When Park Güell began to be built in 1900, Barcelona was a modern and cosmopolitan metropolis whose economy was based on the strength of its industry and which had over half a million inhabitants. Its walls had been knocked down nearly half a century earlier and the new city, the Eixample planned by engineer Ildefons Cerdà, had grown spectacularly from 1860 onwards, in what was the largest 19th century city development project in Europe.
Ildefons Cerdà had made a thorough study of the difficulties of modern growth within the walled Barcelona and the impact of technological changes, especially the railway. The plan for his Pla d’Eixample proposal increased the area of Barcelona tenfold, as the result of a practical vision of the city. Cerdà conceived the plan as a flexible instrument undertaken with a reformist spirit in order to foster the formation of a modern city that would be more effective, healthier and fairer.
Barcelona expanded very rapidly throughout the second half of the 19th century, with the Eixample spreading out over the plain. Its central area began to take shape as a large bourgeois centre, while development also advanced along its flanks, in the direction of the old manufacturing areas on the plain, with a more popular and industrial nature.
The Universal Exhibition of 1888 showed Europe and the world the dynamic thrust of Barcelona, capital of a Catalan nation being reborn, and boosted the quest for a new artistic language and idiom of urban representation. That explained the success of the Modernisme movement, very much in evidence at the heart of the Eixample, and the work of an architect as singular as Antoni Gaudí.
What time should I go for the visit?
It is recommended to arrive a few minutes in advance. But it is very important to be punctual, the park restricts access to 400 people who access every half hour so punctuality is required. Remember that because of this, tickets sell out very easily even during the purchase process. As the tickets are subject to availability, in case of not being able to access the selected time, we will send those of the next shift and always on the same day.
I have my tickets bought, do I have to go through the tickets office?
No, if you already have your tickets you must go to the access control point.
Do I print my tickets?
You can show the printed tickets or on your smartphone or tablet or printed. If you want to print them and you do not have a printer, you can go to the ticket office so they can print the tickets.
To what spaces will I have access?
With your ticket, you can visit all the spaces of Park Güell and the regulated area, including the Guard House, the Austrian Gardens, the Hipóstila Room, the portico of the Lavandera and Plaza de la Naturaleza. Remember that this entry does not include a visit to the Gaudí House Museum, which is located in the free access zone of Park Güell.
Can people with reduced mobility visit?
Yes. There is a route adapted for people with reduced mobility because the usual route has some difficulties. The Park also has 2 wheelchairs, if you want to use them, please ask for it in advance before your visit.
How long can I stay inside the enclosure?
You can be there for as long as you want. But once you leave, you will not be able to access again.
