...this is a must! Walk around the Park to appreciate the landscape and design, but definitely visit the house, too.

THe park is totally worth seeing. Plan some time to walk around and enjoy the combination of surrealistic toy-like peices by Gaudi and rich mediterrenean nature. THe park will surprise you with all kinds of street musicians, high spots offering excellent panorama of the city (some of them quite scary when it comes to getting down with no rails). It... More

The Palau Guell is clearly one of the most interesting places you would visit in BCN, the other three also were designed by - yes, you perhaps guessed it: Antoni Gaudi! This is actually a palace, and the reason to visit would be to admire the rather quirky, unique and completely-different-from-normal aesthetics/ design of this place. It is fascinating to... More

Gaudi at his best with a feel that cost is not an issue. A little different than the rest of his work so should see and should also go to the free to enter park next to it...

Another wonderful Gaudi masterpiece! The chimneys on the rooftop are spectacular.Reasonably priced and an audio guide is included which is very interesting.

A beautiful and mystical place to wander around. The walk to the very top was definitely worth the effort as the views across the whole of Barcelona and on to the Mediterranean were breathtaking.

You never expect to see such buildings in a city. Situated in a park a little further from the city centre, it's a long hike up to the park from the train station. But there are outdoor escalators to help (not sure if they operate while it rains). The place is packed with tourist. And there are only 2 of... More

Having visited Casa Battlo and Parc Guell - both teeming with colour and light, I found the Palau Guell dark and austere in comparison. However, there is no shortage of the man's talent for beauty of design coupled with practicality and brilliant engineering. If you are a real Gaudi fan, definitely include this, but for others, maybe not at the... More

The park is large but the key feature is the ticketed entry to Gaudi's work which is not to be missed.

Gardens are free around Gaudis stairway to see the mosaiics and buildings is 8 euros. The architecture is so modern and contemporary despite being over a 100 years old. We took a taxi as there was four of us and was 10 euros from the centre of town, a lot easier than walking and taking the bus. We went in... More
