After various attempts over the years to charge an entrance fee to the Parc Güell, from October 25th, 2013, entrance to the 'Monumental zone' of the park will no longer be free.
The area that will now require an entrance ticket includes the Plaça de la Natura, the Sala Hipòstila and, of course, the Drac. Tickets cost €8 (€7 if you buy online beforehand).
If you live in Can Baró, la Salut, Carmel, el Coll or Vallcarca-Penitents, you have the right to free access by acquiring a personal entrance card. You can do this through the Ajuntament's website www.bcn.cat or by calling 010. Entrance will be limited at any time to 400 people.
