Description

When Eusebi Güell and Antoni Gaudí teamed up to create a plush housing complex in the outskirts of Barcelona, they didn’t know that their project was doomed to failure. What’s more, they didn’t expect that this would be the first step in creating a stunning park that would become one of Gaudi’s most iconic works.

Listen to fascinating stories, based on an award-winning storytelling concept, and gain great insights into the most iconic landmark of Barcelona. Start your tour from outside of the park, find your way towards the entrance and waltz through the countless architectural elements and unique garden systems the park has to offer.

This is an unmissable opportunity to experience at your own pace Park Guell with a captivating audio tour on your phone.
