We went here after Sagrada Familia with high expectations as it is designed by Gaudi- but to be honest, it was kind of boring and smaller than we expected. If you have extra time, go, but overall not worth the hype.

I see confusion in reviews between Palau Guell (on Rambla) and Park Guell (north west of the city, a bit far from other attractions). Palau Guell has the most colorful roof top chimneys and is well worth a visit, even after seeing Case Batllo and Casa Mila. As most museums, it's closed on Monday.

Another must see on any trip around Barca. The architecture is strange and feels wonderful to see. The place was clean and although busy, was also relaxing. Plan carefully so you can relax and soak up the free atmosphere and sunshine.

One of the iconic places to visit whilst in Barcelona , found Park Guell a fascinating magical easy to get to without the crowds and a great view of Barcelona to boot . This is an easy 1/2 day visit from the Las Ramblas , taking bus no. 24 from the Placa Catalunya ( top end of Las Ramblas )... More

Full of wild design and mixtures of color. It is a nice place for photos and so interesting to see. We spent the better part of 2 hours just slowly absorbing all the details. Not a place to see when you are short of time or in a rush if you want to see everything.

you must read the design idea before you go, otherwise, it's hard for you to understand why Gaudi design something unique. After you understand the design behind, then you will enjoy it and realize we are still very behind him.

Please do not miss this site when visiting Barcelona! Antonio Gaudi was an amazing architect and Barcelona is filled with his works, but this one in particular is spectacular and mesmerizing. I still can't get my head around the design technique and difficulty of creating this mansion so long ago. The pictures do not do justice to the size and... More

A beautiful palace, very close to La Rambla. The visit will cost you 12 euros that will include a self guided tour offered in several languages, set your own pace and enjoy the beautiful rooms, paintings, etc. There is not much furniture but if you like Gaudí's works, you will enjoy it.

This building is well worth visiting. It is very different from Gaudi's other buildings and it provides a look at a more traditional building. The interior details are beautiful and show outstanding workmanship.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
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 forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
