Step outside and explore the beautiful and serene Park Güell, where you can enjoy impressive views of the city out to the ocean, whilst surrounded by an impressive mix of natural beauty and intricate design.
Park Güell is a unique garden complex adorned by an array of distinctive architecture.
Skilfully designed by renowned architect Gaudì, the park’s unusual sculptures serve to compliment its tranquillity and create a somewhat magical and mystical ambience.
With Barcelona Coaches as your transport provider you can spend as long as you like in this fabulous setting.
The park dates back to 1900, when Count Eusebi Guell bought a plot of land with a beautiful view of the city and hired Gaudi to create houses for the rich within beautifully landscaped grounds.
However, the project was abandoned in 1914 and in 1922, the estate became a public park, enabling everyone to explore the roads, walkways and gateways Gaudi had already constructed.
This expansive area has numerous attractions designed to capture the imagination, such as the Hansel-and-Gretel gatehouses. Enjoy beautiful views of the city and sea from the majestic Greek theatre, or do a little people watching from the comfort of the snake-like mosaic bench extending around the main plaza.
Sala Hipóstila is a great place to cool down. The building, which is home to Greek forest style columns, was originally designed as a marketplace and is often filled with classical musicians.
Take some magical photos by the gingerbread style houses, enjoy a picnic by the natural mosaics or spend time with the famous water dragon. Park Güell is a great tour location for everyone with a whole host of attractions waiting to be discovered.
Barcelona Coaches are able to coordinate a guided tour of Park Güell, ensuring that you visit all of the recommended points of interest and find out in-depth detail about the history and character of the park.
Montjuic is a peaceful and relaxed site in a serene location overlooking the city and is home to a wealth of historical significance. The medieval Catalan name Montjuic translates as ‘the hill of the Jews'.
Breathe in the sea air and admire the boats bobbing up and down on the shimmering blue Mediterranean waters at Barcelona’s historical port.
A trip to Barcelona would not be complete without a visit to the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s greatest masterpiece. The amazing Basilica, still to be completed, is a truly stunning piece of architecture.
