As usual, fascinating Gaudi architecture and designs, lots of lovely photos and an informative audio guide - save for the very last bit when it was on the rather lengthy side. Included an exhibition of some of the furniture from different furniture designers from the era. Some lovely pieces of furniture.

Palau Guell is a true gem ! This beautiful residence is a wonder to all senses. It is pretty inexpensive to visit and you are given an audio tour guide that provides details of all the structures and the functions of all the rooms. Do not miss if visiting Barcelona.

In my second time visiting this park, I was very disappointed because they closed the best parts and now you have to paid. This is unfair because it should be a public park to enjoy the day.

It is a good place to kill some time and know more about Gaudí. It costs 12 euros from an adult and you can use an audio description device with multiple languages for free. Prepare yourself to face multiple stairs.

Wouldn't have wanted to live here but it is the most extraordinary building - so much tucked away inside. The roof area is closed if there is any rain or drizzle, without reduction in entrance fee.

Of all the Gaudi buildings, it's hard to choose a favorite. Loved touring the inside of Casa Mila in 2006. Loved visiting Park Guell on the same trip. This year we toured Casa Battlo and thought it was stunning. But I must say that the fantasy and playfulness of Park Guell makes it my favorite. Don't miss it.

You get an audio guide with the ticket that makes the difference. With it you get to understand the history of the palace and how Guell influenced Gaudi's path and career. The interior is tasteful in its lavishness, truly inpressive.

Don't miss this place! I had no idea you could go inside, and was delighted to discover that you could! It is across from Hotel Gaudi.

This is definitely a "don't miss" on the list of sites to see in Barcelona. Palau Guell is the Barcelona home of the Guell Family, one of the richest families of their time. Eusebio Guell hired Antoni Gaudi to design this architectural masterpiece. For a nominal fee, you can get an audio tour that provides you with an amazing amount... More

Another one of Gaudí's masterpieces, it goes to show that normal/everyday people don't do great art... it's really breathtaking and to this day, still impressive. You can get tickets at the site of the palace, no need to book, the audioguide is really informative. Definitely recommend it!

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.
