Really enjoyed visiting the palace. It was a bit pricey for what it is and you need to book tickets ahead of time. There is lots of walking as well as stairs. It's a beautiful example of Gaudi's work and the roof-top has a nice view of the city.

The audio tour takes about an hour so unless you are really into gaudi you may find the tour drag on as you cannot fast forward the audio guide. Must go to the roof to see the chimneys

You should appreciate the creativity, the structural intrigue, even if you have not been a fan before. Give the man his due.

Palau Guell is a beautiful green oasis in a city with not too much green space. We didn't enter the monument section (it was totally sold out, we'll do it next time) but we were able to see some of Gaudi's works from afar through walking through the free section. It was an awesome morning's walk.

Inaugurated in 1888 and designed by Antoni Gaudi, aa a stately home for Eusebi Guell, and often missed by visitors to Barcelona. Magnificent façade, chimneys, metalwork, columns, ceilings, doors, windows/glass, lights, furniture etc. Every detail a creation in its own right. A must see….

One of the main reasons I wanted to visit Barcelona was to experience all of Gaudi's work. Park Guell was towards the top of the list, I just wish I had done more research prior to the visit. We used a hop on hop off bus to get to the other side of town to visit the Park, and it... More

Situated just off La Rambla, to the right as you walk towards the sea. The Palau Guell is a charming residence designed by Gaudi. It resembles a medieval house with entrance and stables, central hall and viewing galleries. But it also has elements of Southern Europe and the Middle East, with courtyards and shade. Charming. Audio guide is included with... More

This house is the reason I came to Barcelona. I am a real Anthoni Gaudi fan. The home is a fantasy land.of good living. I think the best part is the roof whose chimneys are cones of different shapes and colors. Since we stayed at the Hotel Gaudi we would sit on the roof and stare at the lighted chimneys... More

This has been one of the highlights of our visit to Barcelona. No queues to get in, good AV guide. A must see for visitors, especially for Gaudi fans.

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.
