's garden”

published 21/10/2012

ProNo entrance fee apart from Gaudi museum

ConsNA

Commissioned by Eusebi Guell, this project is where Gaudi turned his hand to landscape gardening. Eusebi wanted it to be built as an utopia residential complex for the rich far away from the city with landscaped ground. Work started on the Pelada mountainside in 1900, which used to be the...

ConsConfusing to find location

If I could I would attach the pictures I took at the fantastic park to really empathise my experience! I was stunned by the detailed mosaic work applied to the parks features. It's hard to believe so much effort has gone to it! As soon as you walk into the park there is a smack in your face water...
