How to Get from Sagrada Familia to Park Guell by Bus
Although most tourists are more comfortable on the Barcelona metro, we’ll start with the bus.
This the superior option, as the bus brings you almost right to the door and cuts down on walking.
From the Sagrada Familia, you’ll need to walk for 5 minutes to the intersection of Passeig Sant Joan and Carrer Corsega.
From here, you’ll grab the V19 bus and ride for 8 stops to Ana María Matute – CN Catalunya.
Park Guell is just a two-minute walk from the stop – and unlike the metro, you won’t have to walk straight up the hill in the summer heat.
The journey takes around 28 minutes, although it varies depending on traffic.
