Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill, in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Carmel Hill belongs to the Serra de Collserola mountain range. Park Güell is located in the neighbourhood of La Salut, in the district of Gràcia, and borders the neighbourhood of El Coll.
Park Güell was designed by Antoni Gaudí, a famous Catalan architect, between 1900 and 1914. The park was originally intended to be a residential development, but it was never completed. In 1923, the park was acquired by the city of Barcelona and opened to the public.
Park Güell is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Barcelona. It is known for its colorful mosaics, its serpentine benches, and its iconic dragon. The park is also home to a number of Gaudí’s other works, including the Casa Milà and the Sagrada Familia.
If you are planning to visit Park Güell, be sure to purchase your tickets in advance. The park can get very crowded, especially during the summer months.
