The tiled salamander and houses are all at the entrance BUT you have to go through the entire park to enter into the area. It is ONE WAY once you reach the top seating balcony area overseeing the tiled homes and picture of the park. Lots of aqua ducts and there are a few seating and resting areas in the park for people to play ball. It's a regular park for locals to use for free, not tourists. You can spend as long as you want in the park but once you exit, that's it. The most photographed part is at the very end. Packed with tourists taking pictures. Be careful to buy online tickets from their site, not a third party!!! Check Park Güell.Barcelona
Disappointing and not of an international standard for a public park. Looks very rundown and appears that there isn’t a maintenance and improvement regime. Considering Gaudi proposed the estate as a public health location it is ironical that the public toilet facilities were disgusting- broken smelly urinals etc no toilet paper and cleaning services apparent. Would not recommend considering the cost of entry and travel to the location. Time better spent elsewhere.
It was great when it used to be free. Now you need a ticket to visit it (and it is expensive) and then you need to queue for many of the landmarks of the park. We used to love it and this time we didn't enjoy it at al. So my advice is to skip it and visit one of the other Gaudi landmarks instead (Casa Battlo', La Pedrera, etc.).
Another must see place. Eccentric, fascinating, lovely views. Interesting background story was conceived as a very exclusive housing estate but only 2 houses got built both of which are open to public. Grounds full of strange monuments designed by Gaudi
Worth the walking required. Take the official park tour so as not to miss the more hidden locations and stories behind them. When we visited, you needed to be on a formal tour (from any group) to access the area seen in this picture.
The fact that you have to pay for entrance is a bit of a mickey take (up until 2018 it was free to all). You need no more than 2 hours here and get here early to miss the throngs. Too many people limited accessibility at certain points. The street sellers were every 50m, it spoils the vibe. I wouldn't go back again.
