One of the most impressive Gaudi's masterpieces in Barcelona - park Guell - can be visited with no admission fee. Plan at least few hours for an amazing walk.

It was opened to the public in 1922 as a park for its beauty. In 1984 it was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The park covers an area of 17.18 hectares. The design clearly demonstrates the architect's hand, and the peculiar style of Gaudi is evident in any element.

Start at the main entrance  - a grand staircase leads to the Hipóstila room divided by a number of water sources. Here is where you find the famous lizard, which is normally confused with a dragon.  Spent some time in majestic column hall, and be ready to start your journey - thrih the nature and untamed phantasy of Gaudi. 

Don't miss a square a square of sand enclosed by a bank of style completely gaudinian, which is shaped like a snake and is completely covered with brittle. This place has good views over Barcelona.
