If you are heading to Barcelona, make sure you visit Parc Güell. It is a beautiful park designed by Architect Antoni Gaudi. It is one of the most popular destinations, and one of the most Instagram-worthy spots in Barcelona.
How To Get Here?
There are several ways to get here. You can take the metro, a bus or take a taxi. We opted to ride the taxi, since we did not want to walk and we also had limited time. The taxi fare was not that bad.
When Is The Best Time To Visit?
I advise you to visit the park first thing in the morning. We went there an hour after it opened, and there were already lot of people. Try to beat the crowd.
Be one with nature while appreciating the historical park. It has been a World Heritage site since 1984.
Bring your own bottled water, fan and towel when you visit, especially in the summer. It was scorching hot when we went to the park, good thing we came prepared. You can also bring some snacks if you are planning to stay inside the park for a long time.
Don’t forget to bring a camera too! The park offers a magnificent view of Barcelona. In fact, the whole park is a magnificent work of art. Sit down, relax, enjoy the view and capture a photo (or two) to share to your family and friends.
Where To Buy Tickets?
If you can, book your tickets in advance. You can go to their website, to buy the tickets. I recommend this especially during summer time. We went to Barcelona last minute so we didn’t book it in advance, and it was sold out in the website. We had to check everyday to see if any time slots will open up, and luckily we were able to get tickets on our last day in Barcelona. My friend and I opted for the self-guided tour, but they also offer guided tours. Be sure to be there about 10-15 minutes before your purchased time slot. The tickets are about 10 Euros per adult.

Immerse yourself in the beautiful architecture of Gaudi.
What To Wear?
Wear comfortable clothes and footwear. Walking around the park is nice, there are flat surfaces, but there are also stairs, and slopes.
For me, every little spot here is instagram-worthy! We were here for about two hours. If given another chance, I will definitely go back. Indeed, it is one of the must visit places in Barcelona! 😉
