Are pets allowed in?

Access to the regulated area of the park with companion animals (pets) is only permitted if the animals are duly secured on a lead (in accordance with the Byelaw on the Protection, Possession and Sale of Animals (OPTVA)). Visitors can access the entire park with their pets, except for Nature Square, Hipostyle Room, the Dragon Stairway, the Austria Gardens and the Laundry Room Portico to ensure the safety and protection of people, pets and heritage. People who own or accompany pets shall be responsible for any damage that those animals may cause.


Companion animals may only be taken off a lead in the woodland area of Park Güell (outside the regulated area), between 6 am and 11 pm. This is permitted for as long as they stay close to the responsible person and under their visual control, and provided they are trained to respond to that person's commands. This does not apply to potentially dangerous dogs, which must always be kept on a lead and muzzled, as legally required.
