Why locals recommend it
Gaudí’s magical garden park, opened in 1926, is a huge space full of fascinating modernist designs, garden features, and amazing views. It’s a perfect day trip, ideal if you want to get lost and let your imagination fly. Come early or late in the day to avoid the crowds, and bring a snack to eat while enjoying the views! As a curiosity, you should know entrepreneur Eusebi Güell gave Gaudí the assignment of drawing up plans for developing an estate for well-off families on this large property. He wanted to recreate the British residential parks, which is why he named it Park Güell, in English.

Big hilly park within the city that, besides having spectacular views of the city and sea, is chock full of Gaudi's fantastical mosaic creations (such as the famous mosaic dragon), surreal rock structures, even a museum.
