We were in the area so popped in for a late afternoon visit. The audio tour was very good. The home is incredible. Gaudi had such an incredible mind to be able to envision such a wonderful design. Enjoyed hearing the organ play and the...More

I think the price is too expensive for the place. It does have great architecture though. I love that there are many rooms to see. Nothing to see underground. Don't miss the chance to go to the rooftop and see the city view. With that...More

This gem is very important to understand the close relationship between A.Gaudi and his patron and close friend the wealthy aristocrat E.Guell who commissioned Gaudí to design and build this small scale palace near La Rambla- sparing no expense. You can visit it and see...More

Beautiful house with incredible features. Great audio guide explains the rich history and exhibitions and movies bring the history and style of Gaudi alive.

The Palau Guell shows what happens when creativity meets a financial backer. This house is a tour de force of engineering masterpiece. From the lower level stables to the rooftop. Such thought. Such quality materials. A must see, as is everything Gaudi..

This isn't a massive house (like Casa Mila for example) but it is VERY beautiful. Superb detailing - if you were to visit only one Gaudi house apart from the Sagrada, then this would be my choice. Although why visit only one more? Casa Mila...More

Palau Guell was ten minutes' walk from our hotel so we saved it for our final morning in Barcelona. We were lucky to get there in time to visit the roof before the rain made it too slippery, so go on a sunny day if...More

Such an amazing building and different from la pedrera as a complete house and not apartments. Well organised and so much to see and appreciate.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

Well, the base of the stone parabolas must be 10 or 12 feet wide. But there’s elaborate grillwork covering the openings. The actual human entry gates are pretty standard size. The grillwork probably swings open though to... More

It was busy at sporadic times. I went past there 3 times (one of which I went in) and the one time I did go in i didn’t pre-book and it was basically empty. But I’d recommend pre-booking as the line can be 30-40min long... More
