Barcelona City Council regulates the Monumental Core of Park Güell with the priority objective of preserving this iconic space of the city and keeping it in the best possible state of conservation. Local people from the districts adjoining Park Güell (El Coll, Vallcarca-Penitents, La Salut, El Carmel and Can Baró) have free entry to it all the year round using personal and untransferable cards. Residents in these neighbourhoods can ask for their card through the City Council offices.
The regulation of entrance to the Monumental Core of Park Güell begins with the priority objective of ensuring that local people have the right to use it as a leisure area. This regulation means an improvement to the quality of life of the residents and at the same time offers a better experience to millions of visitors, who find a higher quality experience and a more accessible setting.
