Beautiful view from the top of the park.

Amazing architecture. Beautiful views of the city. Be prepared for a work out if you are coming by train. It is uphill to the park.

This was one of those don't missed. However, be prepared for the uphill battle. The park is nothing but hills, hills, and more hills. But it is so worth every moment of the climb as you get beautiful views of the whole city against the backdrop of the ocean. You simply must do it!

You must see everything that has Gaudi in it! The buildings, the park, Sagrada familia, etc. Make sure you have tickets ahead of time, you can buy them on the internet. Otherwise you may not be able to get in. You can always vivit the outside of the park Guell.

There's enough Gaudi and Gaudi inspired to see in the rest of Barcelona unless you love the stuff! It was smaller and less park like than I imagined. It was also far out for us and I personally would not go again or recommend. After an hour of waiting around in heavy rain with very little shelter, a total 30... More

Less grand than some of his other creations, the city dwelling that Gaudí designed for his mentor's family provides yet another example of the architect's artistic genius and eye for detail and functionality, as well as a window into the everyday life of Barcelona's wealthy bourgeoisie. The explanations of the audio-guide are very helpful, providing historical background and drawing attention... More

A clear example of Gaudi's early works, maybe not as matured as his later works but still showing his genius. Worth a visit

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.
