One of many notable city structures designed by famed architect Antoni Gaudí, Parc Guell is a garden complex built between 1900 and 1914. World Heritage–listed, this complex is noted for being one of the largest architectural structures in this part of Europe. Though it features some of the finest examples of Gaudí’s creativity, for many visitors the highlight is not the exquisite architecture, but the sweeping views. Just inside the main entrance is the interpretive visitor center, featuring an exhibit about Gaudí’s building methods, as well as displays on the history of the park. Wooded and laced with footpaths, the park attracts over 4 million visitors each year. The park can be reached on foot, but if you wish to avoid a vigorous uphill walk, hitch a ride on the public bus.

Great place to have a good view of the city. We did not pay to get entry but you can see plenty from the outside and anyway there is a lot of construction going on blocking a lot of views. Would recommend it for a stroll but don't pay 10€ to get in!
I'm really disappointed because I thought that the entry to the stairwell, with the lizard that is really well-known, was free, well it isn't it's 10€ per adult (from 12 up) and 7€ per senior or child. Besides that the free part of the park it's a normal green park nothing more, because the more interesting parts of the park are all paid until 9pm because from 9pm or more the entry is completely free
