Park Guell Tickets and Visitor Information + Skip Lines

| 140 comments

Update 13/03/20: Park Guell is closed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The initial closure is expected to last 15 days. For updates please check out my group I’m Off to Barcelona.

I’m sure you’d agree that when a wealthy industrialist employs the world’s greatest architect to construct paradise on earth it’s going to end up in tourist gold.

If you don’t there’s nearly 3 million paid tourists a year to back me up.

Yes, getting Park Guell tickets is about as standard as airport transport. Yet you wouldn’t know it. The complaints about lines from tourists range from whiny to hell-on-earth-like.

How can we avoid issues with the world’s most stunning urban park?

Reading my guide of course.

Already keen and ready? Click the button for an exclusive English guided tour:

PARK GUELL
Book my guided tour now

Park Guell History

This 17 hectare park (about 13 city blocks) on a rocky hill is one of the most spectacular urban parks in the world. It keeps watch over Barcelona from the hills above the Gracia district.

Park Guell was conceived in 1900 by wealthy industrialist Eusebi Guell. His intention was to create a lavish, Utopian housing development in the middle of a park using the world’s most cutting edge architecture.

Cue Antoni Gaudi.

The legendary Catalan architect was put in charge of designing the more than 60 luxury homes of the planned community over looking the city, far away from smoky factories. All with latest technology and a touch of art.

In the end the men couldn’t even sell the show house and construction was halted in 1914.

Gaudi moved into one of the houses in 1906 and lived there until 1926: it’s now the Gaudi House Museum. Ultimately the area was turned into a municipal garden in 1926.

UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1984.

What to See at Park Guell

Park Guell is made up of two areas: The Monumental Zone and the Free Zone.

All of the most recognized portions of the park will be found in the Monumental Zone while the Free Zone is more of a backyard garden.

The Monumental Zone

At the south side entrance on Carrer d’Olot you’ll see the park hemmed in by a rustic stone wall with its emblematic ceramic medallions bearing the name Park Guell.

The two trencadís-speckled buildings on either side that look a lot like gingerbread houses from Hanzel and Gretel were once the porter’s lodge complete with waiting room and telephone booth.

The twin-flight dragon stairway entrance is flanked by two grotto terraces, one of which was used for keeping horses. A journey up the stairway is as capricious as it is magnificent: you’ll encounter goblin shapes, Catalonian symbols, and the famous tile-shard mosaic dragon: the most famous image of the park.

It’s actually a salamander 😛

Further up the staircase you’ll find the Doric Temple (a forest made of 86 columns) which was intended to be the market of the estate. Thanks to its twisted columns it gives the impression of being on a patio built on tree roots.

Keep walking and you’ll get to the Banc de Tracadis, a long bench covered in ceramics created by Josep Maria Jujol, one of Gaudi’s closest contemporaries.

Here is the massive tile-decorated esplanade and centre-piece of the park called Plaça de la Natura (Nature Square). The view of the city from there is amazing.

The Free Zone

The Free Zone takes up 92.1% of the park so you’ll have a ton of terrain to explore for free.

In general the space is much more wild and garden-like: you’ll find a seemingly endless stream of sculpture-adorned winding paths creeping uphill and offering spectacular views of the city, unseen aside from a few rooftop bars.

You’ll also see some of the park’s original homes including the famous Gaudí House Museum: it was here that architect Antoni Gaudi lived from 1906-1925. In 1963 the house was turned into a museum about Gaudi and his life.

Careful: the Gaudi House Museum isn’t property of the park. You won’t be able to visit with a standard Park Guell ticket nor any Park Guell guided tour.

Tickets can be bought online via the official website.

Park Guell Tickets

Prices

On the 25th of October 2013 the price of Park Guell tickets went from zero to €7.00. The least picturesque part of the park remains free but the monumental part (described above) is not.

  • General ticket: €10.00
  • Kids (7-12): €7.00
  • 65+: €7.00
  • Disabled visitors€0.00 (with paid accompanying person, €6.00)
  • Kids under 7: €0.00

Careful: if you leave the paid area of the park you won’t be able to re-enter.

If you read my FAQ section you’ll see there are rumours about free entry to Park Guell if you’re really, really early around 7 am. Please take this advice with a grain of salt.

