When we participated in this tour, we had the chance to take advantage of the explanations of Mercè, the authorized guide with whom we had already made the great tour of Sagrada Familia. Professional and synthetic, she gave us a lot of interesting information about this incredible park.


  • Group size: small (we were nine people)
  • Flexibility: the tour is well-organised and divided into two parts. The first part covers the non-monumental, free side of the park, whilst the second is devoted to the monumental aspects, featuring the famous salamander, waved benches and the conciergerie buildings.
  • Accessibility: Not suitable for wheelchair users or those with reduced mobility.
  • Interactivity: The guide is very attentive and will answer all of your questions.

Useful information

  • Times: Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 10am.
  • Duration: 1h30.
  • No time limit: following the tour, you’re free to stay in the park for as long as you like.
