Answers to recurring doubts

Park Güell has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The regulated area is the most vulnerable and at the same time receives the most visitors.

Our goal is to find a balance between tourist activities and social uses, more than anything so that local residents from the adjacent neighbourhoods are able to enjoy the park in peace.

Consequently, requests which do not relate to scientific purposes or training linked to our heritage will not be granted authorisation.

If you believe your request meets the criteria set out above, please contact us at permisos_masu@bcn.cat

People with reduced mobility may have difficulty getting around Park Güell due to its architectural features, with flights of steps and uneven paths. There is a specific itinerary adapted to people with mobility difficulties.

Two wheelchairs are available upon request at Park Güell. If you have any kind of special requirements, please contact the Visitor Attention Service at parkguell@bsmsa.cat

The tourist coach car park has 3 available spots for people with reduced mobility.

Park Güell is located on Carrer d’Olot in Barcelona. We recommend three easy, practical ways to reach the restricted area:

  • Carretera del Carmel, 23, where there is also a coach park.
  • Carrer de Larrard (entry from the Carrer d’Olot side lane).
  • Avinguda del Santuari de Sant Josep de la Muntanya, entry by escalator.Mapa

Park Güell occupies 12 hectares, which include the monumental, forest and panoramic areas. Its regulation allows us to preserve this iconic space and improve the quality of life of local residents, while at the same time offering a better experience for the thousands of visitors to the Park, who will find a better quality experience and a more accessible setting. The income generated by this tourist management will be devoted to improving Park Güell and its setting.
