Well you won't get to see much, you can visit the ground floor and learning a bit about Gaudi and the house. There was a few furnitures on exhibit but I guess you can see the details of the door, iron fence, window that really show Gaudi's signature. It's free to enter.

A medieval edifice designed by Gaudi for his friend and boss Eusebi Güell, a kind of castle-irony, you do not find him on the Sagrada Familia. It was rented to a bank (Caixa Bank) for a fabulous sum of money and it may be free visit. It has visited to see another Gaudi building.

Gaudi designed the building using symbols from other León architectural styles and motifs. Doesn't resemble his Barcelona work. I'm not sure you can tour the building as it's now a bank. It wasn't open on the several days we went by it. Nor was it signed as being open to public that we could see.

Whe we saw this building I asked "what style is this?" I stood and stared. When I found out it was Gaudi, I understood. It's modernist with gothic and, well, Gaudi! Lovely building to see from the Calle Ancha and side streets. Love those turrets and the figure of St. George slaying the dragon.

This ornate building currently houses a bank. It has the appearance of being hundreds of years old, but actually it is just over 100 years since it was built. It is situated in the centre of the old town.

This is an unexpected architecturally significant sight to see in Leon, the design is more modern and something you would expect in Barcelona. It is interested to see in Leon set amongst the classical style buildings. The location is really good so it doesn't take a long time out of your day to see this, there is also a nice... More

The building is just sitting on the edge of old town but the design of the building is classical with a Gaudi twist. The building is not open to the public which is a shame but understandable

Interesting for a different perspective on Gaudi from what the one you gather from his work in Barcelona. It's not open to the public.

It is a nice surprise that you are able To see work of a master so far from his native Catalonia. Nobody can stand in front of his work without exciting!!!
