Frequently asked questions

From October 2013, Barcelona City Council has got under way a plan for regulation of Park Güell, with the priority objective of preserving this iconic space of our city and keeping it in the best possible state of conservation. For years now, Park Güell and its entire surrounding area have been suffering from mass tourist visits that involve serious disturbance for local residents, as well as a constant degradation of this architectural heritage, unique in the world. It is in order to avoid a worsening of that situation, access is regulated and tickets are required. This regulation restricts the visitor capacity of Park Güell to a maximum number of 1,400 visitors per hour.

Yes. Access to Park Güell is limited to 1400 visitors per hour. For this reason, we recommend advance purchase of tickets via this website, thus enabling you to enter the most iconic spaces of the Park within the reserved times.

Park Güell has achieved two certifications: Global Safe Site and Safe Tourism Certified. These certifications recognize that the organization fulfills all established safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. On our safety measures you will find more information on the measures taken as well as some recommendations.

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 of the Park, who will find a better quality experience and a more accessible setting. The income generated by this tourist management will be used to improve Park Güell and its setting.

Tickets to Park Güell provide access to the monumental, green and panoramic areas. 

In order to guarantee access to Park Güell, we recommend advance reservation and purchase of tickets. This reservation can be made up to three months ahead of the visit, choosing the date and the time-band, up to a maximum of nine tickets per person for each purchase. If your group has more than ten persons, then you have to register and reserve tickets in the specific “Organised Groups and Professionals” section.

First and last time bands with tickets available for sale:

(*)If you buy your ticket at the ticket office, the availability of the tickets is subject to the number of visitors, up to a maximum of 1400 people every hour.

Once tickets have been purchased, they cannot be modified and no refunds will be made under any circumstances.

Through this website, both for Individual Purchase (up to 9 persons) and for Organised Groups or Professionals. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance. If you bring your ticket printed out or you show the QR on your smartphone or tablet you can go straight to the chosen access control point (see map). Tickets are assigned for a particular time-band, though you can enter to Park up to 30 minutes after the assigned start time. For example, if you have a reservation for 9.00 h, you may enter the precinct up to 9.30 h. Once you are inside the restricted, you can stay as long as you wish. If you have to collect the ticket at the ticket office, we recommend arriving at the Park long enough in advance to ensure that you do not miss your visiting time.
If you want to purchase the ticket at the ticket offices or from the ATMs at the Park itself, the availability of tickets will be subject to the number of visitors.

Please check first whether it entered as junk mail, or else ring the Visitor Care Service on telephone (+34) 93 4091830 or send us an e-mail to parkguell@bsmsa.cat

No. In order to avoid queues or unnecessary waiting you can go directly to the access-control point by showing your printed ticket or the QR code on your smartphone or tablet.

If you have not printed out the (ticket) receipt, you can go to the ticket offices at Park Güell, where you will be given the tickets, subject to a check on your given name and surname(s) and your reservation number (booking reference).

If you have not purchased a ticket in advance, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to enter at the desired time, especially during periods when a great many tourists are visiting. 

Reservations are held open for half an hour after the reserved time. Park Güell has limited capacity for visitors, in order to conserve the space properly, for which reason the assigned time has to be adhered to.

Once you are inside Park Güell, you can stay as long as you like, but once you have exited, you cannot re-enter.

Park Güell has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

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

The new regulation plan takes into account the needs of local residents in the neighbourhoods adjacent to Park Güell (El Coll, Vallcarca-Penitents, La Salut, El Carmel, Can Baró and Baix Guinardó) and guarantees them unrestricted access free of charge all the year round to enjoy the area. To enter the park, they will need to have a personal and non-transferable card, which may be requested by the entrance staff.

Yes, the access regulation of Park Güell guarantees free entry to Baldiri Reixac, Jesuïtes de Gràcia (Kostka), Reina Elisenda-Virolai, Montseny and Turó del Cargol schools, including the children themselves, members of their families or persons accredited by the father/mother or legal representative.

Yes, there is the 'Park Güell and schools' program, which offers educational centres from EU countries the chance of visiting the restricted area with a guide specialised for your age group, or unaccompanied as long as a series of requirements are met. For this reason, any interested schools should send an email to the Park Güell Commercial Department at parkguell@bsmsa.cat.
