How to get to Park Guell

Being one of the most popular spots in the city, there are multiple modes of transport plying to Park Güell from all parts of the city.

You can take a Metro to Lesseps or Vallcarca station on L3. Both the stations are 15-20 minutes away from the park and you may want to take a taxi or a bus from the station as the route to the park is uphill.

If you are taking the bus, Lines 24 and 92 halt at Carretera del Carmel-Park Güell, which is right across the park’s main entrance. Routes H6 and 32 will drop you at Travessera de Dalt which is 10 minutes from the park. Take the escalator at Carrer Sant Josep de la Muntanya or go to the Carrer de Larrard entrance to reach the park.

You can also hire a taxi to directly reach the park from your place of stay.

Park Guell Entrances

Park Güell is situated off Carrer d’Olot, and you can enter the park from any of its three entrance gates.

  • The main entrance to the park lies at the intersection of Carrer de Larrard and Carrer d’Olot.
  • The entrance gate on Carretera del Carmel is close to the coach parking space meant for tourists.
  • Passatge de Sant Josep de la Muntanya is the third entrance that can be reached through an elevator.

  • Don’t engage in any activity that might damage or deteriorate the property in any way.

Quick Tips for visiting Park Guell

  • If you are planning to explore all parts of Park Guell, you may be spending hours walking and trekking through its grounds and archways. The rewarding experience will be just as tiring, and that’s why, you need to keep yourself fed and hydrated.
  • The mornings are the best time to visit Park Güell as it is usually less crowded and the weather stays pleasant. Visiting the park in the afternoon may not be such a great idea, specially during the summer months as the sun shines a little too bright here in the Mediterranean. If you don’t mind staying till late evening, find a comfy spot on one of the rooftop benches and witness the golden charm taking over Barcelona’s skyline as the sun sets on the horizon.
  • You will thank us later for this one! The park is on a hill and you will be walking a lot because it is huge- two reasons why you should wear comfortable clothes and sturdy footwear on your day out to Park Güell. It may help if you carry along a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen lotion.
  • We recommend that you take the bus while going to the park as it is faster than walking uphill from the metro station. You can walk to the Metro Station on your way back and get a feel of the locality in the evening.
