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.