Buying Tickets Online

The advantages of buying your Park Guell tickets online are two-fold.

Firstly, you choose your own times. Buying tickets in advance online ensures you get the time slot you wish for which makes planning your day easier.

Secondly, there a no lines. Just print out your ticket or show your QR code on a smart phone at the access control point to get in.

Using a Tourist Pass

If you’re going to visit both Park Guell and Sagrada Familia church I suggest getting a discount tourist pass.

The best pass option including Park Guell tickets is the super-handy Barcelona City Pass. Not only do you get line-skipping entrance to Park Guell and Sagrada Familia but you also get a trip on the Bus Touristic.

It also gives you 20% discounts on virtually any other attraction including Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, Camp Nou, flamenco shows, walking tours, nightlife etc.

With this digital discount card all is done from home and you’ll skip lines everywhere:

sagrada familia passion façade under construction sagrada familia passion façade under construction
Saving 20% on attractions is just the beginning!

Ticket Windows

The logical and old school approach is to get your Park Guell tickets at ticket windows.

Be advised though: this is one of Barcelona’s biggest attractions and if you do this you’ll likely be waiting in line for upwards of an hour.

Also be advised that the maximum hourly visitor admittance is 400 people. This means that even after waiting in line you’ll like be assigned a time slot which could be anywhere from 1-4 hours later depending on crowds.

Whatever you do, book your Park Guell tickets online.

Park Guell Guided Tours in English

This fantastic Park Guell guided tour is offered exclusively by Barcelona tour legends Ticketbar: you won’t even find this on the official Park Guell website.

The tours here are in English with actual flesh and blood guides who are Gaudi experts.

This 90 minute tour runs Monday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The meeting point is right outside the park at 41 Carrer de Larrard.

With this tour you’ll avoid lines at the entrance and have a great education on one of the world’s best parks.

Prices: adults €31.50, children 10-17 are €27.50.

How to Get to Park Guell

Shuttle

Starting on April 1st 2019 the city of Barcelona offers a free return shuttle for Monumental Zone ticket holders.

The shuttle runs from Alfons X (L4) metro station during Park Guell opening hours.

The trip will last 10-15 minutes and run every 7 minutes.

Taxi

Since Park Guell is both out of the way and uphill this is a great chance to take advantage of a €5.00 discount on Spain’s taxi app program: Free Now (formerly MyTaxi).

You’ll save so much time and end up paying only about €5.00 or €6.00 from anywhere central, a great option if you’re traveling in large groups or with kids.

For more information see how to sign up with Free Now.

Bus and Metro

  • Bus 24 from Passeig de Gracia or Placa Catalunya will get to you right to the gates.
  • Bus 92 connects Park Guell to the sea and Sagrada Familia but expect a ten minute walk.
  • Metro stops Lesseps or Vallcarca on the green line L3 (15 minute uphill walk).
  • With the Bus Turistic. The bus leaves you a short walk from the park.
  • Taking a regular taxi should be between €10.00-15.00 from anywhere central.

If you’re still a bit confused on directions drop me a line below with a departure point for some custom advice.

How to Get to Park Guell from other Barcelona Attractions

  • Sagrada Familia: Walk to the Pg. de Sant Joan – Còrsega bus stop and grab bus V19.
    From here it’s about 20 minutes on the bus and you’ll get off at the Ramiro de Maeztu – C N Catalunya stop. It’s about 170 meters from the park entrance.
  • Casa Batlló: Exit the house and cross the street to take bus 24 (right outside the Mcdonald’s) and it’ll drop you off right at the park entrance. It’ll take about 35 minutes.
  • La Pedrera: Take a right on Passeig de Gracia when exiting the house and grab bus 24 right in front of the Gucci shop. The trip right to the entrance takes 30 minutes.
  • Camp Nou: Take the blue metro line from Badal to Diagonal and then take bus 24 at Passeig de Gracia. It’ll take about 50 minutes.

Park Guell Hours 2020

As a rule you should leave an hour for the monumental part and another hour to see the free part.

  • 1 Jan to 14 Feb 2020: from 8:30 to 17:30 (last entry at 16:30).
  • 15 Feb to 28 Mar 2020: from 8:30 to 18:00 (last entry at 17:00).

