Free admission to Park Güell is now easierThe improvement to the Gaudir Més register makes it easy to obtain free daily tickets for Park Güell for anybody registered as living in Barcelona. Nearly 60,000 citizens visit the park free of charge every month.
City residents can register in person at Citizen Help and Information Offices with an appointment, or on the virtual procedures website. Once registered, users can download a ticket giving free admission to the park without booking. The ticket must be downloaded the same day as the visit.
The service is available 365 days a year and is compatible with offers from other participating public and private facilities.
Citizens can also access Park Güell for free with the local resident card for those living in the neighbourhoods of La Salut, Vallcarca, El Coll, El Carmle, Can Baró and Baix Guinardó, and with the card for schools in the vicinity. Local people, schools, sportspeople and dog-walkers account for 87% of daily visits.
Open and sustainable space
The morning and evening time bands set aside exclusively for local people and regular users are being kept: ‘Bon dia, Barcelona’ and ‘Bon vespre, Barcelona’ respectively. Park Güell opens at 7 am and from then until 9.30 am the morning time band means exclusive access for local people, schools and anybody on the Gaudir Més register. Visiting hours end at 8 pm, which is when the evening time band starts for exclusive use of these same groups until 10 pm.
In terms of the sustainability of tourism, a series of measures has been designed to reduce the volume of tourists to be borne by the park to a maximum of 4.5 million a year, as well as the parking capacity for coaches. The regulation of access points (some exclusive to local people) has also been increased, revenue reinvested in the surrounding area, such as the recovery of the La Sarva spring, and support given to culture and local education through specific activities and programmes.
