THE CITIZEN PARK
The park is one of the largest green spaces in Barcelona, with more than 17 hectares, next to the Sierra de Collserola.
The park is located in the district of Gracia, between the neighborhoods of La Salud, Vallcarca-Penitents and El Coll, and borders on Carmelo.
The regulated tourist area occupies only a small part of the park; the rest are nature spaces and leisure areas of free access for all.
Beyond the architectural heritage, the park constitutes a reserve of nature, gardens and biodiversity in the center of the city.

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 [email protected]
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 [email protected]
The tourist coach car park has 3 places 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: The Bus Shuttle Service (BUS GÜELL), which is INCLUDED in your ticket, takes only 15 minutes from the Alfons X metro station to this entrance, 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
The restricted area occupies 7.9% of the total area of the Park. Regulating entry to it allows us to conserve 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.
Yes, there is the 'Park Güell and schools' programme, which offers educational centres from EU countries the chance of visiting the restricted area with a guide specialised for your age group, or unaccompanied providing that a series of requirements are met. For this reason, any interested schools should send an email to the Park Güell Commercial Department at [email protected]