What’s the Best Time to Visit Park Guell?

Park Guell can’t be beat with the morning light so I advise the earlier the better.

Your best bet is getting Monumental Zone entry before 9:00 am and showing up about 30 minutes before to walk the free zone. The crowds won’t be any thinner during the day.

After I suggest walking back into the city. It’s downhill. Get a feel for the way locals live by having a carajillo (a shot of espresso with chosen liquor) in a random cafe. Then head to the Gracia district for brunch. You’ll have the whole day ahead of you.

If you just can’t get up then I recommend the later time slots toward closing time.

In summer I would strongly advise against going between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm as the sun (and crowds) could take you out!

Park Guell Map

The city has outlined 3 different routes to explore the park depending on which entrance you use.

It’s recommended to download or print the park map from the official Park Guell website to avoid getting lost and maximise time. Here you’ll also be able to download a free app with audio, photos, and an interactive map to really enhance the experience.

The app is available in 7 languages including English and is available for Android and iPhone.

Park Guell Hacks

  • Book Park Guell tickets online or you may be waiting hours.
  • Leave at least 50 minutes to travel there from the city centre.
  • Remember: there’s a 30 minute grace period for entry times (e.g 9:00 tickets admitted till 9:30).
  • With pre-booked tickets try and avoid entering at the main entrance (the west is less crowded).
  • Bring appropriate ID if you’ll be taking advantage of any discounts (senior, children etc.).
  • Bring comfortable shoes if you’re looking to go all the way to the top.
  • Visit in the evening for more comfortable temperatures and great sunset photos.
  • Amenities are overpriced and scarce: take your own food and water for a picnic.
  • Shade is at a premium so bring sunscreen in summer.
  • Those with limited mobility should arrive via taxi or Bus 24 to avoid uphill walks.

Park Guell FAQ

What time slots are available for the Monumental Zone?

You can select to enter at :00 or :30 every hour of the park’s opening hours (last entry 1 hour before close).

What happens if I’m late for my time slot?

You have 30 minutes courtesy to be admitted otherwise your tickets won’t be accepted – plan ahead!

Can I cancel or change my ticket booking?

No changes or refunds can be made with tickets bought at the official Park Guell website.

For guided tour tickets you may be able to contacting customerservice@ticketbar.nl.

How will I receive my tickets?

For both general admission and guided tours you’ll receive your tickets via email.

I didn’t receive my tickets, what now?

First of all make sure your tickets haven’t been caught in any spam filters. If you still can’t locate the tickets then you can email parkguell@bsmsa.cat.

Can I show my ticket on my smart phone or tablet?

Yes.

I can’t print my ticket and I don’t have a smart phone, what now?

Bring a piece of ID (and preferably your reservation #) to the ticket windows to be given your passes.

How long should I leave for the visit?

Including 30-45 minutes return travel time plus an hour each for the Monumental Zone and free zone I would leave 3.5 hours minimum.

I heard there was free entry to the Monumental Zone, is this true?

The workers don’t arrive to set up ticket barriers at the Calle d’Olot entrance until about 7:45 am. I’ve heard this means people can go right through into the Monumental Zone without paying, but please don’t quote me on it.

If you really can’t handle paying I would risk trying to get the free entry at this time. Even if you’re turned away you can still have a great excursion to the free zone.

If I haven’t booked my tickets online will I get in?

Yes and no. After waiting in potentially long lines you may be assigned a much later time slot or in busy cases be told to come back the next day.

Your best bet for tickets in this case is to buy your Park Guell entrance at the machines at Lesseps or Vallcarca metro stations. Here there are shorter lines and you won’t risk walking uphill for nothing.

Is Park Guell OK for disabled visitors or those with limited mobility?

Disabled visitors may have problems navigating the Monumental Zone due to its many steps and uneven paths. Any special access requirements should be sent to parkguell@bsmsa.cat

Get at Me in the Comments Below

Yes, I’m going to (desperately) ask you to consider me your friend in Barcelona.

That means you can ask me any question, no matter how ridiculous, about your upcoming holiday and I’m going to answer it! So whether it’s Park Guell guided tour tickets or just a place to get a good cup of tea know because I’m here for you.

Also don’t be afraid to join the Park Guell discussion by first giving me a like on Facebook and then joining my group I’m Off to Barcelona – here you can ask any questions, air out grievances, and chat with thousands of Barcelona travelers.

Anything goes!

      Hi Carol, Unfortunately being in a mostly residential neighbourhood you won't find many restaurants around... and if they are they are total tourist traps. I would stay clear of most but if you had to I would go for Bar Delicias or El Jardi de l'Apat. Ash

    Hi there! I'm going to Barcelona for my first time ever this June! We just bought Park Guell tickets online from their website. Our ticket slot is from 11:00 - 11:30 on a Wednesday. Knowing that it takes about 35-40 minutes by bus from our hotel to the park, when do you think we should depart for the park? Do you think we'll make our slot if we get there around 10:30 or 10:40? It sounds like the wait times are really long! Thanks so much, Emily

      Hi Emily, When I refer to long lines and wait times I'm referring to the unfortunate souls who arrive WITHOUT tickets... for the people who have tickets you can pretty much go right in. As such I wouldn't worry about this one bit. Shooting to get there at 10:30/10:40 is recommended though because it'll leave you a small amount of time to make up for any hiccups on the way... and if you're there early you can still go explore the Free Zone. Leaving between 9:45 and 10:00 sounds the best course of action to me. Ash

    My wife and I are just now beginning to make our Barcelona plans for the three days we are there prior to a cruise on May 18, and we are thankful for your site. We booked the City Pass today and reserved the Parc for 9 am on the 16th and the Familia for 5 pm that day (earliest time offered). We are staying at the Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona. Would you recommend the BCN card also for getting around? We are in the mid-to-late 60's and both have a few orthopedic problems, so extensive hiking won't be able to happen! I may besiege you with questions in the coming weeks!

      Also keep in mind with scenario one... you can simply just get a T-10 card which is interpersonal and gives you 10 rides for about €10.00 for your extra day or transport.

      Hi John, No worries about besieging me, that's what I'm here for ;) If you've got the two day Bus Turistic package with the City Pass keep in mind this can be used for your main transport... so I wouldn't recommend getting the Hola BCn transport card in this case. If you've got the 1 day Bus Turistic option then it wouldn't hurt to get the 48 hour Hola BCN card because you're a bit far out and will be requiring a lot of transport. My two cents :) Ash

    HI Ash If I am planning to get to the Park at 8:00am for opening do you think it's necessary to buy tickets in advance? I notice the earliest ticket I can buy online is for 9:00am. We are travelling in July. At 8:00am would we be able to just walk up to the counter and pay entrance fee and gain access straight away? Is there much of a difference in the ticket price to do it this way? Thanks so much - Laurie

      Hi Laurie, If you're going to go there for 8:00 you might as well go there for 7:00 because it's actually free at this time... there are less crowds... none of the barriers are set up etc. That said, if you want to go at 8 the link I provided only sells from 9:00 onwards but you can get the 8:00 slots here. I would strongly advise against just walking up... it seems an unnecessary risk... it could be that you're told to come back for a later time slot which is never good. Also, in summer it's not unheard of to have entire days sold out. Ash

        Fantastic Ash - thanks. I have just booked through ticketbar - seems easier that way. We are staying in El Born (Another fantastic recommendation of yours) and are planning to just uber or taxi to Park Guell for a 8:30 am opening. We are also booked at the Familia on the same day at 12:00 pm and thought that we would walk between. What sites, cafes etc would you recommend we stop off at on the way? - thank you so much. Laurie

          Hi Laurie, That's great! Keep in mind Uber no longer operates in the city so you'll have to take the normal city taxis :( That said, if you download the app used with these taxis you can get a €5.00 credit on your first ride... you can find out how in my taking a taxi in Barcelona article. You've left a decent buffer between the two big attractions which is good... honestly I would wander down into the Gracia neighbourhood and check out some of the big squares like Plaça del Sol... having a drink or coffee at Sol Soler there is one of my favourite pasttimes :) Ash

    Hi Ash, I was planning on taking Bus 24 from Placa Catalunya to Park Guell. Would you recommend getting off at the Trav de Dalt - Torrent de les Flors stop and walk up to the main entrance, or would it be better to get off at the Carretera del Carmel stop and walk to the East Side? I was hoping to explore the monumental zone first. thanks in advance for your advice!

