We happened to wander by this site late one afternoon about an hour before they were closing. This is apparently a great time to go because there was no line and we didn't run into many people once inside. The architecture is stunning and it's...More

Amazing level of detail, many innovative touches, gives a feeling for Gaudi's career and Guell's life. In mid-June when we went it was not very crowded and there was no pressure to move through it quickly, so we enjoyed a slow and thorough appreciation. Not...More

We spotted this house from the street and thought it looked interesting..... It was well worth the visit and it was free on a Sunday! Well worth the visit if you like architecture and art.

Extravagant palace for an industrialist and family with dramatic organs, acoustic halls and altars, not typical Gaudí, more renaissance with a Gaudí touch here and there, too much dark wood making it very serious and solemn, nice audio guide and helpful staff!

This is an architectural gem that should not be missed. The entrance fee compared to the other buildings is reasonable. The whole building from the basement to the roof top chimneys need to be seen.

We arrived at 2 pm. There was no line. This building is a gem. It shows what can be done when money is no problem and you have a friend who is a genius. I loved this.

This small palace near the Ramblas is a brilliant example of the craftmanship of Gaudi. The building is elaborated in al it’s details. The visitor can recognize many elements of Gaudi’s exceptional syle.

Really beautiful and impressive! It wasn't very busy when we visited on a friday. When you are fan of Gaudi, then it is a must-see: the rooms, ceilings, glass, lightfall in the house, rooftop and view above Barcelona, etcetera. But also gives an insight in...More

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

It was busy at sporadic times. I went past there 3 times (one of which I went in) and the one time I did go in i didn’t pre-book and it was basically empty. But I’d recommend pre-booking as the line can be 30-40min long... More
