- Park Güell Tour at 10.00h: Meeting point at 9.45h Souvenirs Shop, located in Olot Street num 12, in front of main Entrance of Park Güell.
One of the not-to-miss locations is the extraordinary Park Güell which is unique in the world! This architectural marvel, created in the middle of nature by Antoni Gaudí, was commissioned by Count Güell, who wanted him to design an elegant estate with family homes. Today it is a public park and it belongs to the city's heritage, which has also been declared UNESCO’s World heritage site. When you go to Park Güell, you should enter by the big staircase dominated by the dragon decorated with mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as "trencadís". This dragon is one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Originally written Park Güell (using the English spelling), the park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaking, "trencadís"-covered bench. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns, like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí's work, like no other, unites nature and architecture. After you finish the visit in the Park Güell our guide will escort you to the bus and take you to our office next to Sagrada Familia, where you need to check in for the next tour and then you have free time to join around the area.