      Ash
      Hi Steve, I've done both approaches and can tell you only that the Trav de Dalt stop involves a bit of an uphill climb through some very ordinary residential area with some touristy shops. That's to say, there isn't much to see on the walk so I don't see why anybody would do it unless they had some specific business there. With the Carretera del Carmel stop you'll be forced to walk through the Free Zone to get across to the Monumental Zone... there's a path that will take you directly there but it would involve 'showing' you much of the Free Zone. If you wanted to leave it completely unexplored and see the Monumental Zone first there's no shame getting off at Trav de Dalt... it's just that on its own it's a bit of an unnecessary hike, in my opinion... your choice!

    Hi Ash, Thanks for posting all the tips and info! We are going to be in BCN for about 4 days and Sagrada Familia/Park Gruell is definitely on our list. With the Gaudi Bundle, is there an option for the guided tour for Sagrada, or is it just the audio tour? Also, I understand that with the bundle, entrance times are only after 2pm for Sagrada. Is that true? If I'm looking for the guided Sagrada tour and entrance to Park Gruell, should I purchase them separately? Thanks, Ava

      Hi Ava, Unfortunately the Gaudi Bundle only offers the audio guides and does not include a guided tour... it is not flexible in this way since the guided tour is a lot mor expensive. That said, there's no shame in booking them separately. And yes... since these are considered general admission tickets it would follow the standard 2019 rules of having to be after 2 pm. Ash

        Thanks Ash! On another note, since we are coming in during Holy Week (arriving on Good Friday through Easter Monday), I know a lot of stores, sites and restaurants are closed on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Guess I should’ve planned a little better, but I do understand most museums are open on those days. Also, I have heard that it’s a great time to visit with all the festivities of the holiday. Any tips on how to make the most of or limited time there to get in the major sites with the holiday schedules? I already know I have to go to Boqueria on Saturday since that’ll be the only day open during those 3 days. Are most restaurants open? Which are the absolute must try eateries while there? Thanks!

          Hi Ava, Yes indeed it can be complicated time in a catholic country where the hours suck even when it's not a holiday ;) Not to worry though as in my article on visiting Barcelona during Easter I've got a list of the hours... many have already been updated for 2019 but some haven't, and of course some are subject to change. For this reason I'd check back the week before leaving just to be sure. For restaurants it's a big money maker for them so you won't find a lot closed... in the article I've listed above I've got a list of some of the best local Easter dishes. I would seek out some of the best restaurants in Barcelona or the best tapas in Barcelona to get in on the action. My favourite two restaurants are Arume and Somorrostro and that's a good thing because it's common to eat fish over Easter... and these places serve a lot and do it well! Can't go wrong with either :) Ash

    Hi Ash, What a great site this is! I'm visiting Barcelona with my 18 month old baby over Easter this year and I think I would like to see Parc Guell on Saturday morning. We will have a stroller and hope to walk at least the trip back. Is there anywhere safe there to leave the stroller if we don't want to take it through the parc with us? Thank you in advance! :) Jess

      Hi Jess, Thanks so much for your compliments :) Regardless of it being a park up in the hills, the area surrounding the park is quite dense with many apartment blocks, people etc. and so it probably wouldn't be recommended to leave it anywhere. I haven't found any info on whether they'd have a place set aside for stuff like this but you could contact them here: parkguell@bsmsa.cat and hopefully get an answer. Ash

    Love all the info you provided. I can't wait for my trip to begin!! What do I do about cell phones? I don't want to be charged an outrageous price by my current US cell phone provider, so what are the options of bringing my phone there and being able to use it for your audioguide, or to use it for internet purposes, or to use it for Cabify? Thanks. Lee

      Hi Lee, Getting your own SIM card/European number is actually quite easy so I wouldn't worry too much... as long as your US cell phone is unlocked (you can call the provider and usually get it unlocked for free) it can take any European pay-as-you-go sim. If you're really wanting to get it right away there are tobacco shops and newsstands in the airport which sell basic sim card packages. The most common are with Orange or Mundo... if you're looking for data only and not to spend too much I recommend the Mundo one. It's really quite simple and super standard in Europe, more so than in Canada or the States. You can be up and running in 5 minutes :) Ash
