A great attraction for both adults and kids alike. We went in February in a sunny day and it was busy, so expect crowds.

This Gaudi work has a relatively cheaper entrance fee (8€ for students and 12€ for adults) compared to the architect's other works. The audioguide is free and is available in different languages. The design of the palace's interior is filled with wood and iron works, which shows how talented Gaudi was. It made me realize how lucky the architect was... More

I'm not sure why I could get free ticket here, but it might because it was Sunday... also free audio guide:) Inside, it was very nice and really bigger than I thought. It was old but I thought that 'it is Gaudi's!!' Especially, I liked the organ in the main hall.

We went as two families with teenagers without buying tickets in advance. We just happened upon it and there were no lines. Audio tour included with admission and the building has been kept up very nicely. The rooftop view is superb. We enjoyed it with not many people there as it was closer end of day. We saw it in...

We walked from valcarra metro station. Beware this route HSS massive hills. We loved this route as you walked all the way round this way. Meeting different artists and stalls along the way. We had a great day and the buildings in the part which you pay €8 to visit are unbelievably amazing. One of our best days in Barcelona.

I thought the lines for Casa Battlo and Casa Ametller were too long, and the price too high for what I was expecting to see. Instead, I wandered around back towards La Rambla and stumbled upon Palau Guell. Figuring it was a sign from Fate, telling me I needed to see at least ONE Gaudi residence before I left the... More

I got to see the famous bench and check seeing that off of my bucket list! It was great to see the view of Barcelona (down to the Mediterranean Sea) which was breathtaking!

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.
