Why locals recommend it
The most legendary of Barcelona’s parks is also its oldest. People love to rent the little rowboats and paddle the lake. And there’s a spectacular greenhouse full of gigantic tropical plants. So much stuff to see, including a 19th-century gazebo, the Castle of the Three Dragons, and a waterfall designed by Josep Fontserè and Antoni Gaudí. There’s a great colony of more than 100 herons that occupy the park. You’ll spot them all over, nesting in the trees or just walking around.

About Pablo Ruiz Picasso the museum is essential to understand his formative years. The genius of the young artist is revealed to us through more than 3,500 works that make up this permanent collection.”

“Initially conceived to be a garden city for Barcelona’s wealthy families, the plan was aborted in 1914. Nowadays, the park holds a magic air that comes from Gaudi's personal tallent and creativity. From November to March, Park Guell is open between 08:30 AM - 06:30 AM. From April to October, it is open between 08:00 AM - 07:30 PM. A good tip to avoid crowds of tourists is to go during the night. You'll find yourself nearly alone with the park to freely explore.”
