Beautiful location. Even if you can’t get tickets to go closer to the Gaudi sights you can still see a lot of them from the distance by going around the park which is free entry so don’t think you’ve missed out if tickets aren’t available.
For 2nd year in a row failed to visit the statue park. It's under renovation for ages, and they favor the guided tours at a cutthroat price, so you can only see the partly covered exhibits early evening. Best to avoid altogether until renovations are done and perhaps visitor restrictions ease up. BTW, 3rd visit and not once did all escalators work. Pathetic, really.
We had no idea you had to have tickets to see the famous park area. When we arrived, they had sold out for the day and were only selling tickets for the following day. It was our last day in town, so we missed seeing it. You can enter the park itself, but there really isn't much to see if you don't have tickets to enter the section where the beautiful mosaic work is located. Buy tickets in advance!
If you want to see Gaudi's work you need a ticket. Tickets are usually sold out, so buy in advance online. Or you can come before parc is officialy open till 8.00 am or after closing 20.30. You can take there bus V19 from Sagrada Familia, it takes about 30 minutes, the bus stop is few blocks away from cathedral
Brilliant! Definitely worth getting the ticket for the monumental zone. Book early to avoid disappointment. The park is huge. When exploring outside of the monumental core, it’s not very clear where to go to see the architectural work and you can end up walking a long way and not seeing much. I found that most of the interesting architectural work is really close by to the monumental core. The rest of the park is perfect for long tranquil walks through nature and views of the city from the top, higher end of the park are great. On the way to the park, I caught the metro to Lessops and walked from there. The route is well signposted and only took about 10 minutes contrary to the website saying 20-25. I caught the free Park Güell bus (available for ticket holders only) back afterwards to the Alfons X metro station. The bus took ages. Would definitely walk back to Lessops if I were to do it again.
You have to know exactly when you are hoping to go see the park. The tickets cannot simply be purchased at the gate, as they frequently sell out for each hour. So if you get there at noon, the next time you might be allowed to walk into the little plaza with the bench would be at 7 pm because all the other time spots have been sold. So plan your visit diligently. However, you can still visit most of the park for free at any time, just not the iconic bench area.
