This is a must visit for anyone interested in Gaudi's work and the connection with Guell. To see so many new ideas all put to work in one home was amazing. The audio guide was very detailed, not only regarding the materials and their specific...More

Audioguide excellent and not boring at all. The place itself is really amazing and still interesting even if you have already seen casa Battllo or Mila. And what’s more no queue or hassle

Palau Guell was down the street from my hotel and I had ignored it in years past. This Palace was a revelation in the early development of Gaudi's architectural beginning and growth. I must recommend going all the way up to the roof. Gaudu's inventive...More

The weather wasn’t too good and we were looking for something inside. If you are interested in Gaudi, go there. Even if the weather is good, it is impressive to see what he created!

Another example of what Gaudi did best. It is tucked on a side street off La Rambla and worth a quick diversion to see.

Saw the sign when walking the Ramblas, so glad we went. Late afternoon, no queues, no crowds. Good audio guide give you plenty of information. Beautiful hand-carvings and so much detail. Loved the roof terrace and the chimneys. Well worth a visit.

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I had the opportunity to tour this palace designed by Gaudi. The architecture was amazing. Don't forget to look up at all the ceilings! Absolutely stunning!

This is the cheapest Gaudi experience you could possibly get, but still pretty interesting and with a very nice audio guide. The palace is definitely not as different as the other Gaudi buildings but it feels more authentic and there is more of it that's...More

It is a great building. Go and see it. It is right next to Las Ramblas. Dear Trip advisor there is nothing else to say ;)

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

Hi Lady_Dee, it took us about 1 to 1,5h to go through it with the audio guide. Depending on if you also want to do all video shows and additional exhibition information.
