Just stunning... the views as well as Gaudi's architecture! If you are a fan of Gaudi, this place is a must see. Palau Guell is also located here - Gaudi's design of Guell's home.
Wear comfortable shoes if you like to explore - there are lots of stairs and trails involved for walking/exploring around the park.
Also, take note of the fountains throughout the park which allows you to wash your feet - no stinky feet allowed in Europe. JK
Best way to get here is by bus - they drop you off right by the entrance/gate. Trains will drop you off a certain spot and you'll have to walk a few kilometers uphill.
Tip: Purchase your admission tickets prior to visiting and get there right when it opens for better photo ops. Less crowd and you get the museum to yourself.
Tip for runners: Bring your shoes and gear... running along the park will leave you in awe. Try to do it before the sun rises or run when the sun is about to set (but that may be difficult coz the sun sets pretty late in Barcelona).
I loved going here. We were just here in December, 2013. I loved all the ornate mosaics, on the salamander and all the walls of the main center of the park. I took a million pictures around here, beautiful views. There are a few small houses you can check out, but would have to wait in line. We got some beautiful photos from inside the houses as well. There are paths to walk along as well- covered with pushy street vendors, so beware.
Only downfall is that we attempted to get here by train. There is no super close spot, and we had to walk basically up a mountain, it felt like, and through some residential areas, that had me nervous that we wouldn't be going the right way. They could use some more signage directing people that way. It was a really enjoyable experience over all though.
Great if you like Gaudi (we didnt but still enjoyed it). The buildings were really innovative, bright and creative. However the museum didnt really show much about the architects life and how he had developed his skills.
Really touristy, but its a must see if youre in Barca.
This visit is un unforgettable for me ! I visited this whis my girlfriendduring the summer 2010 and I wil remember of this monument all of my life. Beautifull museum !
