Apartments near the Guell Park in Barcelona: accommodation in the best location

The Park Güell is, without doubt, the most emblematic open space of the city of Barcelona. In it, the nature and architectural creations of the Catalan artist Antoni Gaudí merge into a unique composition in the world. The park is located in the El Carmelo neighbourhood (or, in Catalan, El Carmel), on the highest part of the hill, in Barcelona. After climbing the steep stairs, you will reach the glorious complex.

The park was the idea of Eusebi Güell, who entrusted his design to the renowned modernist Gaudí, whose works today are one of the main tourist attractions of Barcelona. The park was built more than a hundred years ago, between 1900 and 1914, and it was officially opened in 1926. It is considered as World Heritage, by UNESCO, along with other works by the Catalan artist.
The merging of architecture with nature is ideal for a work by Gaudí, who had also designed the Sagrada Familia. He found much of his inspiration in the organic elements of nature.

One of the pieces that stand out in this splendid park is the mosaic known as "the dragon" ("el drac", in Catalan). It is located at the entrance of the park. It represents a salamander with Mediterranean colours. The highest points of the park offer complete views of the city, where you can see the Sagrada Familia and all the great structures of Barcelona.

Inside the park you can enjoy a wide variety of exotic birds, plants and corners specially designed to enjoy nature.

Places to visit near the Park Güell

In the area of Parque Güell there are countless green spaces and historical sites to learn more about the history of Catalonia, and about Antoni Gaudí. These are some of the tourist points near the Park Güell that you can visit:

  • Casa Museu Gaudi. The residence of the modernist architect Antoni Gaudí, creator of the Park Güell and the Sagrada Familia, is located within the Park Güell complex. The artist lived in this picturesque house for about 20 years, from 1906 to 1925, shortly before his death. There, you can visit an exquisite collection of furniture and objects created by Gaudí, as well as works by other iconic artists of Catalan modernism.
  • Carmel bunkers. Also known as the "antiaircraft batteries", it is a construction that dates back to the Spanish Civil War in the Can Baró neighbourhood. Due to its historical nature, since it is the ruins of the city's anti-aircraft defence axes, the site is considered a Spanish Historical Heritage, but the reason why a large number of tourists climb every day to this high point of the city is for the stunning view it offers.
