Park Güell stop
From this stop you can start a climb that will allow you to discover a large open space where Antoni Gaudí designed a residential development based on organic forms, where nature and urbanism come together as a true work of art.
A hill with a Modernista park and a lookout point
From the Park Güell stop on the Blue Route located on Travessera de Dalt, you can walk up Carrer de Larrard to the hill where Park Güell and the Gaudí House Museum are located. It is approximately a 15-minute walk.
If you continue along the route into the Carmel district, you will discover the remains of an anti-aircraft battery from the Spanish Civil War that offers spectacular views of Barcelona.
The Park Güell stop is the starting point of a walk up to one of the world’s most original parks, where Antoni Gaudí combined nature with architecture in a monumental complex that had been conceived as a luxury development for Barcelona’s wealthiest families. On one side of Plaça de la Natura, delimited by the famous wavy bench that is undertaken in the trencadís broken-tile mosaic style and offers amazing views of the city, is the Gaudí House Museum, which was the architect’s home for almost 20 years.
And if when you leave the park you feel like going on a trip, you can continue climbing up the hill to another elevated point of Turó de la Rovira, where the Carmel bunkers, which were used to defend Barcelona in the Spanish Civil War, have become one the best places to enjoy panoramic views of Barcelona.
