Bypass the entrance lines and head inside with your guide. With this Exclusive, you’ll be among the first of the day to go inside, so you can enjoy the park before the majority of visitors arrive. Stroll with your guide around the extraordinary buildings as you hear the park’s history. Learn how it began life in 1900 when architect Antoni Gaudí was commissioned to design a residential area for Barcelona’s elites. The project was later abandoned, and then finally, turned into a park in 1922.
Admire the famous mosaic-coated dragon on the entrance stairway, and the Hansel-and-Gretel-like gatehouses. Then, follow the garden trails to see the park's highlights as your guide explains how Gaudí’s love of curved lines was inspired by nature. By arriving before the main crowds, you’ll enjoy better photo opportunities and a quieter atmosphere than later in the day. See showpieces such as the Hall of Columns with its stone columns and upper terrace lined with a winding mosaic bench; and marvel at more of Gaudí’s creations, including viaducts, porticoes and statues.
Your tour finishes at the park however so you can explore the rest of the area at your own leisure.
