Repair works have started at the Park Güell entrance on Baixada de La Glòria

The repair works started on Monday 22 January in a short stay area on Baixada de La Glòria, financed with the revenues from tourist regulation of the Park Güell Monument Hub.

For this reason, we recommend that all visitors use another entrance to Park Güell during this period of time, instead using the Line 3 Metro stop of Lesseps, from which you can arrive by taking the escalators up Avinguda de Sant Josep de la Muntanya (15-20 minutes). 

Creation of a new short stay area with views toward Putxet 

The works are allocated to landscaping a rather large area located above the stairs by the Park Güell entrance from Baixada de la Glòria, currently in extremely poor condition, which will have a cost of some € 450,000. Further, after they are finished there will be a new scenic viewpoint facing Putxet.

The new space will have a viewpoint of some 320 m2, with a series of small esplanades at the northern end, which will be created by constructing stairs and paths that will make this entrance accessible, respecting and restoring the dry wall remains at this site. Both the stairs and the paths will be built with vibrated brush-finished concrete prepared on site. Where there are rocky outcrops, they will be incorporated into the works as paving or slopes.

The dry stone walls will be restored and rebuilt to the heights defined in the project.

The project is based on these action areas:

  • Cleaning and adaptation of the surrounding area
  • Clearing and pruning of existing plant life
  • Accessibility and treatment of pavements
  • Safety on all paths and stairs
  • Lighting for the path and new viewpoint
  • Landscaping and scenic enhancement
  • Protection—via handrails—of points that must not be accessible due to safety reasons or to conserve the dry wall ruins
  • Careful cleaning and clearing of the ruins
  • Urban furniture
