The Palau Güell was designed by the young Gaudí and is a wonderful blend of medieval opulence and the architect's unique exuberant style.

This is a fantastic modernist house that is worth a visit. The attention to detail and design is amazing. A unique space that will make you wish it was your house.

This former family home, made mostly of wood and wrought iron, was interesting and enjoyable, but definitely not as "wowing" as Gaudi's other works in the city. Definitely cool to explore, with some interesting features and design work. The audio guide was helpful and informative, but I would have preferred to just take in the art itself, and have a... More

After visiting Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, and La Sagrada Familia on the previous, "all Gaudi" day of our Barcelona vacation, we thought we'd hit all the highlights. Our visit to Palau Guell proved us wrong. We found this building contributed greatly to our understanding of and appreciation for, Gaudi's handling of space, light, and texture. Perhaps because we weren't surrounded... More

It's a nice option to visit in Barcelona, there you have a whole decorated building with an amazing architecture and on the roofing there is a view of Barcelona! Maybe you'll pass by some queue to get inside...

I wont say this is a must see but if you have time and want to know how the rich lived, thats the place. The entrance fee includes the audio guide so is good to understand Gaudi's thoughts better. Every detail has been attended to. Truly impressive designer!

Design down to the very smallest detail. Gaudi didn't leave anything to chance. Lots and lots of rooms and a great view over the Barcelona rooftops. Nice (small) museum shop.

I was here last year May 2013, was no need to pay. Now need to pay Euro 11 I mean yes is really nice but not really worth it. I don't really understand why everything have to pay in Barcelona. I trust Gaudi wanted people to appreciate his work instead of use him for earning that much money. BTW: when... More
