During your privately guided tour, learn the story behind this unfinished masterpiece that has remained under construction since 1882.

Designed by Antoni Gaudí—the leading architect of Catalan modernism—it is now a public park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An imaginative outdoor playground with incredible views of Barcelona, Park Güell is filled with whimsical architecture including surrealist stone structures and colorful mosaics that reflect Antoni Gaudí’s organic style.
