What to expect

Walk through Park Güell and let the magic of Gaudí surprise you! This architectural marvel, created by Antoni Gaudí in the middle of nature, was commissioned by Count Güell, who wanted him to design an elegant estate with family homes. It is now a public park and it has become of Barcelona's major landmarks, famous worldwide. Your tour guide will take you through the park and tell you all about the artists and the park's history.

When you reach Park Güell, you'll enter by the big staircase dominated by the dragon decorated with a mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as trencadís, one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Originally written Park Güell (using the English spelling), it is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, trencadís-covered bench. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns, like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí's work unites nature and architecture. Park Guell also has a small house in the park which Gaudí lived in at one stage.

Thanks to the help of the tour guide you'll understand more about the architecture and the artworks of the park, seeing with your own eyes the magic of Gaudí.
