Disruptions to visits

Afectacions de la visita

Park Güell's historical, architectural and artistic uniqueness was recognised by the Spanish state in 1969, when it was declared a Monument of Cultural Interest.

In 1984, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) went further, and declared it a World Heritage site. This distinction is awarded to all natural areas and cultural features in the world of great value, which must be protected in order to guarantee their conservation, so that future generations can continue to enjoy them.

This mission could not be carried out without a constant task of conservation, restoration and protection of this asset of cultural interes.

Sometimes these works can alter the visit in some way, however, they are essential to improve the condition and preservation of the park’s heritage.

Recovery balustrade

Nature Square: recovery of the modernist balustrade

In November 2021, an important project got underway in the upper part of Nature Square's esplanade: the reproduction of the modernist balustrade that delimits a path and crowns all the stone palms. It is possible to reproduce the balustrade thanks to the old photographs of the park conserved by the Heritage department.

With the passage of time, the balustrade has suffered changes and deterioration. Some years ago, it was decided to renovate it, although work was later halted. 

The lack of documentation on how it was built has created a lot of uncertainty, making its construction a matter of guesswork, trial and error.

The renovation of the Modernista balustrade and the first two palm supports is now complete. The surrounding area has been adapted while it is not possible to condition the rest of the palm supports.

The date of completion is, at present, uncertain. 

This work started in September 2021 and is still in progress.

Start: November 2021 - End: -




 Interventions outside Park Güell


Escales Baixada Glòria

Works of redevelopment of Baixada de la Glòria and replacement of mechanical staircases

We would like to inform you that two of the three sections of the escalators in Baixada de la Gloria are now operational. They are the ones between Vallcarca Avenue and Mare de Déu del Coll Street, as well as Sostres Street and Coll del Portell Avenue.

The special feature of these escalators is that they automatically go uphill, but are reversible by a button and if they detect that there are no users, they tilt and start to change direction to downhill.

The third and last section of escalators will come into operation in the summer.

The alternative route we offer you to come to Park Güell is to go along:
