We felt a bit cheated having paid £13.50 each for an audio guide which did little to explain anything other than the well known myth of George and the dragon. Both of our audio guides stopped working part way through so we couldn’t even listen...More

Good overview of a non Gaudí Barcelona building. Good value for money and views from the rooftop. Audio/visual experience was fun and good for kids, but don’t expect a historic designed interior like Casa Batlló!

This building opened in the past 18 month and is the work architect contemporary of Gaudi. Unfortunately, although the shape, ceilings and floors of the rooms you travel through are original the space is little more an exhibition space then a house tour. That said,...More

We did this because we were low on time and it was near the hotel. We didn't expect it to be so much fun! Informative about the building, the architect and Barcelona, the interactive audio tour and videos were brilliant and very impressive.

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
