This was going to be Gaudi's masterpiece of a new village - but they only sold 1 of 60 houses. You now have to pay to get to the central area (despite what your guidebook may say!) and pay again if you want to go into Gaudi's house. Realistically there are some columns, the viaducts (inc Washerwoman) and some fancy... More

While in Barcelona for 5 days, we saw many of the Gaudi buildings. This one rates #2 in my book right after La Sagrada Familia, with #3 being Park Guell. This house is simply a stunning work of gothic and art noveau style, and each room was better than the last with amazing intricacies with every turn. The highlight of... More

Guëll Palace, which is a mansion that was owned by the wealthy industrialist, Eusebi Guëll, and designed by the architect, Antoni Gaudi, should not be confused with the Parque Guëll (Guëll Park) that was named after the same family. The palace, or town house, is absolutely stunning. We rented the audio guide for our tour, and it was well worth... More

We enjoyed the house, but as we walked around we saw movies of the house with all its furniture. I would have liked to have seen the house without the bare walls.

What a contract to land at the ebginning of a career - contrasting with his later works, this is gothic in style and proportion but with so much inspirational thought - many of todays architects could learnmuch from a visit here !!

We visited this fascinating place, full of amazing architectural structures and mosaic tiling, well worth a visit if these interest you. We had a lovely day in October to visit, we bought tickets on line for the central parc, cheaper and we avoided the queues, but we opted not to visit the the house, the queues were quite long about...

Right in the centre of the old Barri Gothic, shown to us on our Tapas tour. Well worth joining Alicia to show you around.

A little complicated to access and it is very crowded. But it is really worth the visit and to walk in the park.

This place was destined for a resident area but the plans failed. It has 3 wonderful buildings, an open square with a magnificent tile coated bench around it and some other areas. It seems a bit overrated but if you visit Barcelona this is a must do.
